Artichoke Cheese Bread

Artichoke Cheese Bread
What a great flavor explosion! This was a great addition to our weekly menu and we served it with a pasta dish, but it is tasty and hearty enough to serve with just about anything!

You will need:
1 (10 oz.) baguette, halved lengthwise
1 Tbsp butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup grated fresh parmesan cheese
salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste

To make:
Gently remove soft insides of baguette halves, setting "shells" aside to refill later.
Tear soft bread into small pieces by hand.
Melt butter over med-high heat in a skillet.
Add garlic and bread pieces. Cook until bread turns golden brown, about 5 minutes.

Stir together artichoke hearts, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and monterey cheese in a bowl.
Fold in browned bread and season with salt, pepper, and cayenne (if desired). 

Spoon entire mixture into reserved shells and then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Cool 5 minutes and then slice up and serve!
