Spinach Artichoke Melts

I love spinach.  Even more I love artichokes.  Have you ever had spinach and artichoke dip?  Oh.  My.  Goodness.  I could eat it all day everyday.  These spinach artichoke melts are quite similar to the dip.  Interested?  I thought you might be.  These melts are amazing.  They make great appetizers and you can whip them up in under 10 minutes flat, providing you already have your bread made.  If you have a hard time getting little ones to eat their greens this is a great way to slip them in without them making a fuss.  Cheese is a great way to get kids to eat their veggies and get their calcium too!

Ingredients and Directions for Spinach Artichoke Melts

Ingredients and Directions for Spinach Artichoke Melts

1.  Ingredients

1 bunch spinach
7 oz canned artichoke hearts
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons sour cream
4 slices of Mini French Baguettes
4 slices Monterrey jack cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
Olive oil

To Prepare the Melts

Lightly toast the bread slices in a toaster, or place it in the broiler. If broiling, make sure to set a timer or check frequently to ensure it doesn’t burn.

 Meanwhile, dice the 2 cloves garlic. Chop the artichokes. Wash and stem the spinach, then chop it coarsely.

2.  Heat about 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds.

3.  Then add the spinach and saute for a few minutes until just limp. Drain off any liquid from the pan.

4.  In a small bowl, mix the spinach with the chopped artichokes. Add 2 tablespoons sour cream and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed.

 Spread the mixture over the four slices of bread, and top each with a slice of Monterrey jack cheese. Broil until the cheese melts. Enjoy!
