Artichoke Bruschetta (or Hot Artichoke Dip)

Ingredients
  1. 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
  2. 1 cup mayonnaise
  3. 1 (14-ounce) can of artichoke hearts (whole, halves, or quarters), drained & chopped
  4. 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  5. 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  6. 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  7. French baguette loaf of bread, cut at an angle into ⅓-inch slices
  8. Fresh chopped parsley or paprika, for garnish

Instructions
  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese until smooth. Blend in mayonnaise and chopped artichoke hearts. Mix in Parmesan, mozzarella, and garlic salt and beat at high speed until mixture is smooth.
  • Preheat broiler to high. Dollop a generous amount of artichoke mixture on each baguette slice and spread all the way to the edges (which will prevent them from burning). Arrange bruschetta on a baking sheet. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes or until topping is bubbly and starting to turn golden brown. Garnish with chopped parsley or a light sprinkling of paprika, if desired. Serve hot.
