Garlicky, Cheesy French Bread w/ Artichoke Hearts
This bread is stuffed with artichoke hearts, cheese, sour cream, garlic - delicious and decadent!
This is wonderful with all the different cheeses, garlic and the artichokes are a nice bonus. This has a lot of garlic, but I don't think it's overpowering with all the other flavors. Toasting the pieces of French bread in butter is genius. This would be a great side dish or work as an easy appetizer.
