This warm tasty spread is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It is incredibly easy to make, and always delicious.
Hot Artichoke Spread with Garlic Pita Toasts
2 cans artichoke hearts
1/2 cup mayonnaise (low fat or the real deal)
juice of 1 lemon
1 cup grated parmesean cheese
garlic, to taste ( 2 or 3 cloves, pressed or very finely minced)
Drain and mash the artichokes. Add the other ingredients. Mix well. Place in a baking dish,and bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, until hot and bubbly. Serve with pita toasts.
Note:The consistency before baking should be thick and chunky. If it seems runny, add more cheese. If it seems to dry, add a little more mayo. This truly is an unrecipe, and the measurements listed should be used loosly.
Slice pita bread into 6 triangles, and place on a baking sheet. Brush with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic salt.
Place in a 350 degree oven and toast until slightly brown. Serve warm
Note: you can toast the pita while the spread is baking. Be sure to watch it, as it can burn very quickly once it starts to brown.
This is also great with store bought pita chips, which makes the recipe even easier. Use the sea salt or multigrain flavors.
