Welcome to Freaky Friday Summer Edition 2016! I am making Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread from Lori and Heather who blog great recipes and posts about over at “Who Needs A Cape?

Freaky Friday is a secret blog hop. Don’t you just love secrets? Each participant is randomly assigned another blogger in the group, we pick a recipe from their blog, and make it.

Who Needs A Cape? is a great place to look for recipes.

I feel like Heather and I are kindred spirits as she loves to watch Housewives shows on Bravo Tv and her superpower is making vodka disappear.

I am currently building up my superpowers and starting with a wine disappearing power. After wine, I will try amaretto.

Lori is like my big sister in that she loves the beach, 80’s power ballads, and has a crazy household. I am made to hang with these girls and their crazy lives! After you meet them you will be too!

Freaky Friday Summer Blog Hop

One of my favorite appetizers that they make is a Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread. I love a bread appetizer that is filling, full of flavor, and one that you can eat with your hands.

Appetizers should be tasty and easy to eat so I can hold a piece of bread in one hand and my drink in the other. Especially if I am hoping to make my drink vanish!

Just check out these warm and buttery marinated artichoke hearts and roasted garlic getting all cozy in the pan.

Once the garlic-cheese-artichoke mixture is complete, just slather the goodness on the toasted slider buns. I scooped about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons onto each one.

The cheesy goodness that is the mixture was enough to generously cover all 16 slider halves.

Broil it for 3 minutes or until brown and bubbly and your garlic artichoke cheese toast is ready for eating!

The best part of this bread is the roasted garlic. It has a sweet, nutty, and rich flavor that sneaks up on you from the background. It is a subtle flavor that stays with you and rounds out all the other flavors.

I like this recipe, wish I had some in front of me now to go with my glass of wine. The flavor combo is perfect.

When do you add artichokes? I missed it in the recipe.

Friday 15th of July 2016

No you didn't miss it. I completely left it out. Sorry. When I start writing I already have made it a few times and about 100 times in my head too. Sometimes I leave out a sentence. So sorry for that. You add them with the garlic. I have revised the recipe. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for being a reader!

This looks insanely delicious and I'm not even a huge artichoke fan! One thing though... it's obvious from the pictures, but the instructions don't say a thing about when to use the artichokes ;) Just wanted to point that out! Can't wait to make these though!

Monday 18th of July 2016

Someone else mentioned that. I changed the recipe to reflect that. Thanks for the heads up and I hope you like them!


Friday 8th of July 2016
