Two kinds of cheese melted and layered with
a spinach and artichoke hearts mixture on
buttery grilled Italian bread.....
What you'll need; fresh spinach, canned
artichoke hearts, 4 slices of cheese
(I used sharp cheddar and provolone),
4 slices of good bread from the bakery section,
Italian, rye, whatever is your favorite, plus
olive oil, butter, sour cream, garlic salt and pepper.
Saute the spinach in olive oil.
Season well with garlic salt and pepper.
Add the chopped artichoke hearts and sour cream.
Heat through and remove from the pan.
Rinse out and dry the pan for grilling the bread.
Return the pan to the heat.
Spread one side of the bread with
soft butter or margarine.
Put 2 slices of bread in the pan buttered side
down. Top each with a slice of cheese and
the spinach artichoke mixture.
Top with the remaining cheese slices.
Top with the remaining bread buttered side up.
Grill until the bottom is golden brown and flip
carefully. Grill the other side until toasted and
the cheese is melted.
