Wonderful, quick, easy appetizer that looks and taste both professional and elegant. After reading through numerous reviews, following are the most common listed changes: 1.) toast the crostini; 2.) add a clove of minced garlic; 3.) less mayo - 2 vs 5 tablespoons; 4.) add tomato; 5.) reduce the red onion to 1/4 cup finely minced or substitute shallots; 6.) top with cheese prior to baking. With or without the changes, this appetizer is wonderful! Read More

I'll have to say this was a flavorless dish. Even after I tried to spice it up with some garlic it still tasted pretty bad. I ended up throwing most of it away. Read More

This recipe is awesome! I love it! I've served it at multiple parties and it's always gone right away. My only tip - lightly toast the bread under the broiler on each side before adding the topping and broiling. The bread holds up much better this way. Otherwise I find that it tends to get a bit soggy. Otherwise delicious!! Read More

These are delicious! This recipe will be a regular on my hors d'ouevres menu. I only used two tablespoons of mayo and added a good splash of olive oil and ground pepper. It was still very creamy so I think you could get by with just 1 tablespoon of mayo. Also make sure you use the MARINATED artichoke hearts or these will be bland. These are quick and easy and a great change from the usual hors d'ouerves. Read More

Yum! Yum! YUM!!! This was sooo good. I made it for a potluck at work and everyone was raving about it! I followed the recipe exactly plus added 1 clove of garlic 1 totamo 1 tablespoon of olive oil and then sprinkled parmasean on top. I put all of it in a big bowl and put garlic bagel chips around the bowl for everyone to dip instead of putting it on the bread. Great recipe! Will make over and over! Thank you!!! Read More

This was very good. Next time I make it I think I will add a little fresh garlic. Definately toast the bread before topping with the artichoke mixture. I tried it both ways. Read More

WOW! These are so good! We made them last night and have vowed to take them to the next party or event so we can impress everyone. We made the receipe exactly as written however when we do it again we will add some tomatoe's and a black olive to the top of each. I just can't imagine why some reviewers felt that these were bland...the only thing that I can think of is that unmarinated hearts were used. The batch that we made was both full in flavor and delicious. I'm SOOO happy to have found this recipe. Thank you thank you thank you Roxanne! Read More
