The Superbowl is just around the corner; sadly, my Cardinals won’t be playing in it. Ok who am I kidding, we all know I wouldn’t be watching it even if they were. I just participate in the Superbowl shenanigans strictly for the greasy food consumption, and because of this bread. Just imagine, warm spinach and artichoke dip, spicy jalapeno poppers, AND cheesy garlic bread all attended a swingers party and created this baby right here.
It’s really everything a person could ever want in an appetizer. It’s warm, it can be eaten with your hands, it has a little subtle heat from the jalapenos, it’s soooo fabulously cheesy, it’s Spinach & Artichoke Jalapeno Popper Garlic Cheese Bread!
Now Say that 10 times fast.
Even if you look like an idiot trying to accomplish that, take comfort in knowing you won’t look half as odd as I did trying to photograph this–crouched down, trying to capture this cheesy masterpiece in my front yard, with just a towel on, shampoo still in my hair. So to any of my unfortunate neighbors that potentially had to witness that hot mess, just know that NO, there wasn’t an X-rated photo shoot happening in my driveway, I just needed to shoot this bread while it was still melty and hot, and it just happened to get done while I was in the middle of my shower… #NoRegrets
This bread really couldn’t be any easier. You just smear it with loads of butter *yum*, then you smother it with a thick layer of jalapeno-spinach and artichoke dip *OMG*, then you top it with mounds of shredded cheese *drool*.
The other thing that makes this bread PERFECT for get-togethers is that there’s no double dipping happening behind your back, no unproportionate ratio of dip to chip, and no need for plates! Everything is evenly loaded up on an edible bread boat headed straight for your mouth!
“Tooooot Tooooot!” (my best impression of a “bread boat“)
I really didn’t purposely mean to take a bite then take a picture of it, I just lost all self control for a moment… My 2 year old son is rubbing off on me I guess.
At this point, you don’t even need to finish reading this article; just go make this bread. Right now. GO!
***Note: I used a full jar of Cara Mia Artichoke hearts packed in water, but you could also use their marinated artichoke hearts or even their grilled ones! ***
