Artichoke Marscapone Grilled Sandwiches

Here’s another one of those minimal effort but maximum taste dinners. I loved the creamy, sweet marscapone with the tangy artichoke heart. There’s no better way to compliment a great filling than to top it off with warm, buttery bread!

  • 8-10 oz artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese (feel free to sub cream cheese or ricotta cheese)
  • 2 slices sharp cheddar, optional
  • 2 tsp herb seasoning
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 4 slices rye or whole wheat bread (I used Arnold’s Sandwich Thins)

In a mixing bowl, combine the artichokes, mascarpone, some salt and pepper. Divide the mixture among two slices of bread. Top the sandwiches with the remaining slices of bread and slice diagonally. Butter each side and grill. Serve warm.

That sounds wonderful!

My family's favorite dip is artichoke hearts, cheddar (it's especially good with really sharp dark cheddar!), garlic, and mayo. It's not the healthiest, but there is something magical about artichoke and cheese.

Yours sounds even BETTER, though! I'm going to have to try that REALLY SOON!

That looks delicious, I love marscapone (even though I've been calling it mascarpone for years, oops) and artichokes are perfectly in season! Will have to try this one...
