Artichokes are so handy! They are perfect for easy appetizers. Since Labor Day is just around the corner, this would be an excellent choice for an end-of-the-summer appetizer.
In this easy appetizer recipe, there are only 4 ingredients total. That, in itself makes this easy, but the artichoke and rye appetizers look so great, that your guests will think you spent a lot more time on it. Your friends and guests will love them and they'll get gobbled up in no time.
What you'll need:
- 1 pkg. cocktail rye bread
- 1 can artichoke hearts (in water)
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
First, drain the artichoke hearts. Cut the rye bread slices in half. Mix the mayonnaise and Parmesan cheese. Cut the artichoke hearts into slices and place on slices of the rye bread.
Next, spread about 3/4 tsp of the mayonnaise-Parmesan mixture on top of the artichoke hearts on the bread. Turn on the oven to broil and place mini open-faced sandwiches on a broiling pan and broil until it turns a golden brown. Serve it up, nice and warm!
This recipe makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen.
Yummmmmyyyyy! Make more than you think you'll need. They will go fast.
