Artichoke Croustades Recipe

Step 1

Roll each bread slice flat with a rolling pin and trim it to form a 2 1/2" square. Brush both sides of the squares lightly with the butter and fit th squares into gem muffin tins, pressing the bread against the sides of the tins.

Step 2

Bake the croustades in the middle of a preheated 350 deg. oven 12-14 minutes, oruntil the edges are pale golden. These may be made 2 days in advance & kept in an airtight container. In a bowl stir together the artich hearts, mayonnaise, 1 tb of the scallion, 1/4 c of the Parmesan, and salt & pepper to taste.

Step 3

Divide the mixture by heaping teaspoons among the croustad and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan on top. Broil the croustades under a preheated broiler about 6" from the heat, being careful not to let the croustade edges burn, for 1 minute, or until the filling is bubbling.

Step 4

Garni the croustades with the scallion green and arrange 3 of them on each of 6 small plates.
