Updated December 21, 2009

Ingredients

  • 8
    slices (4x3x1/2 inch) Italian or French bread
  • 1
    tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1
    jar (7.5 oz) marinated artichoke hearts, well drained, chopped
  • 1
    jar (2 oz) diced pimientos, well drained
  • 1/3
    cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/2
    cup chives-and-onion cream cheese (from 8-oz container)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Brush 1 side of bread slices with oil. On ungreased cookie sheet, place bread, oil sides down. In medium bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Spread artichoke mixture over bread slices.
  • 2
    Place slices, oil sides down, on grill (remove from cookie sheet). Cover grill; cook over low heat 4 to 5 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown and topping is hot. Cut slices in half.

  • If you can't find pitted olives, lay the flat side of a chef’s knife over each olive on work surface; press firmly on knife with the heel of your hand to loosen the pit.
  • Assemble the bruschetta several hours ahead of time. Cover and refrigerate them until you are ready to grill.
  • Note: To broil, set oven control to broil. Brush 1 side of bread slices with oil. Place slices, oil sides up, on rack in broiler pan. Broil with tops 6 inches from heat about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. Turn bread slices over; spread with artichoke mixture. Broil with tops 6 to 8 minutes or until topping is hot.
