About this recipe: Here's a tasty variation for the classic Italian snack.
Wonderful, quick, easy appetizer that looks and taste both professional and elegant. After reading through numerous reviews, following are the most common listed changes: 1.) toast the crostini; 2.) add a clove of minced garlic; 3.) less mayo - 2 vs 5 tablespoons; 4.) add tomato; 5.) reduce the red onion to 1/4 cup finely minced or substitute shallots; 6.) top with cheese prior to baking. With or without the changes, this appetizer is wonderful! - 14 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is awesome! I love it! I've served it at multiple parties, and it's always gone right away. My only tip - lightly toast the bread under the broiler on each side before adding the topping and broiling. The bread holds up much better this way. Otherwise I find that it tends to get a bit soggy. Otherwise, delicious!! - 01 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are delicious! This recipe will be a regular on my hors d'ouevres menu. I only used two tablespoons of mayo and added a good splash of olive oil and ground pepper. It was still very creamy, so I think you could get by with just 1 tablespoon of mayo. Also, make sure you use the MARINATED artichoke hearts or these will be bland. These are quick and easy, and a great change from the usual hors d'ouerves. - 10 Feb 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
