- 4 slices of your favorite bread
- 1/4 cup cream cheese
- 1/2 cup chopped artichokes

- Spread 1 T of cream cheese on one side of each slice of bread.
- Melt another knob of butter in pan on medium-high heat. Place one slice of bread (cream cheese side up) in pan. Scoop spinach/artichoke/cheese mixture onto the slice of bread. Cover with 2nd slice (cream cheese side down for this one).
- After the bottom slice is golden brown (~2 minutes), carefully flip the grilled cheese.

- Repeat for second sandwich, using the rest of the spinach/artichoke mixture.
- Cut in half & savor your triangles of cheesy, veggie heaven.
- Add paprika, chili powder or hot pepper flakes to spinach & artichoke mixture to turn up the heat.
