Artichoke & Black Olive Spread

This little gem was tucked away on a folded page in the Nov issue of SL and when I saw it the other night, I wished I had found it during the holidays as it is a wonderful spread for bagels or rye party bread for parties. If you are headed to a Valentines party, this is a wonderful appetizer to take along. Easy and quick, I think you will be pleased with the flavor.

1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup finely shredded mozzarella cheese

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1 teas italian seasoning

Dash of garlic salt

1 can (14 oz) artichoke hearts, drained, coarsely chopped

3 tables chopped black olives

12 plain mini bagels or bagel chips

Heat oven to 375 Mix first 5 ingredients until well blended in large bowl. Stir in artichokes and olives. Spread each bagel half with cream cheese mixture. Place on foil-covered baking sheet

Bake 12-15 min or until light golden and bubbly. Cool 5 min before serving.

I am taking them to Super Bowl Sunday!
