Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat broiler with rack 4 inches below heating element. Sprinkle anchovies with 1/2 teaspoon salt; crush into a paste using the side of a knife.

  • Transfer anchovy paste to a small saucepan; add oil and heat over medium, stirring frequently, until paste dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Brush 1/3 cup oil mixture evenly on both sides of bread slices; spread in a single layer on a baking sheet. Broil, flipping once halfway through, until bread is crisp and golden in places, 2 to3 minutes total.

  • Toss artichokes with remaining oil mixture. Top each toast with a slice of mortadella, an artichoke wedge, and an olive slice. Drizzle with more oil; serve.
