A perfect way to use those fall veggies and leftover Thanksgiving potatoes!
Preheat oven to 425ºF.
Unthaw artichoke hearts and squeeze off excess moisture when thawed. Chop roughly. Set aside.
Slice celery stalks thinly. Set aside. Halve leeks and slice into half moon shapes. Set aside.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil and when shimmering, pour in leeks and celery. Stir occasionally until softened, about 8 minutes. Fold in artichoke hearts. Pour in white wine and chicken broth, allowing to cook until nearly evaporated. Fold in chunks of cream cheese until it is all incorporated and cook until melted and incorporated into the mixture. Once melted, remove from heat and stir in lemon juice.
In a 9-inch pie pan, pour artichoke mixture. Fold garlic into mashed potatoes, and dollop mashed potatoes over the top. Or for a decorative top, pipe onto top of mixture with a pastry bag and a large icing decorating tip.
Bake in oven for 35 minutes. Serve warm. Devour.
My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like pizza. Besides getting rave reviews at home, this was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe. This is a lovely way to use stale bread or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes. You can use any kind you like; I have made this recipe with all kinds—red, yellow and orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc.
