1 cup Reese Marinated Artichokes, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves (or 1 tablespoon dried thyme)
1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano (or 2 teaspoons dried oregano)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
kosher salt and black pepper
6 ounces Brie, rind left on, and sliced
DaVinci extra virgin olive oil for rubbing

1. In a medium bowl, combine the artichokes, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and a pinch each of salt and pepper.
2. Rub the outsides of the bread generously with olive oil. Evenly layer the brie and artichoke mix. Sprinkle with black pepper. Add the top piece of bread.
