Party Snack

Although being a Hoosier/Texan, I am not a huge fan of the weird artichoke. Boiling it and the process of eating it with melted butter made me wonder what all the hubbub was about. Seemed like a lot of trouble to go through for so little a result. However, jarred artichokes are another matter. You might want to try this tasty party recipe…

Recipe:  Artichoke Squares

two 6-ounce jars marinated artichokes
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
4 eggs
1/4 c. dry breadcrumbs
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/8 tsp. oregano
1/8 tsp. Tabasco
2 tbs. chopped fresh parsley
1/2 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated

Drain the oil from one jar of artichokes into a frying pan. Discard the oil from the second jar. Chop the artichokes and set them aside. Saute the onions and garlic in the oil.

Beat the eggs in a small bowl until they are frothy. Add the breadcrumbs and seasonings. Stir in the cheese, artichokes, and sauteed onion.

Turn the mixture into a buttered 7×11″ pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cut into 1-inch squares and serve warm or at room temperature…Serves 20.
