Kori’s Stuffed Artichokes

Easy, crowd-pleasing appetizer worthy of a restaurant!

Recipe Information

Ingredients:

1 Jumbo Globe Artichoke
1 cup Italian Seasoned Bread Crumbs
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinegar
Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese
Fresh Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
Diced Pancetta Bacon, cooked

Directions:

Stuffing Mix for 1 Jumbo Artichoke (The above ingredients are used/measured by eye so the measurements can be adjusted to preference):

  1. Combine 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese in a bowl. Drizzle enough olive oil to lightly moisten the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese mixture. Mix well. Add 1/4 cup shredded Italian blend cheese and 1/4 cup cooked diced Pancetta bacon to the bowl.
  2. Clean and trim the artichoke. Spread open the petals and drizzle just enough balsamic vinegar between the Artichoke petals so it can be absorbed.
  3. Starting with the outside Artichoke petals then working your way towards the center, spoon-fill every possible Artichoke petal with some of the stuffing mix. The more petals you can fill with stuffing the better the eating experience. Once your artichoke petals are filled. sprinkle fresh shredded Italian blend cheese over the top.

To Cook (you can cook as many at a time- that your pot will allow/fit):

  1. In a large steamer pot, steam the stuffed Artichokes in a pot above water on high for 1 hour and 15 mins. The size of the artichokes will dictate how long it will take to cook. After an hour, use your tongs to check the Artichoke for tenderness by either pulling petal off or poking the bottom stem center with a knife. Artichokes are ready if this can be done with ease.
  2. For a crispy cheesy topping on the cooked artichokes, place under the broiler for 2 minutes.

Great recipe! As to the mixed Italian cheese it is a combo of Parmesan, Asiago, Mozzarella and one or two other. I don't like using it as the combo just loses the real Italian taste. Overall this is always a great treat and most people love stuffed Artichokes.
