Stuffed Artichokes

(by MaryAnn Elizabeth)


6 artichokes

12 heaping T. seasoned bread crumbs

1 - 2 T. grated Parmigiano cheese

4 T. chopped fresh parsley

dash of garlic powder

10 T. olive oil, divided

salt and pepper to taste

2 cloves garlic, quartered

Wash and trim artichokes, and turn upside down on towels.

Combine bread crumbs, cheese, parsley, and garlic powder.

Spread leaves of artichokes to loosen, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Put about 2 T. of bread crumb mixture in each artichoke, spreading between leaves.

In a pot large enough to hold the artichokes upright, put 1/2 c. water, 1/4 c. olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic quarters.

Add stuffed artichokes, and drizzle each with 1 T. olive oil.

Cover and cook over low heat for 1 - 2 hours, until outer leaves are tender.

Keep adding water as it evaporates, along with a little more salt and olive oil

Serves 6.
