Artichoke Appetizer

When it comes to appetizers, I usually get my best recipes from friends and relatives at parties and get-togethers when I can't stop eating a particular dish.  This is no exception.  This recipe, which has been passed around my neighborhood, has been just as big of a hit with my family when I've made it for them.  People just can't stop eating it. And they always want the recipe.

  • large jar of artichoke hearts marinated in oil (33 oz jar found at Costco)
  • 3 Tbs lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes
  1. Preheat oven to 350.  Drain artichokes; cut any large pieces in half or in thirds, but do not chop.
  2. Combine ingredients, reserving the red pepper to sprinkle on top.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly.  Serve with pieces of crusty bread.
I mixed the ingredients in the casserole dish...made it easier, but didn't make for a great picture due to the sloppiness on the sides.  Sorry!

Difficulty: easy
Time: 5 minutes prep; 20-25 minutes baking

  1. I love artichokes!!! I could eat them straight out of the jar LOL. I was looking for some kind of casserole or bake to make with them and this is perfect! Going to try this tomorrow.
