If I am being quite honest, I am not the biggest artichoke fan. I find it annoying that you have this giant vegetable and can only eat a tiny bit off of the leaf. BUT artichoke hearts are a complete game changer. They have great flavor, you can eat the whole thing and they have a bit of a meaty-like feel to them.

Canned artichoke hearts are easy to find in most grocery stores. Just look by the rest of the canned goods. Make sure for this recipe to only use canned artichoke hearts in water or the brine. Not the ones that come in oil because the oil will make the breading slide off.

The other component for this dish is the aioli. This dipping sauce is very easy to make you just need a few ingredients and it adds a nice creamy addition to the whole dish. I think this also goes great with a bit of lemon juice. These are definitely a very fun appetizer or snack.

  1. **********Hi, Francesca, ten stars! I saw this recipe today and had to try it. I had a very delicious dinner with so little effort. I’m already dreaming of other foods to try under this yummy topping. I have some dreamy creamy Marcella white beans from Rancho Gordo that I think would be great prepared this way. Thanks for an inventive meal that I will be putting in regular rotation. PS I had some pine nuts it was time to use up, so when the bread crumbs were almost toasted, I cleared a circle in the pan and toasted them. OMG, soooo good.
