Several friends have texted me to ask if I had any new appetizer recipes. When I went back through some recipes that I have used in the past, I came across this one. In the 90’s I belonged to a women’s club, called Northwood Womans Club in Dallas. We began each year with a “tea” for new members of which the members who are joined the year before was in charge of planning and executing this wonderful afternoon of great desserts and appetizers. Now why did I list desserts first….hum….tells me a little of why I cannot fit in those size 12 pants anymore. Back to the story. This recipe was made and was an instant hit.
2 small jars (61/4 oz) marinated artichokes
1 small onion, chopped very fine
1 clove garlic, mashed
4 eggs, beaten with a fork
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teas pepper
1/8 teas oregano
2 teas parsley flakes, or chopped fresh parsley
1/8 teas Tabasco
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
Drain 1 jar of the artichokes-drain the oil from 2nd jar into frying pan.
Saute onion and garlic in oil
Chop artichokes very fine (use blender if necessary)
Combine all ingredients and pour into a 9×9 pyrex pan which you have sprayed with Pam
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 min or until mixture is set firmly and lightly brown.
May be frozen and reheated. Cut in squares and place on serving platter.
