    Default What to do with canned artichokes?

    I found 3 14oz. cans of artichoke hearts in my pantry. Not the marinated kind, these are just canned in brine. I think I bought them with the intention of making artichoke/spinach dip for the holidays, but never got around to it, and now theres no occasion to make the dip for. Any tried and true recipe ideas for how I can use them up?

    I was going to say..."the artichoke spinach dip". You could still make it. Since I am the only one who eats it, I make it, put it in small containers and freeze it. Then I get out a small portion when I crave it. But, sorry, I can't help you, I normally don't care for artichokes.

    You Can Make An Artichoke And Fresh Mushroom Salad. Drain And Cut Artichokes In Half Put In Bowl. Coat Lightly With Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add Fresh Mushrooms Sliced In Half. Mix To Coat. Season With Garlic Salt, And Fresh Black Pepper. Add Juice Of One Fresh Lemon. Mix Well. Let Marinate. Serve Over Romaine Lettuce Leaves. Or Make An Artichoke Quiche, With Ham Or Bacon And Swiss Cheese,or Artichoke Fritters Dip Halves In Flour, Egg, Bread Crumbs(flavored With Gr Cheese And Garlic Pwd) Amd Deep Fry. Also Make A Very Hot Marinara Sauce, First Saute The Artichokes In Garlic And Oil. Add Marinara Sauce, Pour Over Linguine.

    Two things come to mind.
    1. Baked Artichoke Dip, very easy
    1 cup artichokes chopped
    1 cup good mayo
    1 cup mozzarella cheese
    1 cup Parmesan cheese

    mix, put in pie pan and bake for about 30 minutes @ 350

    2. Lemon Artichokes, this is my favorite
    I do not have measurements because I just throw it together. I take the drained artichokes, put in a glass microwave bowl, then add a little chicken broth, lemon juice, dill and a dab of butter and microwave it for about 3 to 5 minutes. I serve it with chicken as a side dish.

    Thanks for all the ideas. Now if I try all of these that I want to try, I'll have to go out and buy more artichokes LOL

    Slice in half, drain and pat dry. Flour, egg and crumb (I like panko) and fry in oil (peanut is good as you get a nice clean taste) at 350-375 until brown and crispy. Add Italian seasoning to the bread crumbs if you like. A dipping sauce of marinara or mayo based with cayenne is pretty darn good.

    1/2 lb mushrooms, sliced
    1 tsp miced garlic
    1 onion, chopped
    2 boxes (10oz each) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and dqueezed dry
    1 can (14.5oz) artichokes, drained and coarsely chopped
    1 tbsp all-purpose flour
    1-1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

    1. In a large bowl, whisk egg beaters, milk and mustard (add salt and pepper to taste); set aside.
    2. Place half the bread slices in a 13x9 baking dish coated with non stick cooking spray.
    3. in a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute mushrooms, garlic and onions until tender. Add spinach, artichokes and flour; mix well. Salt and pepper toa taste.
