  • “My, my, what a wonderful mouthful of flavors!!!Artichokes and garlic are wonderful together.I did not change the recipe at all.We are not Sunday nite dinner eaters, just bites or appetizers.This dish was just perfect.We loved the flavors, and so easy to make, and was very satisfying.Thanks Miller for posting this one!”

  • “I can’t believe I forgot to rate this recipe!! I’m so sorry! I love artichoke hearts and made this recipe with them.My family fell in love with these, and so did I.Like other people I did saute my hearts in garlic butter but instead just poured it on top of the hot hearts.They were fabulous.Thanks Miller for such an easy yet great recipe!! :D”

  • “I always fine large jars of artichoke hearts and wonder what I can make with them? So I found your recipe.I didn’t have regular bread crumbs so I substudited cornflake crumbs instead. I dipped artichoke heart into egg first. Then into dry ingrent’s: garlic salt, grated asiago or any hard cheese grated is fine,pepper, and/or what ever seasons fancy your buds. then i sauted/fryed in oil till lightly browned. i then place on a cookie sheet and continued to bake them so they we more crunchy so they could be eaten with fingers. my kids at these up so fast that i didn’t have any left to serve to our guest…also a little lemon squeezed over them after would be a good touch. i didn’t have any on hand but will do it next time.thank you lauri from Cleveland”

  • “We would like to make this another time before rating it.We think it has potential, but a couple of things just didn’t go right for us.First, we don’t think we rinsed enough of the brine off, because they were very sharp tasting.Second, they didn’t seem to coat well.It was more like a stuffing than a breading.The taste of the breading was good, but with the sharpness of the artichoke, we just dind’t eat many.We’ll try again though, and hopefully do better!”

  • “Great appetizer!And so easy!I too just drizzled the garlic butter over them.I did have some left over, and the next evening I heated them up in the oven and melted a piece of provolone on each –Mmmmmmmmmmm.Thanks for sharing a great recipe!–Marla”

  • “Best artichoke appetizer I’ve tried so far, and I’ve been trying a lot lately.Such a refreshing change from the dip recipes!I also didn’t sauté the chokes after frying – and I didn’t have unsalted butter, and I used quartered chokes, might do smaller next time because I just love the flavor.Very yummy, simple, and unique.”

  • “I made this for an “emergency” snack tonight and they were superb.I didn’t bother to saute the hearts, just poured the butter with garlic that I’d microwaved over them. “

  • “this was okay, i think the smaller you can cut the hearts and still handle them the better, “
