Deep Fried Artichoke Hearts

I'm not much of a deep fried person but these were advertised at stands all over my roadtrip through artichoke country in Northern California and I just had to try them! So glad I did!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thaw the artichoke hearts.
  2. Place flour in a bowl and add egg yolks, nutmeg and salt, pepper and tabasco to taste. Gradually beat in 1 cup milk. Stir in baking powder. Coat artichokes in batter. Adjust the consistancy with the extra milk if needed.
  3. Drop the artichokes one at a time into oil (deep enough to cover artichokes), heated to 360 degrees. Cook, turning, until golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
  4. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce (I like ranch or flavored mayo)!

Pretty good! Only thing I did different was sprinkle grated parmesan to the batter to add cheesiness- just a personal preference though :-)
