    These are SERIOUSLY addictive! I learned these from a woman from Calabria Italy. She is an amazing cook! So worth all the work.

      I love artichokes but this was my first taste of baby artichokes. OMG! I loved them. I made them exactly as instructed and they were great. The bread crumbs at the end give them a nice little crunch. They also have no choke so when you have eaten them down a little you are home free! I had them with a little miracle whip.

      Just made this today. I had a bunch of baby artichokes and it was great. Not as good as stuffed artichokes, but in a pinch it did fine.

      Generally speaking, artichokes ARE worth the time & energy & these are NO exception! I saved the cooking oil in a gkass jar to use in another recipe. Please remember to eat the garlic! It is soft, caramelized and OMG, delicious! I had 10 baby artichokes for 4 people & it wasn't nearly enough. I don't see how 12 will serve 5??? Thanks for the yummy recipe!
