This is the way Grandma made them, I prefer them to any I've ever had in a restaurant. Be sure to use freshly grated cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut off stems of artichokes so they will sit level. Cut off ends so that top is flat. Spread leaves and clean inside.
  2. Mix bread crumbs, cheese, garlic powder and parsley in bowl. Stuff artichokes with mixture, making sure to get some into the outer leaves.
  3. Place artichokes in a large pot. Fill with water about halfway up to the top of the artichokes.
  4. Pour 1 tsp olive oil over top of each artichoke.
  5. Cook covered over medium heat until tender, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting occasionally with the water. If needed, add more water during cooking.

Delicious! Used about half the oil and cheese to lighten it a bit. Also added quite a lot of lemon juice. To save on time, I pressure cooked these -- for about 15 minutes (in the pressure cooker basket). These would be perfect for Thanksgiving!
