Momma's Artichoke Hearts and Mushroom Bake

"If it's a stuffed artichoke, it must be Christmas! I remember the traditional holiday menu called for stuffed artichokes. Preparation was an ordeal so, as Momma grew in years and wisdom, she came up with this alternative. (it's easier to eat too) Between you and me, it tastes even better when it rests, so don't be afraid to assemble it ahead of time. It's a great vegetable casserole on its own; a vegetarian's delight. Easy to do and a real crowd pleaser ... enjoy!"

  1. this just didn't do it for us. I followed the directions exactly and was very disapointed. will not be making this again.
  2. I did not have seasoned breadcrumbs, so added some thyme, which I think works very well with mushrooms. Leftovers went into an awesome omelet the next morning.Definitely better the second day.
  3. This was a really great side dish! I used a 50/50 mixture of regular and seasoned bread crumbs and baby portabellas for the mushrooms! I would also recommend making this dish a day in advance since it really does taste better as it sits!
  4. This was so tasty!! I used a mixture of wild mushrooms sauteed with onions that my husband had made from a Fine Cooking recipe. My vegetarian guests gobbled it up, as did the carnivores in the crowd. Very easy to make, too.
  5. This was very good! I served this as a side dish for our Christmas dinner. Everyone loved it! I followed the directions exactly and wouldn't change a thing!


I'm a "newbee" to this site, but not to cooking. I love great food and to share recipes and this site is great! I don't know where the information of a "fry cook" came from, but I would consider myself anything else but that :) A NYC girl originally, lived in London and Canada where I am now. Met lots of interesting people along life's way who taught me a great deal and enriched my life with their knowledge of cooking. With my children now adults, the family has doubled in size and my commitment to making memories to pass down to another generation inspires me to cooking. I find cooking a creative expression of one's personality and never tire of new challenges in the kitchen.
