How to make it

  • Soak Italian bread in warm water, then squeeze out excess water and set aside
  • Cook sausage or pancetta till cooked and then crumble
  • Using scissors, cut prickly points off the artichokes
  • Cut stem, leaving enough for the artichoke to be able to stand up straight without falling over (save stems)
  • Boil artichokes in salted water for about 10 minutes, drain & cool
  • Take stems, peel them and chop them up to use in stuffing
  • Meanwhile:
  • In large bowl, add bread, eggs, garlic, parmesan cheese, and seasonings plus chopped stems and pancetta or sausage.
  • Mix well, if too loose, add bread crumbs, or if too dry add milk
  • Take artichoke and push down on them, to open up center, remove some inner leaves that are prickly
  • Sprinkle the inside with salt, parmesan cheese and a little mozzerella cheese
  • Taking handful , stuff artichoke with stuffing and place in a large dutch oven*****
  • When done, add about 2 cups water in pan with about 1-1/2 cup olive oil and about 5 sliced garlic cloves.
  • Season each artichoke with salt, pepper, garlic powder, parmesan cheese and add mozzerella to top of each artichoke.
  • Pour olive oil over each artichoke to keep moist
  • Cover and bring to boil
  • Turn heat down to medium low to low and cook 2 hours, check to be sure water & olive oil are not burning off, if so add more of each
  • Enjoy!!!!
  • *******If you want to take the time, you can stuff each leaf, but that takes a lot of time, but it does taste good as you get stuffing with each leaf!!!

    This looks fabulous. When I was twelve, my step-mom was a waitress, and she brought an steamed artichoke out for my brother and I to eat, but didn't stick around to tell us HOW to eat it. So, we ate the ENTIRE leaf. When I went to California some many years later, I ate them the same way, and the group of company I was in had a good laugh at that. Now that I know how to eat them, they are delicious! Especially stuffed. Thanks for sharing!

    This looks awesome. My mom would make stuffed artichokes when I was a kid, but I have yet to try in my own kitchen. Thanks for the idea!

    This is funny. I was about to post my recipe for stuffed artichokes when I decided to search for them on this site before doing so and I came across your recipe and decided not to bother posting mine. Yours blows mine away. I'll use this as a replacement to mine and I'll leave the posting of it up to you! Thanks.

    This looks really good! Bookmarking it!
    We have artichokes almost year round here, and they are big, but they cost an arm and a leg...particularly this past year. Carpenteria is the 'artichoke capital' of the world and has a festival every year...hope to make it there one day!

    I so love these things, but have been too intimidated to make them. I think your recipe makes is "explainable" for me, and I will most definitely give this a youngest daughter absolutely adores these, so she would be so happy if I could make them!!
