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
- 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
- *******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!!!
