  • Place artichoke heart halves on the prepared baking sheet, cut side up. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, and drizzle with olive oil.

  • Broil artichoke hearts until browned on top, about 7 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.

I must admit, I'm not always a fan of Chef John's recipes, but I cannot sing the praises enough on this one. I have made these several times, ever since the video for them was featured well over a year ago. I never knew there was a printed recipe for them! As this recipe's first reviewer I highly recommend them, particularly if you love artichokes as much as I do. (When I was a little girl Santa used to put a jar of marinated artichokes in my Christmas stocking!) The directions are helpful (especially the draining part) and the ingredients spot on. Canned artichokes make these super easy and they can easily be assembled in advance to pop in the oven just before serving. Ever since I discovered these, my array of appetizers would not be complete without them. Read More

These were very good!! I was skeptical but they were yummy. The amount of cheese bread crumb topping seemed like a lot when i added it on but it turned out perfect. I used butter instead of olive oil and had no lemon so i just put a little bit of lemon pepper on Read More

We loved this! I didn't put as much breadcrumbs or cheese as suggested just to try and cut a bit of calories, and it was still fantastic. I did use an Italian blend of cheeses. A real keeper! Read More

Made this for a dinner party and everyone (except my husband who doesn't like artichokes) loved it. Will make it again for a party or something. Anything. ;) Read More

Tasty and simple! I did use my own hot pepper and garlic infused olive oil which added depth of flavor. Next time I may add minced garlic and top with Asiago cheese. Read More
