  • Wrap each artichoke heart with a piece of bacon. Secure by threading a toothpick through the end of the bacon.

  • Fry bacon-wrapped artichoke hearts in the hot oil until bacon is browned and crispy, 7 to 9 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate for about 5 minutes before serving.

Tips

Cook's Note:

I have used regular vegetable oil to make them before but it was never as good as using peanut oil.

These were tasty! I only had canola oil so I used that but to be fair the recipe submitter says they taste way better when frying them in peanut oil which I had none of so I just went w/ what I had and they were fine. I only had a few artichokes to use up so I made a small batch. These would be wonderful w/ some sort of dipping sauce. I plan to try these again using peanut oil to fry and making a sauce for dipping. Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

These were amazing! Very flavorful. I didn't have a deep fryer but I heated up the peanut oil in a pot and dipped them in for a few minutes until the bacon looked crisp. They came out perfect! Will be making these again. Read More
