I’ve been wanting to share these artichoke squares with you for some time now…

I made my first batch last month for the nutrition talk I gave at SiSi and Big Tex’s school, and I thought I might have had some leftovers to share with you.

No such luck.

They were devoured almost immediately.

Poor Mr. Spicy didn’t even get to try any of the last batch, because SiSi ate the few squares I did have leftover for a snack…

I tell you, that girl is ALWAYS hungry 🙂

I got the idea for the recipe from my {somewhat} fuzzy high school memories.  Back “then” my friends and I had a “Gourmet Club” and we took turns cooking dinner at each others’ houses.  I do recall a little fire incident at my friend’s house that ALMOST got out of control…

But it didn’t.

I also vaguely remember making artichoke squares for one of our dinners, but I have no recollection of where I got the recipe from.

What I do remember,  very clearly, is that the artichoke squares were amazingly addictive!

So I searched the Internet and found a similar version to what I had in my mind from Razzle Dazzle Recipes.

I wish I could tell you that I steamed these big beautiful artichokes and saved their hearts for the recipe…

Fresh Artichokes

But I didn’t.

I used canned/jarred artichoke hearts.

Shh…

Please don’t tell.

They’re still REALLY good!

And, the great thing about these artichoke squares is that they can be eaten for breakfast, brunch, lunch, snack, or dinner…

They can be served as appetizers…

They are delicious hot or cold…

In other words, they’re SUPER versatile. Feel free to get creative and add your own favorite cheese. Skip the bread crumbs if you like. Don’t have any artichokes on hand? Add broccoli, kale, or any other veggies you might need to use up before they go bad.

Whatever you make these artichoke squares with, I promise you, you’re going to love them!

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 9 entree size squares

Ingredients

  • 2 6- ounce jars artichoke hearts marinated in oil {mine were marinated in water}
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil {Optional if NOT using heart marinated in oil}
  • 1 small yellow onion, finely chopped { I used a Vidalia onion which added a nice touch of sweetness}
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup gluten free bread crumbs {or regular if not on a gluten free diet}
  • 1/8 teaspoon each black pepper and dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot red pepper sauce, if desired
  • 8 ounces, or 2 cups cheese {I used a combo of cheddar and Swiss}

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Drain artichoke hearts and chop fine. If using hearts marinated in oil, reserve 2 tablespoons of the oil.
  • Heat the 2 tablespoons of the reserved oil OR 2 tablespoon of olive oil, in a small skillet over moderate heat. Add the onion and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until soft-about 5 minutes. Add the chopped artichoke hearts and saute with onion and garlic for an additional minute. Remove from heat and cool for about 5 minutes.
  • In a medium bowl, beat the eggs until frothy. Stir in the breadcrumbs, seasonings, cheese, and artichoke, onion, garlic mixture. Pour into greased 9 X 9 baking pan.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 10 minutes, then cut in to 9 3-inch squares {if serving as a main course} or 27 1-inch squares {if serving as an appetizer}. Will keep, tightly covered and refrigerated for up to 3 days.

Notes

They can be wrapped in heavy duty foil and frozen for up to one month. I haven’t tried this, but next time I make them I will bake up a few batches and freeze them for one of those last minute, “What’s for dinner? I have nothing in the house!” evenings.
