I’ve enjoyed cooking all my life, and most of my endeavors are Italian. With a zippy marinara sauce for dipping, these golden, breaded artichoke quarters make a unique and popular appetizer. —Anthony Greco, Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 6 large artichokes
  • SAUCE:
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (16 ounces) crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • FOR COOKING:
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Directions

Using a sharp knife, level the bottom of each artichoke and cut 1 in. from the tops. Using kitchen scissors, snip off tips of outer leaves. Place artichokes in a large saucepan; add 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30-35 minutes or until leaves in the center pull out easily.
Invert artichokes to drain for 10 minutes. With a spoon, carefully remove the fuzzy centers and discard. Cut artichoke hearts into fourths.
In a large saucepan, saute onion in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add remaining sauce ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened.
In a shallow bowl, whisk egg and milk. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese, parsley and pepper in another shallow bowl. Dip artichoke pieces in egg mixture, then coat with crumbs. In a large skillet, cook artichokes in oil for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve immediately with sauce. Yield: 2 dozen (2 cups sauce).
