Directions

  2. Invert artichokes to drain for 10 minutes. With a spoon, carefully remove the fuzzy centers and discard. Cut artichoke hearts into fourths.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
