Artichokes Au Gratin

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min.


4-6 servings

This makes a great side dish for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any dinner. My niece served this at a family gathering and was kind enough to share the recipe.


  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) water-packed artichoke hearts, rinsed, drained and quartered
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese, divided
  • 1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a small skillet, saute artichokes and garlic in 2 tablespoons butter until tender. Transfer to a greased 1-qt. baking dish.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt remaining butter. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until smooth. Gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg; return all to pan, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese until melted.
  3. Pour over artichokes; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Combine crumbs and paprika; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until heated through.

    REAL GOOD! There is so much sauce, you could easily use three cans of artichokes.
