Ingredients

  • 2 large artichokes
  • 1/2 cup soft bread crumbs, toasted
  • 2 ounces smoked Gouda cheese, shredded (about 1/2 cup)
  • 4 slices Canadian bacon, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Using a sharp knife, level the bottom of each artichoke and cut 1 in. from the top. Using kitchen scissors, snip off tips of outer leaves. Place in a steamer basket; place in a large saucepan over 1 in. of water. Bring to a boil; cover and steam for 20-25 minutes or until leaves near the center pull out easily.
With a spoon, carefully scrape out the fuzzy center portions of artichokes and discard.
In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cheese, bacon and pepper. Add oil; mix well. Gently spread artichoke leaves apart; fill with bread crumb mixture.
Place in a greased 8-in. square baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until filling is lightly browned. Yield: 2-4 servings.
