Panko Crusted Fried Artichoke Heart Appetizer Recipe

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

If you love artichokes, then you are in for a treat..
 we love these dipped in pizza sauce but they are great plain too!

1 can drained artichoke hearts
1/4 cup Romano grating cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups or more of Panko Italian flavored breadcrumbs
salt, pepper to taste,
optional: pinch of cayenne pepper
2 egg whites beaten
2 ziplock bags
Canola oil for frying

Beat egg whites in a pie plate set aside. Place 2 cups of bread crumbs, cheese, garlic powder and seasonings in a ziplock bag.  In another ziplock bag,  add 1/2 cup flour. Shake the artichokes into flour bag first.  Dip artichokes into egg whites then shake into the panko bread crumb mixture ziplock bag next. Heat at least 2 inches of oil in a large fry pan. When hot deep fry artichokes until golden brown. These taste best while hot sprinkled with more Romano cheese.

Note: I have also baked these on a parchment lined cookie sheet on 400 degree hot oven drizzled with olive oil for a healthier version.


  1. I love artichokes. They look very appetizing with flavored breadcrumbs. Bye, have a good day

  2. Sounds like a great appetizer to me. I've never tried fried ravioli but that sounds awesome as well.

  3. che buono Claudia! This looks so crispy. Perfect for an aperitivo!

  4. I love fried artichokes but have never made them. Using Panko makes everything taste that much better. I'm sure these ate wonderful.

  5. Caludia I have never had fried artichokes. I do love artichokes though. This looks divine. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things hop. Wishing you a happy weekend. xo
