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 artichoke hearts drained

1/4 cup Romano grated cheese

1 teaspoon garlic powder

2 cups or more of Panko Italian flavored breadcrumbs

salt, pepper to taste,

optional: a 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.
