Well here it is! My Mom's recipe for fried artichokes. Her recommendation for choosing artichokes is always pick small ones no larger than your fist. The larger ones tend to be less tender and have a lot of choke to remove. I also think the trick to her fried artichokes is the corn oil she uses. I hope you enjoy them. Whenever my Mom made these as a kid, my sister and I had fried artichoke sandwiches. Place fried arichokes on crusty Italian bread with fresh mozzarella! Yummy! A little different than PB&J! I hope you enjoy it!

How to Make Ciao Bella Fried Artichokes

Step-by-Step

  1. Remove tough outer layers of artichoke leaves to reveal tender center. Leaves should be lighter in color. Cut top half of artichoke off, almost half way down. Remove choke if necessary. Trim stem and peel outer layer.
  2. Cut each artichoke "heart" vertically into 4-5 slices. Place slices in a bowl of water with half a lemon squeezed in to prevent browning.
  3. Preheat about an inch of oil in a large skillet, about 350 degrees.
  4. Now make a dipping station. Place flour in one dish or bowl. Combine eggs,parmesan cheese,onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in another dish or bowl.
  5. Remove artichokes from water and dry thoroughly. Dip in flour, remove excess. Dip in egg mixture and fry in oil for about 5-7 minutes per side or until golden brown and tender. Place on paper towels to remove excess oil. Serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy!
