"My mother-in-law gave me the recipe for these cheesy appetizers when I married her son 5 years ago, and I've been making them for special occasions ever since," relates Karen Brown of Trenton, Michigan.

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 jars (6-1/2 ounces each) marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup crushed saltines (about 10 crackers)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°. In a small skillet, saute onion and garlic in oil until tender. Stir in artichokes. Remove from the heat; set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, oregano and hot pepper sauce. Stir in the cheese, cracker crumbs and artichoke mixture.
  2. Pour into a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, until a thermometer reads 160°, 25-30 minutes. Cool for 10-15 minutes before cutting. Serve warm.
