Artichoke Tart


2 – 6 ounce jars Marinated artichoke hearts
1 cup Yellow onion, minced
1 /4 cup Red pepper, finely diced
1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
1 /8 tsp Thyme
1 /8 tsp Oregano

4 eggs
1 tsp Creole mustard
1 tsp Creole seasoning
1 /2 cup Japanese bread crumbs
1 /4 tsp Hot sauce
1 /2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp Black pepper, freshly ground
1 /4 cup Green onion, minced


Preheat oven to 325.

Drain artichokes reserving two tablespoons of the marinating liquid.

Place the two tablespoons of liquid in a small sauté pan over medium heat. Add onions and red pepper and cook three to four minutes. Add garlic, oregano, and thyme, and cook two to three minutes more. Remove from heat and cool.

Rough chop artichokes. Whip the eggs and mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Spread the mixture into a 9” buttered pie pan. Bake 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool to room temperature. Cut into 16 wedges and serve.

Yield: 16 small portions, or eight large portions
