Stuffed Artichokes

Ingredients:

6 whole artichokes
3 slices of Italian bread, cubed
1 clove Garlic, minced
1/8 cup chopped fresh Parsley
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried Oregano
5 tablespoons Olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper to taste

 

Instructions:

  1. Snip the pointed tips of artichoke leaves, and cut
    off the stems. Wash and drain. Holding artichoke
    firmly by base, firmly rap the top of it on a hard
    surface; this will open it so it can be stuffed.
  2. In a medium bowl combine bread cubes, garlic,
    parsley, Romano cheese, oregano, 2 tablespoons
    vegetable oil, salt and pepper; mix well.
  3. Press about 1/2 cup of stuffing into each
    artichoke. Tightly pack stuffed artichokes together in
    a large heavy saucepan or Dutch oven. Add enough
    water to reach half way up artichokes and add 3
    tablespoons oil.
  4. Bring to a boil over high heat; reduce heat to low
    and simmer, covered, for 1 hour, or until leaves pull
    out easily.
