If you haven’t tried French food, you are missing out. There is this amazing little restaurant about 40 minutes from us called Grand Finale (if you live anywhere near it, definitely go). I had the pleasure of having lunch there during the Stampaway Convention in August. As it turns out, however, my favorite escargot appetizer is not available for during lunch hours so I was forced to pick a new one.

What a happy twist of fate because their parmesan artichoke hearts are phenomenal! Even better, artichoke hearts are so much cheaper than snails (though totally worth the occasional splurge). As soon as I tasted this I knew I wanted to try to make it at home. I’m so excited for you because I did it! This dish is delicious and even though it’s not dead on it is so close that it is totally worth making. Did I mention how easy it is? 35 minutes to make including hands-on prep time and only 4 ingredients.
- Frozen 12oz Bag of Artichoke Hearts
- ¼ Cup of Butter
- 1 tsp of Garlic Pepper
- Parmesan Cheese
Pre-heat oven to 400ﹾ.
Thaw artichoke hearts. Next strain and pat dry, then place in glass bakeware. (I used Pyrex.)
Melt butter and wisk together with garlic pepper. Once mixed, pour over artichoke hearts.
Sprinkle generously with parmesan cheese and bake for 30 minutes.
