Roasted Parmesan Artichokes Appetizer

Roasted Parmesan Artichokes Appetizer-Easy to Make!

January 19, 2024

Once again I put my Kraft Food & Family Magazine to good use! This Roasted Parmesan Artichokes Appetizer recipe needed slight modification to be it a Bariatric Friendly appetizer, primarily omitting breadcrumbs for more shredded parmesan cheese.

This recipe is so simple and the ingredients can be kept on hand for an “in a pinch” situation or when you’re looking for something different to go with your main protein source. The original recipe called for two cans of artichoke hearts. I made a smaller version and used just one jar for smaller portions.

The full recipe is below but I simply drained this jar and spread the contents in a shallow baking dish. Then I combine these ingredients in a separate bowl.

I spread the Parmesan cheese mixture over the artichoke and baked at 425F for 30 minutes. Be sure to let them cool because they will be very hot AND I found the flavor to be even better when they had cooled a bit.

You are going to love this recipe! Not only is this an easy to make and tastes delicious, it is also low carb and perfect after Gastric Sleeve, Bypass, Band or Duodenal Switch surgery!
