Grilled Artichokes on Olive Motif Glass Platter

Grilled Artichokes at Brunch on Sunday. Delicious. I was a fortunate guest.   Here is one recipe.  I love the pattern of the leaves.  My mother never prepared an artichoke in her kitchen.  When I was a young wife, everyone made hot artichoke dip, using artichoke hearts, drained from a can or a jar and adding a ton of mayo and parmesan cheese, probably from the green can.  Spread on a cracker. I liked it at the time.  Erika’s Aunt Georgann makes them a tasty rich way with stuffing at Christmas.  Artichokes are part of the thistle family and some varieties have thorns.

  1. Such a beautiful presentation on that platter. The local Mom and Pop’s Italian place prepares a wonderful pasta with artichokes that I can not resist. Everything in moderation?

  2. Love it! Every time I ask if I can bring something, the chorus goes up, “Bring your artichoke dip!” I do use Light Hellman’s.

  3. yum yum. Cheesecake Factory has a lot of Artichoke dishes. One is a fire roasted artichoke appetizer. Aunt Georgeann makes a lot of yummy dishes
