Deep-fried artichoke hearts. Best when served with grated parmesan cheese. Makes a great finger-food appetizer.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 (15 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and quartered
- 1 1/2 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 2 cups oil for frying, or as needed
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese for topping
Heat oil in a deep-fryer or heavy deep skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place seasoned bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip artichoke hearts in the egg mixture, then roll in bread crumbs until they are fully covered.
Deep-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until deep golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain excess oil. When all the pieces have been fried, place on a serving tray and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
