Ingredients

  • 2 small jars marinated artichoke hearts
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Dash hot pepper sauce or to taste
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Drain the artichokes, reserving 1/3 cup of the marinade. Chop artichokes into small pieces; set aside.
  • In small saucepan over medium heat, heat reserved marinade. Add onion and garlic; cook approximately 5 minutes or until softened and liquid is absorbed (don't let the garlic brown).
  • In large bowl, beat eggs; stir in onion mixture, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, oregano, and hot pepper sauce. Blend in cheddar cheese; stir in artichoke pieces.
  • Spoon mixture into a well-greased non-stick small tart tins or mini muffin tins. NOTE: The tarts can be hard to remove from the tins if not well-greased (even in non-stick tins). Bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until set. Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack before removing from the pans. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Let come to room temperature before serving.

Notes

NOTE: The tarts can be hard to remove from the tins if not well-greased (even in non-stick tins).
