Artichoke Pie

This is a picture of an apple pie, but you get the idea

This is one of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes. How bazar and I can not believe I have not posted this yet.

INGREDIENTS:

9 inch pie shell top and bottom

1 package frozen or canned artichokes

4 eggs

1/8 teaspoon garlic powder or chopped garlic

3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

8 oz. package mozzarella cheese

salt, pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cut artichokes in half, brown in a pan with a little olive oil, add garlic and set aside.  Beat eggs in a large bowl and then add all other ingredients.  Fold in artichokes hearts.  Pour into pie shell. Cover with top crust and pinch together sides. Add slits to the top crust with a pairing knife and brush with milk.  Bake at 350 for one hour.

Cut into wedges and serve warm. Makes and excellent first course or appetizer and pairs nicely with a wine wine like a Pinto Grigio.

NOTES: This is a favorite recipe for Thanksgiving and so portable to bring to someone’s house. So easy to make.
