What Main Course Dishes Go Well With This Artichoke Casserole?
We love artichokes so much, we eat them as often as we can, especially around the holidays. Making our Stuffed Artichoke Recipe is always something we look forward to around the holidays or for dinner parties. But artichokes can be as simple as a steamed artichoke with an aioli dipping sauce.
There’s many main course dishes that go well with artichokes, but we’ll list a few of those here for you!
How To Make Stuffed Artichoke Casserole
- Thaw two boxes of frozen artichoke hearts and then place them into a 2 quart, buttered baking dish.
- Make the sauce by blending softened cream cheese, heavy cream, fresh garlic, salt, pepper and parsley to a bowl.
- Pour the sauce over the artichokes in an even layer. You can toss the artichoke hearts, but the sauce will melt and distribute evenly into the casserole as it bakes.
- Toss panko breadcrumbs with melted butter and spread the breadcrumbs all over the top of the casserole in an even layer. Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese on top and bake.
Can You Make This Casserole Recipe Ahead Of Time?
Yes, you absolutely can. Make this entire stuffed artichoke casserole ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake. Remove the casserole from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking to take the chill off the dish.
Bake until the breadcrumbs on top are browned and the casserole is bubbling. To brown the breadcrumbs even further, place the casserole under the broiler for 2-3 minutes.
Can You Use Canned Artichoke Hearts For This Recipe?
Yes, you definitely can. We prefer using frozen artichokes because they don’t have that “tinny” flavor that sometimes comes from using canned vegetables.
If you do use canned artichoke hearts, make sure they aren’t marinated or packed in oil. Buy plain artichoke hearts packed in water, then be sure to rinse them before using.
