Baked artichoke hearts with seasoned breadcrumbs is the easy side dish I make when I’m craving stuffed artichokes but don’t have the time to make them.  Canned artichoke hearts are topped with a mixture of white wine, garlic, lemon, parsley, and breadcrumbs and baked until golden.  Best served alongside chicken, or pork, baked artichoke hearts also make a fantastic Thanksgiving side that everyone loves!

I just love artichokes.

Growing up, my grandmother would often make classic stuffed artichokes or fried artichoke hearts, but when she needed to hit the easy button, she would make baked artichoke hearts with breadcrumbs.

And I too have adopted this as a simple side dish that my family loves.  

I make this often, especially during the week when time is less abundant.  I’ll serve it alongside some grilled chicken thighs, chicken cutlets, or even stuffed pork loin

Baked artichoke hearts are also a perfect Thanksgiving side dish because it’s easy, full of flavor, and even the pickiest guests will eat them.

No matter when these are served, there is always one thing that is certain – there are never any leftovers because they are really that good!

Canned or frozen artichoke hearts?

Having made this recipe using both types of artichoke hearts, I can share that I prefer the canned hearts.

While both types have their own benefits, I find that the texture of the canned version holds up better for baked artichoke hearts.

The frozen can be mushy and require more prep.

For example, if you are using frozen artichoke hearts, you’ll need to make sure that they are defrosted and dried before using them for this recipe.

Canned artichokes should be rinsed of their solution, and dried, but there is no defrost time needed.

I also like the fact that canned artichoke hearts are shelf-stable, leaving the room in my freezer for other things, like gelato or pizza dough.

I also used canned artichoke hearts in my recipe for pasta with artichokes and breadcrumbs.

Variations

One of the things I love most about cooking, is the ability to make a dish your own simply by adding a few other ingredients.

Some of my favorite additions, or variations of baked artichoke hearts include:

  • Pignoli aka Pine nuts – Lightly toasted pignoli complement the flavors in this dish perfectly.
  • Raisins – Raisins add sweetness and a Sicilian vibe to this dish.
  • Olives – Adding some black olives would give this additional Mediterranean flavor.
  • Sun dried tomatoes – Chopped sun dried tomatoes would add depth of flavor, and texture.
  • Lemon zest – I did not include zest in my recipe, just lemon juice, but if you love lemon, adding zest would be a great addition.

Canned artichoke hearts are topped with a garlic-lemon-white wine-breadcrumb mixture and baked until golden.

Ingredients 

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 14 ounce cans artichoke hearts rinsed and drained
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

For seasoned breadcrumbs

  • 1/2 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup Parmigiano Reggiano grated
  • 1/4 cup parsley minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine pinot grigio, sauvignon blanc, etc...

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375f and set to middle rack. Mix seasoned breadcrumbs ingredients together and set aside.
  • Mix the minced garlic and olive oil together in a bowl. Spoon half of the garlic oil into a large baking dish and spread it around to evenly distribute.
  • Next, place the artichoke hearts into the baking dish and top them with the remaining garlic oil. Sprinkle the hot red pepper all over the hearts.
  • Evenly sprinkle the seasoned breadcrumbs and bake for 15-20 minutes or until hot all the way through and the breadcrumbs have browned. For more color, the artichoke hearts can be broiled for the last 45-60 seconds but watch carefully. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Canned artichoke hearts are preferred, but frozen can also be used.  If using frozen make sure they are completely defrosted, drained, and dried before using.
  • For added browning, broil right at the end.  Watch carefully because the breadcrumbs can burn quickly.
  • Leftovers can be saved for up to 3 days and can be reheated in the oven at 325f until warm or in the microwave.

  1. Can’t wait to make this as it sounds delicious! Thank you for an easy side dish to add to my recipe list!

  2. 5 stars
    This is one tasty casserole. I left out the red pepper flakes, because my daughter can’t handle the heat. I used seasoned panko crumbs with bread crumbs. It gave the dish a smoother finish. I incorporated Fontina cheese with the Parm. I love the way it melts. This casserole was easy and delicious.
