Gratinee Of Artichoke
What You Need:
  • 6 small artichokes
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (optional)
  • ½ cup dried bread crumbs
  • 1½ tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon or cube of chicken bouillon concentrate
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • 1½ cups milk or light cream
  • 1/3 cup grated Swiss cheese

  • How To Cook:
    1. Remove the tough outer leaves from the artichoke. Cut off the stem end, flush with the bottom of the choke. Put the artichokes, water, lemon juice and garlic in a covered casserole.

    2. Cook 10 to 15 minutes in the microwave oven or until a fork stuck in the bottom of the choke indicates the artichokes are tender. Let stand 10 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, put the bread crumbs and the 1½ tablespoons of butter in a small dish and cook in the microwave oven until golden brown, stirring often to prevent overcooking and burning in spots. (This should take only 2 to 3 minutes.) Set aside.

    4. Cut the artichokes in two, lengthwise. Cut off the upper 1/3 of the leaf area. Place the artichokes in a circle around the outer edge of a casserole. Fill in the center area with the small pieces. Set aside.

    5. Melt the 2 tablespoons butter in a 1-quart casserole. Stir in the flour, bouillon concentrate, salt and pepper. (The bouillon concentrate may need softening in a few spoonfuls of hot water.)

    6. Stir in the milk. Cook, covered, in the microwave oven for 4½ minutes or until thick and bubbly, stirring several times during the last part of the cooking.

    7. Stir in the cheese. Let set a minute, and then stir to blend the cheese throughout the sauce. Pour the sauce over the artichoke halves. Sprinkle on the bread crumbs.

    8. Bake in the microwave oven until hot and bubbly (about 2 minutes).
