Bacon-wrapped Artichokes


Friday! How about an easy appetizer – perfect to serve with drinks! The recipe is from my favorite culinary mystery writer, Diane Mott Davidson. It appeared in a book called “The Main Corpse” – very nice. I like the whole series a lot – they’re really fun to read, and the food sounds delicious, too. I’ve tried a few recipes, but surprisingly few really. I should try more!

Anyway. Line your pan before making these, or they can be a bit hard to pry off.

Bacon-wrapped Artichokes

1 can of artichoke bottoms
140 g bacon

Dipping sauce:
3 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp heavy cream

Cut the bottoms into six wedges each. Cut the bacon in the same amount of pieces, and wrap the artichoke pieces in these. Put in a lined oven-proof pan and bake at 200°C for 10-15 minutes or until the bacon looks crispy. Place a cocktail stick in each and serve.

Stir together cream and mustard, and serve in a small bowl alongside.
