These were delicious for lunch with a nice side salad but would be great as appetizers for a dinner party or maybe even a latenight snack. The recipe that inspired this had a bunch of cheese; these were delicious without.
I don't think they would reheat very well though as the moisture in the artichokes would make the bacon soggy if not eaten immediately.
Recipe - Bacon Wrapped Artichokes Hearts
12 Canned Whole Artichoke Hearts (About 2 cans)
12 Slices of Bacon
Oil (Coconut, Avocado, or Bacon Fat)
Drain and pat dry the artichoke hearts.
Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper
Roll each Artichoke Heart in a slice of bacon width-wise and secure with a toothpick
Heat a Frying Pan over medium heat and add 3 tbsp of your favourite fat (Bacon today).
Add in the artichoke hearts and fry for 3-4 minutes a side until the exposed artichokes are golden and the bacon is crispy.
They will spit quite a bit when turning as moisture is released from the artichoke hearts.
