This is an easy 5-ingredient recipe that utilizes ready-made pie crust. If you are ambitious, by all means make your own dough. I prefer to use the pre-made dough and roll it out.
Ingredients
  • 1 9″ pie crust (I used a deep dish pie pan so the crust only came up to the top of the edge)
  • 2 can quartered articokes
  • 1 16oz block of mozzarella cut into chuncks
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 gloves garlic
Instructions
  1. Place oil in saute pan with garlic. Cook a minute or two until fragrant. Add the artichokes and saute until they are soft but not browned.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the block of mozzarella into chunks. Drop eggs into a bowl and whisk a little, then add the cheese. Add artichokes into the pie crust with a slotted spoon. Pour the egg mixture on top. Sprinkle with breadcrumbs and bake in a 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes.

Serve with a simple green salad and light vinaigrette.    It’s rich, creamy and comforting, but most of all easy.
