Garlic Rosemary Roasted Artichokes

I love artichokes and have always had them steamed and I would dip them in butter.  Then I had the grilled artichokes at Yard House (I really need to get a Grill) and they were bursting with flavor.  I will never have a steamed artichoke again.

 Instead of dipping them in butter I decided to roast the artichokes in butter and not any butter but garlic and fresh rosemary.

Garlic Rosemary Roasted Artichokes

20 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary
1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature 
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
4 large artichokes

Peel 16 cloves of garlic and set aside.  Mince the remaining 4 cloves of garlic and add to a small bowl with the butter.  Mince rosemary add to the butter along with the salt and pepper.  Mix together and allow to sit for several hours.  I usually make the butter in the morning and allow to sit out at room temperature until I use it in the evening.

Trim artichokes cutting the stem and trimming thorny leaves.  Cut top off artichoke about an inch down.  Stuff 4 cloves of garlic into each artichoke.  Divide the butter between the 4 artichokes and smear the butter mixture over the top pushing it down between the leaves.  Standing the artichokes upright wrap tightly in aluminum foil and place in a small baking dish so they do not fall over.  Place in a pre-heated 425 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours.  After removing from oven allow to sit for 15 to 20 minutes before removing from foil.

Until Next Time,

  1. That is really tasty artichokes Pam.

  2. These look insanely good! I am so intimidated by fresh artichokes but made it my goal to conquer them this year.

  3. These look wonderful. I love artichokes, but I usually steam them. I can't wait to try them this way. I chose this as my Foodie Friends Friday host favorite, so it will be featured on Daily Dish Magazine tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing!

  4. How wonderful yummy is that? The perfect share for Foodie Friends Friday garlic party. Thank you for sharing.
