  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or heavy deep skillet to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Place seasoned bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip artichoke hearts in the egg mixture, then roll in bread crumbs until they are fully covered.
  3. Deep-fry for 2 to 3 minutes, until deep golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain excess oil. When all the pieces have been fried, place on a serving tray and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

I love this recipe. My only changes were to dip the artichoke in the egg mixture, then flour, egg mixture and bread crumbs, and I seasoned them with granulated garlic and cayenne. I also served them with lemon wedges. Great recipe but not even close to 24 servings. I only wish I'd read the review that recommended serving them with garlic butter. Next time for sure!

hmmm....not sure what I might have done wrong? I coated these twice (milk then crumbs, then milk and crumbs again)...breading was still very thin. The artichokes were bland....should have added some salt. Just wasn't my favorite, but I needed something to do with my cans of artichokes, so thanks for the recipe.

I've made these three times now and love them! They are great served with garlic butter like my favorite restaurant. I've also found if you double dip them you get a thicker coating. Grating some fresh paresan on right after they come out of the deep fryer is a must. Thanks for the post WolfChik!

These were very tasty - I added romano cheese into the breadcrumbs. The number of servings was incorrect though. There are only 6-8 hearts in each can of artichokes. Perhaps it should be 2-4 servings instead of 24. I will definitely make these again.

These were very good. I didn't have any bread crumbs on hand so I used some Panko crumbs. I think that the Panko added a little extra crunch that everyone enjoyed. I ended up making this two nights in a row because they went over so well. I agree with the other reviewers, you only need 1 egg and 1/4 cup of milk, and halve the crumbs also. We will be having this again.

Excellent! This is a favorite in my family when we go to Deanie's in New Orleans, so it was great to find this recipe just like theirs. Thanks for submitting this great recipe!

These were really yummy. I followed another review and served it with garlic butter, excellent addition. I also think a squirt of lemon juice would be tasty. I ended up with way more egg/bread crumbs than needed so will decrease these by 1/2 next time.

I made a double batch of these last night at some friends' house. (I only doubled the artichoke hearts - there was plenty of breadcrumbs & egg wash.) YUM! Everyone loved them, and we've agreed that we definitely have to make them again!
