Recipe: Comforting Artichoke Pie


by Angela Prikockis


I have been making this recipe for about 15 years so I don’t have a written recipe. Recently I have been leaving out the artichokes because my family, except me, dislikes them. You can add whatever you want. Mostly I go vegetarian, but sometimes I make it with no-nitrates, no-MSG bacon or sausage.

  • – 4 eggs
  • – 2 cups of shredded cheese (mozzarella or Italian blend)
  • – 1 pie shell (I usually go with a frozen pie shell but if you want to make your own then more power to you)
  • – grated cheese (optional)
  • – 1 can of artichoke hearts (optional)
  • – Other veggies I used to make this pie in the past: roasted peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, corn, spinach, peas, beans. Usually I’ll make the pie with whatever I have at the moment
  • – salt and/or pepper, to taste (I rarely use salt but like to add pepper)

    Mix all the ingredients and pour into the pie shell. Cook at 350 for about an hour.
