What a Steal!

I'm sort of addicted to ramekins. Small dishes of any kind, really. I found 6 of these gratins at a local thrift store the other day. I paid .49 each for them! I totally felt like I was stealing them!

So, what to put in them? How about artichoke gratin? Warning, you are going to need bread to sop up all the yummy sauce!

Artichoke Gratin

1 pound marinated artichoke hearts, cut to bite sized pieces
(if you use plain ones be sure to season them up!)
3 cloves of garlic, grated
2 cups cream or half and half
1 cup parmesan, grated

Preheat oven to 350.
Put everything in a large bowl.
Mix it all together.
(This is hard, huh!?)
Divide between 4 gratins or ramekins.
(Or just put the whole thing in a baking dish.)
Smoosh each gratin to make sure there is enough liquid in it.
(The liquid should be just covering the artichokes.)
Add more cream if you need it.
Top with extra parmesan.
Place gratins on a baking sheet.
Bake for 30 minutes, until golden brown and delicious!

I'm glad I'm not the only one with that obsession :) Well, I don't really think I'm obsessed, but that's probably exactly what a person who was obsessed would say! loL!
