Smoked Sausage Stuffed Artichokes

Smoked Sausage Stuffed Artichoke, a recipe with an elegant spin on a classic combination of delectable Italian flavors for a perfect seasonal appetizer.

Artichokes stand as one of those foods incredibly hard to justify preparing. They are tough, have a short season in the market, and require prep-work before you get to scrape out the few edible bits between your teeth.


- whole artichokes - fresh lemon juice - fresh sausage  - breadcrumbs - ground black pepper - clarified butter - goat cheese - mayo


Starting with the artichokes, remove the top with a sharp knife. Trim the pointed ends of each leaf with a pair of kitchen shears.

With your hands, work the artichoke leaves away from the center, exposing the inner tight leaves.

Whisk the mayo, sour cream, and juice from 1 lemon into a small bowl. Add 1 teaspoon of zest to the mix and season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle paprika on top.

Since the days of the Romans, artichokes have been a staple in a Mediterranean diet. They can be found growing around the region as well as in the Americas and Africa.
