Congrats on your engagement!
A bunch of us brought food, and I brought my Artichoke Squares. I thought you might like to see how they came out, and I'll share the recipe.
1 can artichokes in water
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
1 or 2 marinated red peppers
4 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning (or parsley, oregano, basil)
1/4 c. dry bread crumbs
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. chili powder (or to taste)
Preheat oven to 325. Drain juice from the can of artichokes and place 1/2 in saute pan. Saute garlic and onions in the juice. Chop the can of artichokes and the red pepper and set aside. In a bowl, beat eggs . Then add artichokes, peppers, extra artichoke juice, 1/2 of the cheddar cheese and all other ingredients. Pour into greased 9x13 pan and bake for 25. For last 5 minutes, add the rest of cheddar cheese and cook. If not browned, you can put under the broiler for a just a few minutes (no more than 5!) Cut into small squares.
