Notes and Tips

  • You may use a skillet, a baking dish, or a casserole dish to make this recipe. Essentially, you may saute the onions, garlic, and artichoke and once all that is ready, pour it into a baking or casserole dish, top with cheese, and then bake.
  • We used seasoned breadcrumbs, but if you only have plain that’s fine. Just add a dash or two of your seasoning of choice.
  • Consider topping the dish with some lemon zest, or once done, sprinkle with a bit of lemon juice.
  • For a creamy version of this artichoke casserole dish, consider adding some cream cheese. The instructions will change a bit. You will have to add the cream cheese after step 2. Then add in the broth with the garlic, and stir to combine until the cheese has melted. Then add the green beans, and artichoke, and toss to combine. Then go to step 4 and just skip adding the broth since you already added it.
  • Use any shredded cheese of your choice. Blended cheese or mozzarella will work.

Storing and reheating

  • Storing: Once leftovers are cooled, place them in a sealed container and store them in the fridge for up to 5 days. You may freeze for up to 4 months.
  • Reheating: To reheat, remove from the fridge and microwave for 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave. If removing it from the freezer, you may either allow it to defrost first and then reheat it in the microwave or just use the defrost option on your microwave for a few minutes,
