Artichoke Bites

Warm and flavorful, these cheesy quiche-like appetizers are a popular favorite.

Ingredients:
 
1 (6.5 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained, liquid reserved
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
8 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Italian-style seasoning
1 dash hot pepper sauce
1 dash Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs

Directions:
 
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease four 1 3/4 inch muffin pans.
 
2. Place reserved liquid from marinated artichoke hearts in a medium saucepan. Over medium heat, slowly cook and stir onion and garlic until tender.
 
3. In a blender or food processor, mix artichoke hearts, eggs, Cheddar cheese, Swiss cheese, Parmesan cheese, parsley, black pepper, Italian-style seasoning, hot pepper sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Blend until smooth. Stir in the onions, garlic and dry bread crumbs.
 
4. Fill the muffin pans approximately 3/4 inch full with the mixture. Bake in the preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes, until firm and lightly browned. Serve warm.
