I ate a ridiculously good appetizer over the weekend - which was creamy burrata cheese served with crispy artichoke hearts. Simple, but the different textures and flavors were incredible. While I don't know how to make my own burrata (one day... one day I will have cows and churn butter), I did figure out how to make crispy artichokes and it was stupid easy. Buy a can or jar of artichoke hearts, drain them, heat about 1/2 inch olive oil in a deep skillet over medium-high heat, add artichokes and pan fry! I left them in for a couple of minutes per side. Using a slotted spoon, I removed them onto a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkled them with sea salt. Eat these plain or with burrata or over a salad or... you tell me. The possibilities are endless. Hope you enjoyed your weekends, Internet friends!
