Roasted artichoke bottoms stand in for English muffins in this quick yet elegant supper. Substitute roasted mushrooms for the pancetta for a vegetarian option. Serve with roasted new potatoes or a tossed salad.

Healthy and tasty

I made one serving to try it out using a fresh artichoke bottom and I improvised a lot. For example, used 97% fat free Canadian bacon vice pancetta for a healthier version. Used olive oil and fresh oregano and sautéed the artichoke bottom and fried the bacon. Used 1 whole egg, pepper, oregano, and a Fox Point seasoning. ehile scrambling added a little 1/3 fat free cream cheese. Not a fan of Holindaise so didn't make the sauce. Assembly--ago joke bottom, topped with Canadian bacon slice, the the scrambled egg. It was very tasty and healthy. Could also use a Egg Beaters. Now I'm hoping to be able to scavenge the bottoms from the next 4 artichokes I'm steaming this week!

Made this for Easter for my wife and daughter. Biggest hit ever. I did however did some change ups. For the lemon sauce I made Hollandaise from a package. She loves scrambled eggs. For my wife and myself, I poached us a couple of eggs. I was lucky to find large artichoke bottoms in a jar from a local persian grocery store. Easy to do and sooooo tasty.

Top notch all the way

I've made these for brunch for Mother's Day and for Easter brunch. The first time I had a problem with it being too salty, but not after that. I make sure the pancetta is crisp and then I crush it between two paper towels. I've not had a problem with the artichoke bottoms being too salty. This is a great alternative to eggs benedict which is loaded with too much fat. I even use the reduced fat cream cheese with no problems. My husband loves this dish. This is a keeper for a special breakfast.
