Pan-fried Artichokes

12 baby artichokes for $2.99 at Whole Foods

Mix up 1 egg, milk, parmesan cheese, flour, salt, pepper, and fresh pressed garlic

Wash artichokes

Peel back the layers until the flesh is softer and yellow-green

Cut the tips off and the bottom stems

Slice the artichokes into 3's or 4's depending on size

Heat up a skillet with canola oil while you finish prepping the artichokes

Dunk the artichoke slice in the egg-flour mixture to cover both sides
Place it into the hot skillet (med-high heat)
Flip them over after a couple minutes to cook the other side too
Both sides should be golden brown

Take 'em out of the skillet and place on paper towels
I usually have about 2 - 3 batches to cook from the 12 baby artichokes
Best if served fresh and warm, but they can be refrigerated and served cold too
