About this recipe: These minature quiches are so simple to make since there's no pastry - great for a party.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Being a Professional caterer for over 25 years, this recipe is actually a staple on my Hors d'oeuvre list for at least the last 15. Customers love these. I did, however, change a few things. I found that processing ingredients was definitely not a good idea- end result is too pasty. I coarse chopped the artichokes and onions, added more hot sauce, and some Italian dressing without the oil. I just use seasoned bread crumbs, eliminating the need for Italian seasoning.

My wife made these yesterday and had the following suggestions - double or even triple the artichoke as the flavor got lost in all the cheese - too many eggs - not enough breadcrumbs - she also plans to bake these in a shallow pan so she can cut them into small squares - I thought they tasted like cheesy scrambled eggs myself - 21 Jun 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
As written I couldn't understand why this recipe would be called artichoke bites using only one jar of artichokes. There seemed to more egg in this then anything else, so I cut the eggs down to four and used four jars of the artichokes. It turned out delicious! - 06 Jan 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
