  • 1 Artichoke large
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Lemon juice
  • ½ cup Pork rinds crumbled
  • ½ cup Shredded mozzarella cheese divided
  • ¼ cup Grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons Parsley chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Pour about an inch of water into the bottom of a pot on the stove over medium heat, and bring to a low boil.
  • Add 2 tbsp of lemon juice to the water.
  • Cut the stem off of the artichoke and trim a small portion off the top. Using kitchen scissors, snip off the sharp, pointy end of each of the artichoke leaves.
  • Place the prepared artichoke into the water face up, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until tender.
  • Remove the artichoke from the water, drain and allow it to cool for several minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a mixing bowl, combine all mozzarella cheese (setting aside a couple Tablespoons), parmesan cheese, olive oil, garlic, pork rind crumbs, and chopped parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste, then stir to mix.
  • Use a spoon to stuff the cheese crumb mixture into the artichoke. Be sure to get some of the mixture between each of the leaves.
  • Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese on top of the artichoke.
  • Place the stuffed artichoke on a baking tray, and broil for 5 minutes or until the cheese begins to turn golden brown.
