Artichoke Poppers

Member Bettina Vernon served these savory little pop-in-your-mouth morsels at a New Year’s party, and guests said “if there were any leftovers, they would fight for them.”


  • 2 (10-ounce) packages artichoke dip (homemade or store-bought, well chilled)*

  • 1 cup flour

  • 3 eggs 

  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs

  • Olive oil

  • 1 lemon (or lemon juice)


  • Crack three eggs into a bowl and beat with a fork. 

  • Put flour and panko breadcrumbs in separate bowls.

  • Take a spoonful of artichoke dip (about the size of a walnut) and roll into a ball. Dip in flour, then egg and finally in the panko.

  • Pour enough oil into a frying pan to cover the bottom and heat on medium-high.

  • Place your poppers in the pan, being careful not to overcrowd. When golden brown on bottom, flip and fry until the other side is also golden brown. 

  • Remove from pan onto a flat surface covered with a paper towel. 

  • Squeeze some lemon juice on poppers, place on a platter and serve.

*Important: Make sure your artichoke dip has chilled overnight so that it is firm.
