artichoke waffle fritters.

Who loves crispy, fried cheese?  You know that cheese leftover on the pan from a grilled cheese?  Yes.  Add artichoke and fresh herbs… and you get artichoke waffle fritters.   Using a waffle maker is the key in this recipe.  It holds everything together while making the fritters crispy.  If you don’t have one… I suggest you get one because why wouldn’t you want to make waffles every day of your life?  Honestly.


  • 2 cans artichoke quarters (low sodium, packed in water)
  • all purpose garlic & herb seasoning (I got this from Whole Foods and I use it for EVERYTHING! – if you do not have this, use garlic powder, salt & pepper to your taste)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


  • heat waffle maker on high
  • chop the artichoke quarters into smaller pieces so there are no huge chunks
  • mix all the ingredients in one large bowl
  • grease waffle maker on both sides
  • add about 2 tablespoons, 4 times, of the artichoke mixture onto the waffle maker so it makes 4 separate small waffles (4 should fit, but it depends what waffle maker you have)
  • close and cook until the “ready” light comes on
  • carefully transfer to a plate to cool (they will get easier to handle once they’re cooled)
  • repeat with the rest of the mixture
  • YUM!!
