We enjoy having friends over on occasion. One, it’s a nice chance to get together and, two, it’s a great opportunity to make new recipes for the blog.

I found this baked artichoke squares recipe in my Mom’s recipe collection. I made it years and years ago and then promptly lost it.

One day while perusing a folder of hers full of handwritten recipes, there it was! I may or may not have done a happy dance.

Our neighbors had a gathering planned so I offered to bring this recipe. It’s just as yummy as I remember. Plus, it was a hit. Everyone loved them.

How do I serve artichoke squares?

This recipe is so easy to make and serve. It’s yummy warm or at room temperature. This recipe travels well making it perfect for a potluck party.

When I serve these baked artichoke squares I cut them into about 2-inch by 1-inch rectangles. You could certainly cut them larger or smaller depending on your preference.

If you have more appetizer offerings at your party, go with smaller squares but if you have fewer appetizers to offer, go with larger ones.

You may consider putting each square in a mini or regular-size paper muffin cup for easier handling. Your guests would probably appreciate it.

Pro Tip

These cheesy baked artichoke squares could also be served as a side dish for any entree. Just cut them a bit larger for a side dish portion.

What Beverages Should I Serve with Artichoke Squares?

These baked artichoke squares pair nicely with a white wine such as a pinot grigio or sauvignon blanc, even a chardonnay or my white wine sangria.

If you prefer a cocktail, something light like a vodka soda or an Irish Buck cocktail.

Beer is another option but don’t go with a dark beer. Something like a lager would be perfect.

Can I freeze artichoke squares? 

Yes! Wrap leftovers in plastic wrap and then again in foil. Store in a labeled freezer bag. When ready to use, warm them up in a low, 300°F oven or microwave briefly. My preferred method is the oven.

Can I use plain artichoke hearts as opposed to marinated?

I recommend using marinated artichoke hearts because the marinade, a combination of oil flavored with garlic, herbs, and sometimes peppercorns and chiles, make the recipe all the more flavorful. 

Using a plain variety will produce bland appetizers.

What can I substitute for the Cheddar cheese?

You could substitute the Cheddar cheese with mozzarella or Colby. Either would be delicious. An alternative name for this appetizer could be cheesy artichoke squares.

Why We Love This Recipe

I think one of the reasons this appetizer is such a hit is because it’s a little different. Artichokes are not all that common in appetizers. They may be common as an appetizer but rarely do I attend a party where there is an artichoke appetizer.

There are always spinach dips or cocktail meatballs or even wings. As a result, those are really popular.

I doubled the recipe and made two pans of them. I plan on using them tomorrow and reheating them. Have you ever done that?

Hi Peggy! Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. I actually have reheated them, when I've had leftovers. I do it in a warm, 300°F oven for about 15 minutes but check at about the 10-minute mark since every oven is different. If not quite warm enough, leave in for 5 - 7 minutes more but no longer.

I want to make these today…but… a 9x13 pan and 8 servings??? Either the pan or servings are incorrect.

It really depends on what size you cut them. Small squares served as an appetizer and you can get 8 servings. Larger squares served as a side dish and you can also get 8 servings, maybe more. I served them as an appetizer with other nibbles to 6 guests and had a few leftover.

Gonna make these for my club’s opening day next week. Have you ever tried it with Parmesan ( because I bought it at Costco by mistake & I don’t want to go back)! Thanks, I’ll let you know how it goes!

Hi Sherry! I have not made these artichoke squares with Parmesan but it sounds delicious. If you've bought pre-grated or pre-shredded Parmesan, it may not melt as well as Cheddar. I'd love to hear how it works out!

I made something similar to these years ago. Your recipe is simple and great. I added mushrooms and a few teaspoons of leftover chopped jalapeños (canned, not hot). I turned out great, I was careful to cook the mushrooms with the onion to avoid too much liquid. Thanks!

Hmm...that is a very interesting idea! I do think it could work! Still grease the tin and don't fill them to the top. Please let me know how it works if you try it.
