Artichoke and Prosciutto Gratin, Mark II

In the live-blogging festival that was Thanksgiving last year, we went into lovely creamy salty detail about this dish.  It’s a perennial pleaser; some people have been known to fly in from out of state for a bite.  However, in our haste, we completely neglected to actually post the recipe.  Check out last time for the pics, but come back here for the recipe.

4:33 pm: Shiv here; I would like to point out that Biscuit ordered about 3 million pounds of prosciutto for this endeavor. This is an entirely awesome development. It’s also kind of terrifying to look at.

5:09 pm: Oh, hey, I bet you’d like the recipe, right? Right!
