Artichoke Bites

Serves: 6
WW Points: 2

1 slice whole wheat bread, light -- crusts removed
1/4 teaspoon oregano -- dried leaves
6 ounces artichoke heart -- drained, rinsed, and chopped
1/3 cup parmesan cheese -- freshly grated
2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley -- chopped
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 small onion -- chopped
1 clove garlic -- chopped
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 large eggs

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Lightly butter or spray a 6-cup nonstick muffin tin.

Toast the bread slice until crisp. Cool and cut the toast into small pieces into a medium-size bowl and add the oregano, artichoke hearts, cheese, and parsley.

Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat, add the onion, garlic, salt, and red pepper flakes, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir into the artichoke mixture.

Lightly beat the eggs in a small bowl until foamy, stir into the artichoke mixture; spoon a 1/4 cup of the mixture into each of the muffin cups. Cook until lightly puffed, golden, and just set in the center, about 17 to 20 minutes. Let cool on a rack for about 5 minutes, then remove the artichoke bites from the pan and serve warm.
