3 artichokes
1 egg
1/4c. Italian bread crumbs
1/4c. grated Pecorino Romano cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash original blend seasoning
1T. minced parsley
3T. olive oil
9 slices, 2"x1" each, provolone or extra-sharp cheddar cheese

Cut off the bottom of the stem and pull off the small outside leaves from the bottom of each artichoke. Cut the pointed part of each leaf off with scissors. Wash artichokes.
In a small bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs, grated Pecorino Romano cheese, Mrs. Dash seasoning, and parsley. Mix together with a fork. Divide this mixture among the artichokes, putting it inside each leaf and pressing leaves back into place. (You should get enough for 3 leaves for each of the 3 artichokes.) Take the thin pieces of either the Provolone or cheddar cheese and do the same thing. (3 leaves for each of the 3 artichokes).
Stand the artichokes side by side in a pot filled with 2/3c. of water. Pour the olive oil generously over each artichoke and cover with a tight lid. Bring water to a boil, then immediately put on low flame to steam for about 45 minutes longer. The artichokes are done when a leaf pulls out easily.
