4 large artichokes (about 3 lbs.)
4 cups fresh bread crumbs*
3/4 cup Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

Bring broth and remaining 1/4 cup onion to a boil in large nonaluminum saucepot. Add artichokes and simmer covered, basting occasionally, 40 minutes or until leaves are tender and pull out easily.
HOW TO PREPARE ARTICHOKES FOR COOKING: 1. Wash artichokes in cold water; drain.
2. Cut stem close to base with a large knife. Cut off 1 inch of top.
3. Remove tough lower leaves or discolored leaves.
4. If desired, cut off sharp leaf tips with scissors. Brush cut edges with lemon juice.
*For best flavor and texture, make the fresh bread crumbs using Italian or French bread. Also terrific with Wish-Bone® Robusto Italian Dressing or Wish-Bone® Light Italian Dressing.
