Artichoke hearts

I recently went to Sam's and bought a huge jar of artichoke hearts (not pickled). Now I don't know what to do with them. I know about the dip that everyone makes, but would appreciate any other suggestions.

I like this recipe Sam the Cooking Guy - Pasta with Artichokes
I usually add some cooked chicken and grape tomatoes, too.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

This casserole from The Frugal Gourmet is very good.

We put them in salads, and I make an antipasto pasta dish with any antipasto ingredients I have on hand - Italian cured meats, cheeses, roasted red peppers, artichoke hearts, garbanzo beans, etc. I dress it with red-wine vinegar and olive oil, throw in some basil, pesto or oregano, S&P to taste - done. It's good hot or room temperature.

MY mother, when making some kind of Brisket, or roast , inn addition to carrots and potatoes, she would add the artichoke hearts to it. ( she would use the ones that were whole, not quartered.)

I've made shrimp scampi with the addition of artichoke hearts. I've used both jarred and frozen.

I love them in so many things, but one of my fave ways is roasted with a little olive oil, salt and fresh cracked black pepper. I did that the other day - turned on a good movie and just snacked on them.

I like to saute some in garlic butter.

I get mine canned, so I rinse thoroughly first. You might want to taste the liquid they are in. Mine have a citrus like flavor which I don't care for.
