Monday’s Bread Bowl: Shzam Jalapeno Poppers

Packed with cheese and heat

The Mexican tradition gets a two or more unexpected twists in this week’s yummy dish.  Here’s the recipe: 

What you will need:

1 fry-pan
1 serving dish
1 cup vegetable oil
3 medium-sized mixing bowls
6 or 8 Jalapeno peppers
1/3 cup cilantro, minced
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1/3 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons green onion, thinly sliced
2 whole eggs
½ cup milk
½ cup wasabi peas, crushed
½ cup panko breadcrumbs

Cooking and Directions:

Combine feta cheese, mozzarella cheese, green onion, cilantro, and one whole egg in a mixing bowl.  Mix well.  Set aside.  Make an incision, going lengthwise, into each Jalapeno then stuff with cheese mixture.  Repeat for each pepper.  Pour breadcrumbs into another mixing bowl.  Add crushed wasabi peas.  Mix well to form breading for poppers.  Set aside, too.  Now, beat 1 whole egg and 1/3 cup milk in a third bowl.   

Preheat fry-pan on medium-high heat for at least 3 minutes.  Allow the oil to get hot enough for frying.  Dip each stuffed pepper in egg mixture then roll in breadcrumbs.  Place each coated jalapeno in fry pan to brown and crisp up (3-5 minutes).  Turn peppers at least once while frying.  Remove fried poppers to serving dish.  Serve immediately.
