These delicious jalapeno’s are stuffed with bacon and Monterey Jack cheese if you want something a little hotter, go for a habanero pepper or use Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeno’s in it.  Anyway you do it, these are absolutely delicious 😉

Ingredients:

Makes 30 Stuffed Jalapeno’s

  • 15 Large Jalapeno’s (cut in half lengthwise and seeded)
  • 1 8oz Package of a Cream Cheese Brick Softened
  • 6 Slices of Bacon (you will need to cook this so it’s crispy and then break into small pieces)
  • 2  8oz Bricks of Monterey Jack Cheese (shredded, I use 1 plain and 1 with jalapeno’s in it)
  • 2 tsp of Red Pepper Flakes (optional for more heat)
  • 2 Eggs (whisked)
  • 1  Cup of Buttermilk (regular will work if you don’t have it)
  • 2 Cups of Panko Plain Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Cup of Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 Cups of Flour
  • 3 Cups of Oil For Frying

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl combine your cream cheese, shredded cheese and bacon, mix with a mixer until well combined
  2. In another bowl combine your panko bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and red pepper flakes, set aside
  3. Combine your eggs and buttermilk in a bowl and set aside
  4. Put your flour on a large plate
  5. Take 2 Tablespoons of your cream cheese mixture and spread it evenly inside your Jalapeno pepper halves
  6. After all the peppers are filled, place into the freezer for 1 hour
Coating the Peppers For Frying
  • Dredge the frozen peppers through the flour
  • Coat in the egg mixture
  • Dredge into the flour again
  • Roll into the egg mixture one last time
  • Roll in your breadcrumb mixture making sure they are fully coated
  • Return to the freezer for 15 minutes

 

Frying Your Poppers:
  1. Heat your oil in your deep fryer to 375*
  2. Take your jalapeno’s out of the freezer (just take them out few at a time as you are frying them)
  3. Cook for about 4 minutes or until golden brown
  4. Remove from oil and put on paper towel to absorb the oil
  5. I put my fried peppers in the preheated 350* oven, on a stone cookie sheet to keep them warm until I finish frying all of the peppers

 

Mix 1/2 cup of Thousand Island dressing, 3 TBSP of dill relish, 1 tsp of red pepper flakes and 2 tsp of red hot sauce together for a delicious dipping for your poppers 🙂
