Homemade jalapeno poppers filled with cheese and sausage are easy to make and so easy and delicious. Serve as an appetizer any time of the year, especially for parties around big football games.
- 8 jalapeño peppers, halved and seeded
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese, softed
- 3 tablespoons cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cups milk
- 1 cup crushed Panko crumbs
- 1/3 cup flour
- Oil for deep frying
Preparation time 20mins
Cooking time 30mins
In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese with the cheddar cheese. Spoon the mixture into the jalapeno halves. Dip the stuffed jalapeno first into milk and then into the flour.
Wait for several minutes for the flour dry out slightly. Then, dip it into the milk again and now into the crushed panko. You can repeat the milk & panko step twice to get a nice thicker panko crust. Wait for the coat to dry out slightly between the steps.
In a medium pan, heat the oil to 365°F and deep fry the jalapeno for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
