These sure do have a bite... and we loved every nibble!

4-5 jalapenos chopped
2 Tbsp
2 - 4 tbs. milk or half & half or cream
1/2 c
bread crumbs, dry
crushed red pepper to taste(use more for hotter bites)
salt & pepper to tase
cornmeal and buttermilk for coating


1In large bowl, combine cheese, peppers, milk, and breadcrumbs. Mix well by hand, then form small egg shapes.
2Roll the “eggs” in mixture of cornmeal and seasonings, then dip them in buttermilk and roll them in cornmeal again.
