Best ever Jalapeño Poppers
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (8ounce) package shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon of bacon bits
12 ounces of jalapeño peppers, seeded and halved
1 cup milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
1cup dry bread crumbs
2 quarts oil for frying
1- In a bowl mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese and bacon bits. Spoon this mixture into the jalapeño pepper halves.
2- Put the milk and lour into two separate small bowls. Dip the stuffed jalapeño first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each. Allow the coated jalapenos to dry for about 10 minutes.
3- Dip the jalapenos in milk again and roll them in the bread crumbs. Allow them to dry and then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeño is coated.
4- In a medium skillet, heat the oil to 365 degrees F (180degrees C). Deep fry the coated jalapenos 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.
