OK, we all seem to love poppers, ABT's, or whatever you like to call 'em cooked on the grill. But I also love the deep fried variety with a crispy breading on the outside.

So, let's see what your great minds can do with this. Come up with a smoky version of breaded poppers that will crisp up on the grill.

No store-bought pre-packaged poppers either! :p

Chili, When I thought up this challenge, I thought of you specifically. It's right up your alley! ;)

I've got my idea worked out too, but I want to see yours first. No worries, there's no deadline and I'm patient...



...as long as you don't make me go hungry! :rolleyes: :D

I am replying mostly so I don't forget to look at what he turns up with. I love these things! Maybe I will try something, but I need to think about it for a while...

I got my ingredients and got a plan. Now I need to find the time!
Picked up some great looking chiles at the supermarket today, just in.

Hopefully Friday I can do them up

I'm usually very optimistic, but, my bet is that it ain't gonna happen.
I can't get anything crispy on my Traeger.

I sliced some of the jalapeños lengthwise and some just got the tops cut off. I wasn't sure which would work better so I did both.
I stuffed em with cheese, wrapped em in bacon and dusted em with BPS garlic season salt with jalapeño.

Next I heated up some canola oil in the mak griddle. I love the griddle!

Test run #1
http://img.tapatalk.com/d/13/05/28/5ybetuha.jpg

Turned out not bad!
I rolled the rest in buttermilk and Panko.

Done! Not too shabby for the first ever pellet grill fried jalapeño poppers!

Plated with some habanero sauce and sprinkled with cilantro.

Wow! Those are killer! Great job Chili. I have to ask...how bad was the clean up job after frying on the griddle?

Chili Head
05-27-2013, 12:56 PM
Dunno yet lol. It shouldn't be too bad though. The oil didn't splatter bad when i cooked the poppers. Ill just pour the oil out of the griddle and place the grates back in. I usually run it on high for awhile once a week to burn off stuff.

Chili Head

Clean up was a piece of cake. There is this very strong burnt smokey smell in the MAK now from my bone head move explained in another post. Trying to burn that out now before I cook a flank steak soon. May have to use the gasser instead.

Very nicely done Chili! That's a very different and unexpected approach, and I like it!

The rules said no time limit....so when I read this challenge it got me thinking about some other cooks I've done in the past...Time to experiment!

I know the request was for crispy breaded poppers...here we're just going for crispy.

Most of the ingredients:
http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/ee462/jrippey73/IMG_4676r.jpg (http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/jrippey73/media/IMG_4676r.jpg.html)

Pretty much my standard popper mix: cream cheese, 4 cheese, Desert Gold, Cuckoo Racha, cayenne, and a dash of Frank's Red Hot. Wrapped with thin slice bacon, cooked on the MAK2 at 275.

I rolled some of the cooked poppers in egg roll wrappers:
http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/ee462/jrippey73/IMG_4680r.jpg (http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/jrippey73/media/IMG_4680r.jpg.html)

Then I sliced the remaining poppers into medallions and wrapped in wonton wrappers, as I got better at wrapping I made the medallions bigger:
http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/ee462/jrippey73/IMG_4681r.jpg (http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/jrippey73/media/IMG_4681r.jpg.html)

Here's how they look pinched up:
http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/ee462/jrippey73/IMG_4685r.jpg (http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/jrippey73/media/IMG_4685r.jpg.html)

A little egg wash and back on the MAK2 at 325, they browned up nicely.
http://i1229.photobucket.com/albums/ee462/jrippey73/IMG_4690r.jpg (http://s1229.photobucket.com/user/jrippey73/media/IMG_4690r.jpg.html)

Verdict?

The Egg Roll poppers were tasty and definitely crispy, but not all that visually appealing.

The real star turned out to be the wonton wraps, very crispy and done in 1 or 2 bites.

I can see wrapping other foods as well, a chunk of banana and chocolate? (nod to Scooter's famous desert)

I think next time I will add a dollop of cream cheese to the medallion before wrapping...Poppers Rangoon anyone?

Yowza those look good!

I would NEVER have thought to try wonton wrappers. I will be keeping this in mind. Thanks Rip!

Ingredients:

8 ounces Monterey Jack cheese, grated on large holes of a box grater
3 ounces sharp cheddar, grated on large holes of a box grater
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup evaporated milk
2 teaspoons hot sauce, such as Frank's RedHot
1 pound jalapeños, stemmed, sliced into 1/2-inch rings, and seeded
2 cups cornflakes
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
3 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup bacon fat or canola oil
1 batch roasted tomato salsa or your favorite salsa, for serving

Directions

1. Place Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses in a medium bowl and toss with cornstarch until evenly coated. Transfer cheese to a medium saucepan and add evaporated milk and hot sauce. Place over low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until melted and thickened, about 5 minutes. Let stand until cooled to room temperature.


2. Arrange jalapeño rings on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Spoon cheese sauce into jalapeño rings, patting down with fingers.


3. Place cornflakes and breadcrumbs in the work bowl of a food processor and pulse until cornflakes are finely processed. Transfer breading mixture to a shallow bowl.


4. Place buttermilk and flour in separate shallow bowls. Working one at a time, dunk a jalapeño slice into buttermilk and then roll around in flour until completely coated. Dunk jalapeño slice back into buttermilk and then roll around in breadcrumb mixture until completely coated. Transfer to a wire rack set in a rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with all jalapeño rings. Transfer baking sheet to refrigerator and let cool for 1 hour.


5. Preheat oven to 425°F. Brush breaded jalapeños all over with bacon fat or oil. Transfer baking sheet to oven and cook until cheese is heated throughout and outsides are browned and crisp, 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer jalapeño poppers to a tray. Serve immediately.
