Crispy Breaded Poppers

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

Ive got it worked out what i want to try! Dont give up on me i gotta find time to do it ;)

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 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.

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.

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.

Touché! Bravissimo! Wunderbar! Excelente!

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

Poppers Rangoon?

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:


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:


Then I sliced the remaining poppers into medallions and wrapped in wonton wrappers, as I got better at wrapping I made the medallions bigger:


Here's how they look pinched up:


A little egg wash and back on the MAK2 at 325, they browned up nicely.


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!
