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.
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?
