Jalapeño Bites

Few appetizers out there are as incredible as this one right here! You really can't go wrong with cream cheese and jalapeños. They are a culinary match made in heaven! Up until a year ago, I thought I had tried just about every version of the two. That is until my friend, Susan, shared the recipe for these little gems with me. Can I just say kismet? (Would that be overdoing my affection for these just a tad?) Or should I say Oh My Goodness!?!  (Over doing it still, but now too vague?) Well let me say this...if you plan on making these for any party or get together, be sure to double the recipe. They will be gone in a flash! Yes, they are THAT incredible! Your guests will be asking for more! And will most certainly be asking for the recipe. Love when that happens!  Enjoy!


Ingredients:
1 8 oz block cream cheese, softened
8 oz shredded parmesan cheese (about 2 cups)
4 Tbs seeded and chopped jalapeños, (3-4 peppers)
1 large egg, beaten
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups panko breadcrumbs 

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Mix your cream cheese, parmesan cheese, jalapeños, egg, and salt to form a paste. Shape the paste into bite sized balls; about 1/2 Tbs for each. Roll the balls in the panko. Place on un-greased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. *Makes approximately 20 bites. Serve immediately.

Thanks to Susan Nolingberg for sharing this recipe with me!
NOTE:  An 8oz wedge of Parmesan, shredded, equals roughly 2 cups

    1. Oh no! I hate when that happens! No, I don't put mine in the fridge first. But if yours seem a bit gooey, maybe try that? I am so sorry they didn't turn out for you!

    1. Hi Heather! You could make the mix the night before. I'd wait to form the balls and roll them in the panko until right before you're ready to bake them.
