Chilli Cheesy Nuggets

These are gooey with aromatic chilli taste.  Perfect for parties.  Love these little babies when Peter and I ordered them at Burger King the other night.

We had leftovers, which we kept in the fridge and reheated in the oven at 180C for 5 minutes.  They came out so lovely.

Anyway, Burger King’s ones are delicious but they can be easily done at home.  Below is the recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 75g grated mature cheddar
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped `Jalapeno peppers or green peppers (remove the seeds and white membranes if not partial to too much heat)
  • vegetable oil (for deep-frying)
  • 1/4 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 2 eggs, beaten with a teaspoon of turmeric or chilli powder
  • milk

 

Directions

  1. Use a cheese grater to chop the chunk of cheese finely if you can’t find an already grated cheese in your local supermarket. 🙂
  2. In a mixing bowl, add together the grated cheese, Jalapeno, cornflour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and parsley. Add a bit of milk to make the ingredients adhere together.  Mix well until a dough is created.
  3. Then divide the dough into equal bite-size balls.
  4. Roll each ball first in the plain flour, then dip into the spiced beaten eggs and then roll into the bread crumbs.
  5. Deep fry until golden all over.
  6. Let them rest on paper towels to absorb the excess oil.

Enjoy with fried chicken or burger.

YUMMY
