Pepperjack Cheese Bites

Fantastic little bites that you can adjust to be fiery little bites! But the G-kids are here, so I kept the cayenne and pepperjack down.
To save oil, I like to make these in the same oil right after I pull my Honey Kissed Corndogs out of the oil.
The recipe sounds weird, but try it! Sooo good!
On to the recipe so you can make some too!
  • enough canola oil for about 1-2 inchs of oil in the bottom of a large heavy pot
  • 1 cup Aunt Jemima Just Add Water pancake mix (the ONLY pancake mix I use, it's just that good.)
  • 3/4 cup grated pepperjack cheese
  • 1/2 cup water
  • small bunch green onions, trimmed and sliced, including some of the green part
  • pinch of cayenne, if you like lotsa heat, add more!
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • kosher salt for  lightly sprinkling on the bites after they come out of the oil
 While the oil heats to about 300 degrees or so, pour the water into a medium mixing bowl.
Add the pancake mix, green onions, cheese, and seasonings all together. It'll be very thick, like dumpling dough.
When the oil is hot enough, drop by very small spoonfuls, like about a teaspoon size, into the hot oil like you would dumplings into bubbling stew.
Just do a few at a time so they don't stick together. Plus they go fast! Turn over when they start to turn deep golden brown on the underside.

Fish out with a spider spatula or tongs (careful!), and sprinkle some kosher salt onto paper towels to set the bites on.
Great dipped into the tart sweetness of my easy Honey Mustard Dip, or ranch, or sprinkled with your favorite hot sauce!Yum!
