A tasty combination of cheesy, crispy and tender, these tortellinis are an easy but impressive appetizer or snack. Breaded cheese tortellinis are baked until crispy, then served with marinara sauce for dipping (I like to use my own Angie's Bella Marinara with extra herbs.).
These are a family-favorite they fry up light and so fluffy, a must drizzled pancake or maple syrup on top, servings is only estimated it will depend on how much the batter you drop from the spoon --- these can also be made in a deep-fryer with oil heated to 365°F :)
In Mexico you can buy these on just about every street corner. They are usually round slices heavily laden with chili. Very refreshing. When you buy a Jicama make sure it is very firm and free from mold patches. When you slice it open the flesh must be white otherwise it is too old. This is a very low calorie recipe, it fact it is low everything!
My partner Emmett and I were travelling in Florida and found these delicacies at a roadside stand. We were instantly hooked, and when we came home we set about to making our own. Emmett perfected the recipe the other week, and here it is.
Make certain that the cheese sticks are very well coated with the egg/water mix and the cereal coating, or the cheese will flow out when baking, also let the cheese sticks sit out for 30 minutes to dry out the outer crumb coating before baking, the cornflakes must be very finely crushed or they will not adhear to the sticks, these steps are very important --- prep time includes drying out for 30 minutes.
This is a simple recipe I prepare in my smoker when I’m all done smoking but there are warm coals left. They make the best gift! I told the Zaar computer one pound, but I usually do as many as my smoker can hold in pans, with room for the heat and smoke to circulate. More like 4 or 5 pounds - for gifts and the freezer.
