Originally rated on 8/21/09 - This recipe made it into my book#266453. Oh my gosh, I'm addicted to these. In fact, it's 9:30 in the morning and I just took one out of the fridge to eat cold. I used red and green bell peppers. The batter stayed on perfectly while frying and crisped up very quickly. The flavor is amazing with the combination of seasoned breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Okay, I must go back to sneak another ring out of my fridge. I'm not kidding!
