READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

These are a bit reminiscent of stuffed jalapeño peppers but much easier to make. I found this in the Junior League Celebrations cookbook.

My DH favorite! I use Panko bread crumbs (important). After breading I press them with a spatula to make them coin shaped (if the taste is good what difference the shape?) When prepared I place them in freezer on a sheet until slightly frozen then bag for use when needed.
Out of freezer bake at 350 for 10 minutes then flip and bake 10 minutes. My guests request the recipe time and again.
