Fig Poppers with Sauce

Ingredients

  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened

  • 2 Tbs chopped, pickled jalapeño peppers

  • 8 fresh California Black Mission figs

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 2 cups bread crumbs

  • Oil, for frying

  • 1/4 cup hot pepper jelly (for dipping)

  • 1/4 cup ranch dressing (for dipping)

This take on everyone's favorite late-night bar snack features fresh figs instead of jalapeños.

Directions

  • In small bowl, thoroughly blend cheese and jalapeños; transfer to pastry bag with small tip.
  • Cut a slit in one side of each fig, and scoop out a little of the center to make a pocket.
  • Insert pastry tip into slit, and squeeze bag to fill pockets with cheese mixture.
  • Dust figs lightly with flour. Dip each fig in egg wash, draining excess egg; then, roll in bread crumbs, shaking off excess. Repeat dipping in egg wash and rolling in bread crumbs till fairly heavily coated.
  • Fry in hot oil at 350°F until brown and crispy. Serve warm with hot pepper jelly and ranch dressing for dipping.
