Britney Manes


2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
3 large avocados, diced small
1 lb. bacon, crisp & crumbled
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup pepper jack cheese
cup diced jalapenos
cup green onions, sliced
cup cilantro, chopped
cup red onions, diced
1 tsp. garlic salt
tsp. Cajun seasoning
tsp. pepper
1 tsp. lime juice

1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 cup flour
1-2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
2+ cups vegetable oil

Filling: fry bacon until crispy then place bacon on a plate lined with paper towels. Crumble and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese for 2-3 minutes on medium speed until creamy. Add remaining ingredients (bacon too), except avocados, stir. Gently stir diced avocados into mixture then chill in the fridge for an hour.

Coating: add flour to bowl. Whisk buttermilk and eggs together in another bowl. Place breadcrumbs in a third bowl. Form about a tablespoon of mixture into a ball. Roll each ball in flour, then into buttermilk mixture and lastly into the breadcrumbs. Place on cookie sheet that will fit into the freezer. Flash freeze for about an hour so they hold their shape while frying.

Frying: using a large cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium heat to 350. Place 6-8 balls in the pan and fry until golden brown, stirring frequently, approx. 2 minutes. Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
