    T exas C ooker (TC)'s Note:

    This is a spicy great fried treat which will bring your mouth to the Heart of Texas. Combine your Grandmothers Thanksgiving Dressing with Texas Spices and then deep fry them to create a spicy ball with a dry crust exterior and a warm moist interior.

    6. 6
      Bake on 350 until slightly thick and brown. (I like to stir mine every 15 min and taste to see if I nee to spice it up).

    8. 8
      Place 4 to 5 beat eggs, flour and bread crumbs in 3 separate bowls.

    11. 11
      Deep fry on 350 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes. (Not too long, remember the inside is already cooked. You just want a nice hard crunchy exterior).

      I love these things being from texas i tried my own little twist.

      Tak some chicken breast pound them flat put a few jalapeno slices in with a cube of cheese, whatever kind you like, start at one end and roll it up, wrap it with 2 or 3 slices of bacon put a toothpick thru it and drop it in the deep fryer or go further and after you wrap it roll it in some flour and deep fry it that way

      These were a hit at my Super Bowl party. I followed the recipe exactly and I kept adding more cayenne and crushed red pepper as it was cooking, just like you do. :) I'm not a Texan, but I sure do like the heat!
