Pancake Battered Jalapeno Poppers

Pancake Battered Jalapeno Poppers

Did you know that February 28th is National Pancake Day??

To celebrate, Target and Amazon are offering a nice discount on T-fal cookware.

Speaking of T-fal, I recently received one of their Thermo-Spot™ non stick fry pans and I’m in love with it. It features T-fal’s patented Thermospot™ technology. Their unique heat indicator shows when the pan is ready to seal in flavor and prevents burning.

I love this pan – everything slides right off, and the Thermospot™ technology is so convenient.

So, back to the poppers – I know the concept sounds crazy.

But just stay with me here.

It’s the typical popper recipe, but amped waayyy up.

The pancake batter is thick, adds a sweet element, and makes the entire popper a superior experience to be had.

Also, what I did that’s way different is the addition of a dip.

I say different because it’s honey mustard.

Yes, honey mustard.

And it’s amazing.

One wouldn’t expect this to work, but OH MY WORD, it does.

Very well.

I think it goes hand in hand with the whole pancake thing, maybe??

These are off the charts ridiculously, insanely delicious.

    These look divine. So divine, in fact, that I think you should consider an autumn trip to the State Fair of Texas — the cook-off. It’s ground zero for fried goodness. And I’m serious as fuck.
