Up North Dining At It's Best......
I've been waiting for this meal for YEARS!!
The first pic is assembling the Jalapeno Poppers. I made a stuffing concoction using sharp cheddar, and chive cream cheese. After thoroughlly cleaning a dozen peppers, I filled each one with the mixture. I then wrapped a 1/2 slice of bacon around the top, and stuck a toothpick through the top to keep the bacon in place, which in turn kept the filling inside. It was then placed in a Pepper rack.
The potatoes were thinly sliced along with an onion , and placed on a sheet of bacon lined aluminum foil.(yeah Baby) I then covered the top with more foil and crimped the edges.
We then turned the grill on low and cooked the taters and poppers for about an hour.
The Walleye was pan fried after dipping them in an egg wash, and coating them with a mixture of crushed saltine crackers and Cheez-Its.
The Cheez-Its not only added a different flavor, it also turned them a beautiful golden brown.
The last pic is my plate....
Trust me, I've had meals all over this country, but very very few better than this one was. To make things even better....It was with good friends!!
BTW...That dish of fillets was much bigger than it looked.
I'm still smiling...
