Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix 2/3 cup Asiago cheese, the goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon peel, salt and pepper. Roll each artichoke piece in mixture until coated. Place on cookie sheet. Refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 2 In 3 separate small bowls, place flour, eggs and bread crumbs. Dip each cheese-coated artichoke piece in flour and then in egg; roll in bread crumbs until coated. Return to cookie sheet.
  • 3 In heavy saucepan or large skillet, heat oil to 350°F. Fry poppers, a few at a time, in hot oil until golden brown on both sides. Drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 250°F oven until serving time. Sprinkle poppers with additional Asiago cheese. Garnish with lemon.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Place half of the flour and bread crumbs in the bowls at a time so you can refresh if they get too sticky when breading the artichoke-cheese balls.

For a lower-fat version, roll the cheese-coated artichokes in additional Asiago and refrigerate for 4 hours. Skip the breading and frying steps, and serve them cold.

If you have a deep fryer, go ahead and use it to fry these poppers.
