JALAPENO CHEESE SQUARES








JALAPENO CHEESE SQUARES

These are self-limiting for me as they are very hot and spicy, however, for a milder version, use canned jalapenos instead. These are an unusual appetizer.  You could also serve these at breakfast time actually. If you’re a spice chicken, the canned jalapenos are a great option or if using fresh, use only 1 jalapeno and do not use the seeds.  Someone on Facebook suggested adding a layer of cream cheese.  That could take this to a whole new level.

2 jalapeno peppers, seeded
  and finely chopped, OR use
  1/4 cup diced, canned jalapenos (60 mL)
10 oz grated Cheddar cheese (284 g)
6 eggs, fork beaten 

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Spread jalapeno peppers in 8-inch (20 cm) square glass baking dish.  Cover with Cheddar cheese.  Pour eggs over top.  Bake in oven 25 to 30 minutes, or until set.  Serve cold or at room temperature.

Helpful Hint:  Use gloves while handling jalapenos.
