What is a Quenelle¿Counter Intelligence

A quenelle is a light, delicate dumpling made of ground fish, chicken or veal, bound together with eggs or bread crumbs and milk. This mixture is formed into small ovals, and gently poached in stock.

Directions
1. 
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Halve the peppers and remove seeds, stems, and veins. Immerse peppers into boiling water for 3 minutes; drain. Invert peppers on paper towels to drain well. Place one pepper half in each of four greased 12- to 16-ounce au gratin dishes. Top each with cheese and jalapeno pepper.
2. 
In a medium bowl combine egg and milk. Add flour, baking powder, and cayenne pepper. Beat until smooth. Pour egg mixture evenly over peppers and cheese.
3. 
Bake, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until a knife inserted into the egg mixture comes out clean. Let stand about 5 minutes. If desired, serve with picante sauce and/or sour cream. Makes 4 (1 dish each) servings

Tip

  • *Test Kitchen Tip:

    Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
