Texas Roadhouse Rattlesnake Bites

  • Author: Easy Recipes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes



2 cups pepper jack cheese, shredded
2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
2 jalapenos, seeds removed, sautéed until soft
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
1 cup buttermilk
1½ cup Panko breadcrumbs (see note)
2 teaspoons Slap Ya Mama seasoning
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
12 cups vegetable oil


  1. Prepare the Dredging Station: Set up three shallow containers. In the first, place the flour. In the second, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs. In the third, combine the breadcrumbs with all the seasonings.
  2. Make the Filling: In a large bowl, mix both cheeses and the softened jalapenos.
  3. Form and Freeze: Roll the mixture into small balls and place them on a baking sheet. Flash freeze for 30-45 minutes.
  4. Dredge: Roll each ball in the flour, dip in the egg mixture, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat the dip in the egg mixture and the breadcrumb coating for a double layer.
  5. Fry: Heat the oil in a large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the balls in batches, about 6-8 at a time, until golden on all sides. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
