jalapeno squares

Potlucks are always a good way to get new food ideas. When we joined a recent summer potluck picnic, a shrimp boil actually, we had a chance to try a few refreshing salads and interesting desserts but this appetizer caught my interest. I never met the lady who brought the dish but with a little research online, I found the recipe and tried to make it. As easy as 1-2-3, this recipe has only three ingredients. Jarred sliced jalapenos provide the "kick" to this hot and spicy dish while two cups of grated cheddar cheese along with beaten eggs bind the simple mixture together. The more cheese is used, the thicker the squares will be. Bake for about 45 minutes or until set. Arrange the sliced jalapenos in a single layer on a baking pan or glass baking dish, then sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the jalapenos. Pour the beaten eggs next and bake until set. Cut into squares and serve warm.
