Recipes: Bar Bites – A Man of the Month Cookbook

Author J. Kenner and food expert Suzanne Johnson partner up to bring you short stories with bar bites and drink recipes served up at the fictional bar, The Fix on Sixth. The book—BAR BITES: A MAN OF THE MONTH COOKBOOK—is out tomorrow, but today, I’m giving you a sneak peek with a couple of recipes you’ll want to be whipping up at home!


  • Pimento Cheese Poppers

    1 (4 ounce) jar diced pimentos, not drained
    8 ounces shredded sharp yellow cheddar
    8 ounces shredded sharp white cheddar
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    1 cup mayonnaise
    8-10 jalapenos, seeded and halved
    1 cup flour
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup milk
    2 cups panko bread crumbs
    4 cups oil, for frying

    Mix first 5 ingredients together in a medium bowl. Stuff 1 tablespoon of pimento cheese in each half of a jalapeno. Roll each stuffed jalapeno in flour and place on a cookie sheet. Freeze for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour. While the peppers are freezing, whisk together eggs and milk in one bowl and pour panko breadcrumbs in another bowl. Heat oil to 350 degrees in a Dutch oven. While oil is heating, remove peppers from freezer and dredge in the egg mixture and then in panko. Place 3-4 jalapenos at a time in oil and fry for 1-2 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining peppers.

  • Jalapeño Margarita

    4 ounces Patron tequila
    2 ounces triple sec
    Juice of 1 lime
    4 slices fresh jalapeño

    Wet the rim of a margarita glass and dip into salt. Fill glass with ice. Place tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker with 3-4 cubes of ice and shake until well blended. Pour over ice and serve with the jalapeño slices.
