These bite-sized morsels are just as creamy, crunchy, spicy, and flavorful as the original but easier to make AND easier to eat.
In a large bowl, mix the shredded cheese, cream cheese, jalapeños, bacon, and minced garlic.
Scoop into balls and arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Freeze.
Dunk the balls first in flour, then in the egg, then the panko
Arrange the coated balls in the air fryer basket.
Air fry until golden brown and crisp.
Serve hot as an appetizer or snack, and watch them disappear!
