Knockoff Spicy Jack Wedges

Who likes O'Charley's? Who doesn't like all the calories that come with a delicious, mouth-watering meal there? Me too and that is why I decided to experiment and create my own healthier version of my favorite Spicy Jack Wedges!

They're crispy, spicy and healthier than the deep-fried counterpart!

1 large egg
1/3 cup bread crumbs
1 8-ounce package of pepper jack cheese
dash of red pepper/paprika

1. Crack egg into a bowl and whisk, slice cheese into eight one-ounce slices and then cut diagonally so that each one-ounce slice is now consistent of two diagonal pieces. Thus the entire eight ounce package yields 16 wedges. Dip each wedge in the egg mixture.

2. In a separate bowl mix 1/3 cup of bread crumbs and your seasonings. Remove wedges from egg mixture and coat with bread crumbs.

3. Spray a cooking sheet and line each wedge on the sheet.

4. Cook on broil (4-6 inches from heat) for 5 minutes or until the wedges turn golden.

Notes: It is super hard to keep the cheese from baking out of the coating. I think these do taste great, but nothing can replace O'Charley's spicy jack wedges. These are a great replacement though!
