Ingredients

Dipping Sauce:

Directions

Dipping Sauce:

In a large bowl combine the peas, shallot, bell pepper and ham. Mix in cornstarch, egg whites, salt and pepper, to taste.

For the dipping sauce:

In a small saucepan, combine cranberry sauce, syrup and garlic powder. Heat through until warm. Cover and keep warm.

Heat oil in a Dutch oven or deep-fryer until it reaches 325 degrees F. Working in batches and using 2 teaspoons, carefully slide small portions (bites) of the pea mixture into the hot oil. Note: The pea mixture is not very firm, so you have to slide them into the hot oil

very slowly to they will keep their shape. Deep-fry for approximately 5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. Remove from oil and drain on a paper towel lined baking tray.

Serve alongside warm cranberry dipping sauce.
