Step 1: Buttermilk Pancake Batter

For the breading, I used a sweet buttermilk pancake batter. You can use your favorite one just make sure it is not too viscous. If it is add some milk until it smoothly runs off the spatula. This is the recipe I used:
1c Flour
pinch Salt
1/2c Sugar
2/3c Buttermilk (a bit more than I usually use for these pancakes)

Stir dry ingredients together before adding the buttermilk. Mix until completely combined and then set aside.

That looks amazing! I'm gonna have to try this out. Is it possible to do this without the prosciutto or would the filling pop out too easily? Maybe an alternative? I just don't buy it often =]

thanks for the compliment.
the benefit of the prosciutto is its ability to hold everything together but be fully cooked so that you don't have to worry about different cooking times (e.g. the batter vs. something like bacon).
however, i did try without prosciutto (since i ran out before wrapping each popper). i am pleased to say that everything held just fine. because the batter is fairly viscous and pretty sticky, it stays on the popper without sliding off (see the furthest popper in the picture above). because it cooks quickly (like a donut), it hardens and keeps everything in)

tl;dr if you don't want to use prosciutto, the batter holds everything in just fine.
Thanks, good to know. If/when I do get around to buying it, I'd like to try out your actually recipe. But for now, I'll be trying this w/o.
