Let's Make It
Prepare Dinner in large saucepan as directed on package. Meanwhile, brown meat in skillet; drain.
Add meat, 1 cup cracker crumbs and egg to Dinner; mix well. Cool 20 min.
Shape meat mixture into 32 balls, using scant 1/4 cup for each. Insert 1 VELVEETA cube into center of each ball, completely enclosing VELVEETA cube. Roll in remaining cracker crumbs until evenly coated. Place in single layer on waxed paper-covered baking sheet.
Heat oil in deep fryer to 375ºF. Add balls, a few at a time; cook 2 min. or until golden brown. Drain well. Mix ketchup and mustard; serve with warm poppers.
How to Cook Without a Deep Fryer
Heat 3 inches of oil in large saucepan to 375ºF. Use to cook poppers as directed.
Make it Easy
