When peppers are cool enough to handle, gently rub off the skin

Cut a slit in one side of the pepper and remove the seeds, keeping the pepper whole; set aside

In a bowl, mix together the mozzarella, monterey jack, garlic, thyme, oregano, cilantro/parsley, salt, and pepper

gently stuff the mixture into the peppers, securing them with toothpicks

Chill for 30 minutes

Beat egg and milk together

Roll stuffed peppers in egg and milk mixture, then roll in cornmeal

Fry peppers for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown; do not crowd the pan

Note: The peppers can be prepared up to the point of being dredged in cornmeal and fried up to two days in advance and refrigerated, tightly covered in plastic wrap; dredge with milk/egg and cornmeal and fry just prior to serving
