Begin by cutting the stems end off jalapeño peppers with paring knife. Carefully remove seeds and white membrane. Stuff peppers with cheese and parsley. Heat oil in deep-fat fryer or large pot to 375 degrees. Meanwhile, place eggs in small bowl. Place crumbs in shallow pan. Drop 4 peppers in eggs; toss to coat. Using fork, lift 1 pepper at a time out of egg, shaking off excess. Drop into crumbs; toss to coat. Place on sheet pan. When all peppers are coated, set aside for 15 minutes to set up and dry. Repeat with remaining peppers. With slotted spoon, slip peppers, 5 to 6 at a time, into hot oil. Fry 2-3 minutes, until golden. Remove to platter lined with paper toweling to drain. Repeat with remaining peppers. Serve immediately and enjoy.
