These are very good! The 'batter' using the bread crumbs is a bit messy. Use a fork to spear peppers and dredge though the egg, flour and bread crumbs accordingly. Also can be made a day ahead.

"Used panco bread crumbs, added fresh minced garlic and crispy cooked bacon to the cheese mix and it turned out amazingly! Definitely recommend. Also I made mushroom poppers too and they were also good."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
10 Fresh green and/or red jalapenos
1 c Cheddar cheese; shredded
4 oz Cream cheese; softened
1/2 ts Dried Italian Seasoning
1 Eggs
1/8 c milk
1/2 c Flour; for dredging
1/2 c Seasoned bread crumbs

Original recipe makes 10

Servings  

Preparation

Cut each pepper in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and membranes*. When removing the stem, be sure to leave tops intact as to form a bowl.

Stir together cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and Italian seasoning in a medium mixing bowl! Spoon some of the cheese mixture into each pepper half, slightly mounding it.

Beat together eggs and milk in a small mixing bowl. Dip each pepper into flour mixture, then dip each pepper into egg mixture and roll in bread crumbs! Shake off crumbs, then dip in egg and bread crumbs one more time. Place pepper halves, filled side up, on a large baking sheet covered with foil. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or till tender and heated through. Serve with guacamole or sour cream if desired. Makes 20 poppers. If you should decide to deep fry, make sure poppers are well chilled so the cheese doesnt ooze all over your fryer.

Recipe by: Pat Minotti (with some help from Mark Perkins)

*Note that you should probably use rubber gloves when seeding spicy peppers.

I used panko bread crumbs as a substitute for the flour. Very good.

Pretty hot! But good. Serve with a sour-cream based dip.
