Baked Panko Crusted Jalapeno Poppers

I know there are lots of stuffed jalapeno recipes out there and most of them 
are really good. I mean, it's pretty hard to mess up cheese stuffed in jalapenos


Well, this is another one.

I really like the crunch and texture you get  from the topping, and my hubby said 
they're the best he's ever tasted. I thought, wow...and they're not even fried.

Fast, easy, great crunch without frying and super delicious.

Baked Panko Crusted Jalapeno Poppers

6 Jalapenos, cut in half and seeded
5 oz cream cheese, softened
1-2 slices of Peppered Bacon (regular bacon will work)
2 tbsp Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tbsp panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
Pinch of Salt and Pepper
2 tsp olive oil

Pre-heat oven to 400*.

Cook bacon in skillet until just crisp, remove to a paper towel lined plate and let drain. Chop into small pieces. I think I used about 1 1/2 slices.

Fill jalapeno halves with cream cheese.

In a small bowl mix together bread crumbs, panko, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Stir to combine then drizzle crumb mixture with oil and distribute through crumb mixture by rubbing crumbs together with fingertips. Mix in finely chopped bacon.

Cover tops of jalapenos with crumb mixture, pressing lightly and drizzle lightly with more olive oil if desired. Reduce oven to 375*  and cook for 15-20 minutes or until poppers are tender and top is crisp.

  3. this recipe looks wonderful but my husband would die if I made them... he is not one for hot peppers and I love that they are not fried. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday and I hope you will join us next week with some more great recipes.
