Jalapeno Pepper Poppers
Thanks to Rocky Jay for sharing this recipe.

~ 20 jalapeno peppers
~ 1 - 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
~ 1 tbsp garlic powder
~ 3/4 - 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, pepper jack is good too!
~ 1/2 - 3/4 cup bacon bits
~ 2 tbsp chopped chives or finely chopped onion
~ Panko bread crumbs

Slice peppers in two lengthwise and remove seeds. Leave some or all of the “meat” depending on how hot you want them.

Place the cream cheese in a bowl and mash it around with a fork.

Add the garlic powder, shredded cheese, bacon bits and the chives. Mix well. You can adjust the cheese and bacon bits to your taste.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Stuff each pepper half with the cheese mixture. Place on sheet.

Sprinkle each pepper with the Panko crumbs.

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until the tops are Panko crumbs are browned.

You can grill these if you want. Just use foil on your grates.

Remove and let cool a couple of minutes the dig in!

"You can cut the recipe in half very easily. Use 10 peppers, 1/2 pack cream cheese, etc."
