Sunday was a pretty lazy day. We had set aside the morning to finally get our garden in. I am really hoping that we aren't too late but we'll see. We planted a variety of tomatoes and some zucchini, peas, arugula, basil, parsley, oregano, cilantro and just for fun some sun flower seeds. Every year I swear I will keep a diary of what works and what doesn't but I never, ever do. When will I ever learn...
2 packages (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of cheddar cheese, grated
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
12 jalapenos, split lengthwise, seeds and membrane removed
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 box panko breading
- In a medium bowl, mix the cream cheese, and cheddar cheese Spoon this mixture into the jalapeño pepper halves.
- Mix the flour with the black pepper, salt, paprika and garlic powder
- Put the milk and flour mix into two separate small bowls. Dip the stuffed jalapeños first into the milk then into the flour, making sure they are well coated with each. Allow the coated jalapeños to dry for about 10 minutes.
- Dip the jalapeños in milk again and roll them through the breadcrumbs. Allow them to dry, then repeat to ensure the entire surface of the jalapeño is coated.
- Place in the freezer to chill for about 20 minutes before frying.
- In a deep pot, heat the oil to 365 degrees F ( 180 degrees C). Deep fry the coated jalapeños 2 to 3 minutes each, until golden brown. Remove and let drain on a paper towel.
These sound delicious Judy. It's nice to have a special lunch:D
Yum! You are ambitious. Did you make extra and store them in the freezer for your next craving?
Stop by for some pumpkin bread.
How fantastic that you can have your own garden Judy!!! Will you show us the plants when they are a bit grown?
Could I have a tapa of those Jalapeños please?
Hi Val-It was really nice and something the girls wouldn't eat at all!
Hey luckyme-yes I did freeze some extra.
Hey Nuria-I will keep you all posted on the gardens progress!
My hubby would devour those! He loves the kick from the poppers!
Way 'ta go Judy, they look fab with the Panko. Also, the creamed cheese is needed to bind the cheddar I found...now I want mo'!
HI! Pardon my ignorance but can you plant vegetables in October? That would be so cool! Let me know and I will be sure to start mine! Unless you are like in Australia or Argentina...
I just realized. You are in Australia! lol me...
Hi Patsyk-These were nice and kicky!
Hey Peter-The Panko made such a great crust on them and I loved the cream cheese and cheddar mixed!
Hi Claudette-I am in SW Florida and our weather is almost a carbon copy of Australias. I think Brisbane is even the same zone as us!
I love jalapeno poppers and those look better than anything I've ever had in a bar! Yum!
You go girl!!! Wow these look so great - I love that you use Panko as I just discovered those last year and they are so wonderful to cook with !!
I love jalapeno poppers but never made them myself. They look so pretty and delicious in those pictures :)
These sound soooo stinkin' good! Unfortunately, I may be too lazy to make them myself. However, I did make your banana muffins the other night and they were delish. Thanks.
I'm loving the "bite" shot. I don't think mine look that good and I definitely didn't get a bite shot. You are totally quick w/ your posts. Impressive. I've got a line that would rival planes waiting to land at LAX!
Oh, what I'd give for just one right now...I do miss some comforts from home. :o(
I'll take a giant pile of them with a beer please.
This is some of my favorite finger food and they look excellent. I tried doing something like this once before, but I didn't have a lot of luck deep frying. I'll have to try this approach out!
sounds great ... I want your poppers ... lol!
Oh, can I have one please? I love love love jalapeno poppers!! Yours look so delicious!
Those poppers look great! They are perfectly golden brown.
I finally got around to making the jalapeno poppers for game day here in Alabama, and to my surprise, they were a huge hit. I for one, do not like HOT stuff, but the one bite I took of the pepper set my mouth on fire, I am a woose, haha.
But I scooped the delicious stuffing out and the coating and it was delicious. The went like hot cakes, and now I have committed to making them again. :)
Wow Kat! I am so glad that everyone liked them. They were really good!
Yummy! My hubby isn't a fan of cream cheese however, so I though I would use a different type of cheese instead.
Yum, a delicious appetizer or lunch! Did you get many peppers in your garden?
I am about to try this recipe, I wanted to make jalepeno poppers, so I bought some fresh jalepenos the other day, but needed to still look up a good recipe. I planned on having to go back out to the store to get all the other ingredients, but luckily, I have all the other stuff I need. That's awesome!
Anyways, I haven't finished 1 of the 1st steps, which is to cut & clean the peppers. I just wanted to let those of you (us) that have never dealt with jalepenos...BEWARE!!! When your cleaning & cutting these peppers...DO NOT TOUCH YOUR MOUTH, EYES OR ANY OTHER part of your body for that matter...IT WILL BURN LIKE YOU'VE NEEEVVVEEERRR FELT A BURN BEFORE. Even if you love hot sauce...I'm warning you.
I am still feeling the burn on the outside of my lips & it's been about 15 minutes! Not kidding~ Tawny Dunbar
This is a great recipe, but I am not sure what to do with all the ingredients, are the instructions complete? They are great without all the ingredients, just wondering?
Summer is around the corner and I always have more peppers than I know what to do with. You can only can so many in jars before you want something new. This recipe looks like something I will be trying and freezing. Have you ever baked them instead of frying? I tend to stay away from frying anything so I am going to try baking them first and will let you know how they turn out. Thanks for sharing I look forward to biting into this recipe.
I am in the process of making these poppers, which look delicious by the way. Bout to take out of freezer and create some deep fried goodness. Thanks for the post, I will let you know how my version turned out.

I am looking at your delicious recipe for poppers, but in the directions you say add the bacon bits, but there are no bacon bits in the list of ingredients, how much bacon bits?
