Jalapeno peppers Bacon Cream cheese Cheddar cheese Milk Flour Seasoning Breadcrumbs Oil

Before you begin, don’t forget to bring your cream cheese to room temperature and prepare your peppers by cutting them in half and removing the seeds using gloves. Oh, and prepare a baking sheet with a rack and set it aside for now.

Step 1

Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon pieces. Stir until well blended and fill each half pepper with this mixture.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, combine flour and seasoning. In a third bowl, add the milk. Last, add the breadcrumbs into a fourth bowl. Set aside.

Step 3

If your jalapenos still have the stem on them, use it to grab, otherwise, as best as you can grab one end of the pepper and dip in the flour mixture, then the milk, then back into the flour mixture. Lay on the rack on the baking sheet and continue dipping the remaining peppers.

Step 4

Allow the peppers to rest on the baking sheet for 10-15 minutes. Do not skip this step!

Step 5

Dip the jalapenos back into the milk, then into the breadcrumbs. Place them back onto the rack to rest for a few extra minutes. Meanwhile, heat the oil. Before frying, you’re going to want to dip them one last time into the milk then add another coating of breadcrumbs and rest for 5 minutes (last time, I promise!).

Step 6

Work in batches, add each popper to the hot oil and fry until they turn golden brown.

Step 7

Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and allow to rest a couple of minutes before digging in!
