If you want to make really good baked jalapeno poppers make these Emeril's jalapeno poppers.
If all you really care about is the jalapeno and cheese, like me, make nekked jalapeno poppers like this:
Marlene at Isom's Orchard knew we were going to make jalapeno poppers so she gave us the freshest "just picked today" and BIGGEST jalapenos she had! They were huge and yummy!
I piled the cheese mixture in the jalapeno. Put them on the grill until the cheese is melted and the jalapeno is slightly softened. Or just bake them like in the recipe link above.
Forget the breading, who needs it anyway? Who's playing? It doesn't matter, I'm cheering for the tailgate!
Serve on the tailgate at game time. Roll Tide.
