These are always requested for every gathering I go to. I make without bread crumbs.

can't make enough of these. They leave the table so quickly! I have used 1/2 bread crumbs and 1/2 panko. Very good.

I used low fat cream cheese, cheddar and mozzarella, and turkey bacon. It brought the calorie count down to 151 per 3 poppers. I also used Panko bread crumbs. Perfect!!
