"Very yummy! Took them to a party and received many compliments and requests for the recipe."
"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!!"
"I made this wonderful recipe tonight for my husband, son and I. There were no leftovers - very delicious. Thank you for sharing. Will also make for party this weekend."
