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.
My mother-in-law requests I bring these to EVERY family get together thru out the year! My favorite time to make them is when I have fresh pepers from my garden.YUMMY!
