these are very good, weight watchers has a similar recipe too. i used ritz crackers the first time to bread them and bread crumbs the second time, both were very good. i also used egg. instead of regular mayo i used chipotle mayo and sharp cheddar... my husband LOVES them!
Excellent. Loved the panko. I didn't use the egg substitute, but used 1 egg mixed with a little water. Not much of the panko stuck to the outside of the pepper, but did fine on the filling side. I added a little onion powder to the filling which increased the flavor. I baked these closer to 45-50 minutes to get the panko to brown, which made the peppers a little overdone. May increase the cooking temp some next time. Made for New Kids tag game
