    These are a nice twist on baked poppers! I add shredded habanero cheese to the mixture & omit the butter totally – no need for it. Just roll them right in the Parmesan cheese and bake! VERY addicting. :)

    Fantastic! (every time) I've made these a number of times this Summer & Fall using a bumper crop of our jalapeno peppers. We like spicy & I now add some red pepper to the filling. I also roll them in a combination of Parmesan-Romano cheese which is finely shreaded. The flavor is a little more intense. Making them on parchment paper makes clean-up easier but using a silicone baking mat is the best. Great for company. I made the filling the day before. The next day I fixed them, covered, put in fridge and baked later. I needed to add a few more min. to the baking time. They were loved by all! The recipe was wanted by many. Thank you. Thank you.

    I could not quite figure out how to wrap these things. They were however delicious. Thanks.

    These are excellent........try them with the new butter and garlic crescent rolls. I omitted the butter and they turned out great.

    Boy were these a hit! I ended up making them with several different kinds of cheese. Very very good.
