Hold The Fat, Not The Flavor - Baked Jalapeno Poppers

Baked Jalapeno Poppers

  • 16 jalapenos, split lengthwise, seeds and membranes removed
  • 1 (8 ounce) package low-fat cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 1/2 cups cornflakes
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, plus one egg white, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
In a bowl, combine cream cheese and mozzarella, and salt. Use a spoon to fill the cavity of each jalapeno with the mixture, pressing down to pack it in.
In a food processor or in a sealable plastic baggy, finely crush cornflakes. Season with salt and pepper. Dredge each jalapeno first in the flour, then the egg (letting the excess drip off), and then completely coat in cornflakes. Place on baking sheet and lightly spray with cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
