Jalapeno Popper

Happy Friday, 2 days before Super Bowl 2022! 


Haha, even though my greeting sounds like I’m a huge fan of football, I enjoy it by hearing my neighbor’s cheering every year. The only time I watched the NFL Super Bowl was back in…maybe 7 years ago? One of my colleagues from my workplace invited me to a Super Bowl viewing party, and I didn’t have any specific plan that day so I and other friends went and watched it together.  


Funny enough, only a few people out of around 20 people at the party knew the football rule. Instead of cheering players by looking at a huge screen, we enjoyed potluck food. When people watch sports, they need some refreshing drinks to soothe their throat from yelling, and as long as there’s drinks, we need some food too! 


Today’s my food is one of the most popular bar foods. The spicy jalapeno holding creamy yummy cheese fillings is easy to pop in their mouth. The flavor matches perfectly with ice cold beer/seltzer water, lemonade, coke…anything! Even if you’re not planning to watch football this Sunday, still this jalapeno popper can be your next fancy appetizer to make you smile!

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Cream the cheese until they are soft.
  3. Combine cheese with carrot, parsley, garlic powder and black pepper.
  4. Slice the jalapeno lengthwise and remove seeds.
  5. Transfer cheese to the jalapeno and sprinkle some panko crumbs.
  6. Bake them in the oven for 15 min.
  7. Sprinkle some more parsley and enjoy!


<Cooking Tips>

  • I recommend using Japanese panko crumbs since the crumbs’ size is bigger than the one from the Italian/American brand, so the texture gets nice and crunchy.
  • If you don’t have lemon pepper seasoning, substitute with 1 teaspoon lemon juice and black pepper.

    That’s a very delicious snack! 🤩
    You’re absolutely right about the breadcrumbs. When I lived in Europe, we only had the breadcrumbs that are almost like sand. I first felt a bit uncomfortable when I bought the bigger ones here in Indonesia but now I prefer them. No matter for what you use them, they give the food a crispiness you can’t achieve with the sand-like breadcrumbs. 😍👍

      Haha we’re totally opposite about the breadcrumbs experience🤣 When I first opened the package of European version of bread crumbs, I thought someone smashed them so hard so that’s why they look sandy😂 You probably know better than me, but Schnetzel was so good to let me learn another similar food in different culture😊✨😋💕
