Five Ingredients or Less: West Virginia Jalepno Poppers

I got this recipe from Woman's Day and thought I would add my own twist!


4 oz. cream cheese

2 oz sharp cheddar cheese, finely shredded

12 small jalepnos

2 large egg whites

3/4 cup corn meal

3/4 cup groundhog meat (if you cannot find road kill, sausage will do)

  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, groundhog and cheddar. Spoon into a resealable plastic bag and snip off one corner. Cut the jalapeƱos in half lengthwise, then remove and discard the seeds. Pipe the cheese mixture into the pepper halves.
  3. In a second bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy. Place the cornmeal in a shallow bowl. Dip each pepper half in the egg whites, then in the cornmeal, turning and pressing gently to help it adhere. Place the halves cheese-side up on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake until the peppers are just tender and the cornmeal is a light golden brown and crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.
