Baked Ham and Cheese Jalapenos

No Friday night would be complete without a great munchie... adult beverage totally optional:@) I debated about stopping for pizza but decided to go home instead where I was greeted by some forgotten jalapenos in the fridge. Had leftover ham slices in the freezer and always have shredded cheddar...
I'm so glad I didn't stop for that pizza!
Baked Ham and Cheese Jalapenos-no real recipe here folks:
1. Slice the 3"-ish peppers in half and scoop out the seeds and veins-I use a melon baller.
2. Dice the ham small and add to the peppers.
3. Sprinkle some cheddar on top of the ham.
4. Sprinkle some Panko breadcrumbs on top of cheese-I just used a little for crunch.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until cheese has melted and turned golden brown.
6. Sprinkle lightly with kosher salt once out of the oven.

Wishing you a weekend full of fun discoveries:@)

  11. Nom, nom, nom......much easier than trying to coat them like we used to do. I like the melon baller tip too. Kitchen gadgets often have many other applications than the one we bought them for.
