Mashed Potato Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

These are fun when you want something totally different. Lose the bacon if you want to go vegetarian. Do the mashed potato!


  • 10 jalapeno peppers
  • 5 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 5 ounces mashed potatoes, shredded
  • 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • Olive oil for frying

Cooking Directions

  1. Remove stems from the jalapeno peppers and remove innards through the top with a pepper corer. If you do not have a corer, use a knife or very thin spoon.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, and crumbled bacon.
  3. Stuff each jalapeno with 1 ounce each of the cheesy mashed potato mixture.
  4. In a shallow bowl, beat the egg.
  5. Dip the stuffed jalapeno peppers into the egg, then coat with bread crumbs.
  6. In a deep frying pan, add about 1 inch of oil and heat thoroughly.
  7. Deep fry jalapeno poppers about 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Or, lose the oil and bake at 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until peppers are heated through and turning golden brown.
  8. Serve with sour cream!
