 Jalapeno poppers
So easy to make and great for snacks or party nibbles. Make sure you have removed all the seeds before eating, unless you like your food really hot. 

2 rashers

300 g cream cheese, softened

150g cheddar cheese, grated

6 jalapenos, top cut off and seeded

2 eggs

120g plain flour

115g breadcrumbs

5 tsp olive oil

Sour cream to serve

Heat ½ tsp of oil in saucepan and cook the rashers until crispy. When cooked, cut into tiny pieces and set aside.

Make sure you have cut the tops off the jalapenos and have removed all the seeds.

In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, cheese and bacon together.

Spoon this mixture into the jalapeno peppers.

Beat the eggs together in one bowl and pour the flour into another. In a third bowl pour in the breadcrumbs.

Roll the jalapenos in the flour before dipping into the eggs. Roll in the breadcrumbs until fully covered.

Heat the rest of the oil in a frying pan on a high temperature.

Carefully fry the poppers in the oil for about 5 minutes each side. You can cook a couple at a time, depending on how big your pan is.

Dab with a kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.

Serve with the sour cream.
