Baked Jalapeno Poppers:
• 12 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise, stems, seeds and membranes removed
• 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
• 1 ½ cups grated Monterey Jack or mozzarella cheese
• ½ teaspoon ground cumin
• ½ teaspoon cayenne, or less, to taste
• 2 large eggs
• 2 tablespoons milk
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
• ½ cup all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside. In a bowl, stir cream cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, cumin and cayenne. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. In a third dish, combine the flour and salt and pepper. Spread 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture into the middle of each jalapeno half. One at a time, dredge in the flour, dip into the egg mixture, then dredge in the panko cumbs, pressing to coat. Place the coated peppers, cut side up, on the prepared baking sheet and bake until the filling is runny and the crust is golden, about 30 minutes.
