Baked Jalapeño Poppers

How to Make Baked Jalapeño Poppers

Classic game day and barroom favorite gets a tasty upgrade with a trip through the smoker instead of the deep fryer.

Baked Jalapeño Poppers Recipe


  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 4 cups shredded parmesan cheese
  • 2/3 cup fresh jalapeños (diced)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups panko bread crumbs


Mix all ingredients except panko in a large bowl. Form into small balls (mixture should yield 20 - 30 poppers) and roll in panko. Make sure each ball is coated evenly. Place the poppers onto a baking sheet or into a small foil pan.

Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 (or other grill) to 350°F. Set your grill up in baking mode, or set it up for indirect heat. Bake the jalapeño poppers for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
