Baked Panino Jalapeño Poppers

Baked instead of fried, these spicy poppers stuffed with hard salami and Pepperjack cheese paninos are simply irresistible.


7 jalapeño peppers, halved and seeded

1 pkg (5 oz) Fiorucci Spicy Cheese Paninos, halved

3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp Parmesan cheese

1 tbsp finely chopped fresh parsley

1/2 tsp paprika

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs, beaten


Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour


Preheat oven to 350˚F. Stuff each jalapeño half with piece of panino. In shallow dish, combine panko, olive oil, Parmesan, parsley and paprika.


Dredge poppers first in flour, then in eggs, then coat in panko mixture. Arrange in single layer on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.


Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown and cheese melts.



Serve with salsa or warm tomato sauce.


Panko bread crumbs make a very crispy coating but regular dry bread crumbs work just as well.
