Ingredients:

  • 1 egg
  • Olive oil, for drizzling on pan

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Coat a small baking dish with olive oil.
  3. Beat egg with a tablespoon of water to make an egg wash, basically.

  5. Bake until cheese is melted and the outside is crisp, maybe 10 min or so.

    • Ack! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you.

      They taste amazing. Crunchy and gooey. Good texture, in other words. Plus, I love poppers of all kinds and this one is pretty heathy considering there isn’t too much cheese, it is baked and it’s not wrapped in bacon.
