Jalapeño Poppers

6 jalapeños
1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 large egg
1/3 cup unflavored dry breadcrumbs
1 pinch salt

Note: cheddar and cream cheese can be subsituted by goat cheese

Preheat oven to 325 F. Lightly oil bak­ing sheet and set aside. Remove contents from jalapeños. If too difficult, cut them in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membranes. Place on oiled bak­ing sheet.
Mix together the Cheddar and cream cheese and stuff the jalapeños with the mixture.
In a bowl, beat the egg until frothy. In another bowl, stir together breadcrumbs and salt. Roll each jalapeño in egg, then in breadcrumbs.
Place on a baking sheet. Bake until tender and browned, for about 30 minutes. Serve warm, with sour cream for dipping.
