Baked Jalapeno poppers

Jalapeno Poppers is most likely considered to be an Americanized version of the classic Mexican dish. The combined taste spicy jalapeno and and the mild flavored filling makes it delectable.
Ingredients :
4 Jalapenos , 2 tbspn cream cheese , salt and pepper to taste , 1/4th tspn garlic powder.
For breading : 1 egg , 1/2 cup bread crumbs.
Procedure :
Preheat the oven at 200 degrees.
Split the Jalapenos lengthwise into two. Deseed the jalapenos to reduce the heat (Keeping the seeds tends to make them spicy. You may keep the seeds if it suits your palate).
Mix the cream cheese + garlic powder + salt and pepper together to make the filling. Evenly fill in this mixture into the deseeded jalapenos.
Whip one egg to coat the jalapenos. This helps the breading to hold onto the jalapenos. (Those who prefer excluding egg out of their diet may use a mixture of All Purpose flour + water).
Dip the jalapenos in the egg and then roll it in the bread crumbs. Dip it again in the egg and then in the bread crumbs. This ensures a thick cover on the jalapenos. Place the breaded jalapenos on a baking sheet and bake it for 25 minutes at 200 degrees.
