Panko bread crumbs give these baked-not-fried jalapeños an addictively crispy texture. Boursin has the ideal smooth and creamy consistency for filling the peppers; look for it in the deli section of your supermarket.

Wearing rubber gloves, cut jalapeños in half lengthwise; scrape out seeds and membranes, leaving stems intact.

Mash together garlic-and-herb cheese, Cheddar cheese, milk, lemon juice, dry mustard and pepper; spoon into pepper halves. Arrange on baking sheet. Toss panko with oil until moistened; divide among peppers. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 24 hours.)

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until peppers are soft and panko is golden, about 40 minutes.

Makes about 20 pieces.
