These spicy, crunchy treats will make your Halloween party sizzle! This recipe from Rachael Ray is one of my family's favorites, you can choose peppers with the heat level you prefer, we like a blend of semi-hot banana peppers and jalapenos. They are breaded and baked in a cheesy panko topping. These pepper fingers will make a great Halloween night in watching scary movies, or, the recipe is easily doubled to serve a crowd.

Step 1: Gather ingredients

You'll need:

a 13-inch x 18-inch baking sheet with a cooling rack fitted inside, spray the rack with a nonstick baking spray. (I line the baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.) 

1 1/2 lbs. peppers of your choice, jalapeno, poblano, banana, etc.
1 cup flour, divided
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 
1 cup Panko breadcrumbs (you may need to add more towards the end) 
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (please use the real deal)
Salt and ground black pepper
