    In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, half and half, honey mustard, 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, garlic powder and remaining sliced jalapenos; mix together until blended and set aside.

    Pat beef mixture on wax paper into a 14 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread the cream cheese mixture into the meat rectangle. Add the sliced jalapeno poppers over the cream cheese mixture, leaving a 3/4-inch border.

    Starting at the short end, roll up in a jelly-roll fashion, removing the paper. Press the beef mixture at the ends to seal. Place the meatloaf, seam-side down, into a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
