These were devine. I used November! garden Jalapenos and they were on the small side so I cut the bacon in thirds, just enough to go round and secure with toothpick and I also cooked them longer so the bacon was crisp but boy were they GOOD! This a great little snack to add to other little snacks that you can make ahead of time and serve for company. I NEVER write reviews butyou really have to try these. So much better than the fried poppers.
These are delicious! I did what many others reviewers suggested by wrapping half a slice of bacon around half a stuffed pepper. To help keep the filling from leaking out I rolled the stuffed pepper in Panko crumbs before wrapping it with the bacon. It helped create a bit of crunch and gave the gooey filling something to stick to. I only needed a few tablespoons of crumbs so it was still carb friendly. Enjoy!
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Appetizer Recipe
6 Jalapeno peppers
1 8oz block cream cheese
12 slices of bacon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Slice the jalapenos in half lengthwise and scrape out the seeds and white rind.
Pat the jalapeno dry and spread cream cheese inside it, the amount is up to you….we tend to be generous with it.
Lay a piece of bacon down, place the stuffed jalapeno on it and gently wrap the bacon around it.
Secure the bacon with a toothpick or two.
Line up the wrapped jalapenos on a baking sheet and cook on 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 20 minutes.
Cook until the bacon is done to your taste... some prefer it crispy, some don’t.
