This is a different take on the pigs in a blanket – sort of a wrapped jalapeño popper. My sister and I were talking about food and bacon and my bumper crop of jalapeño this year and our conversation led to this idea.
Hungry yet? Well let’s get cookin’…
What you need:
- 4 large jalapeño peppers
- 8 strips of pepper jack, cheddar or cream cheese – about 4 oz.
- 8 slices of bacon
- 8 refrigerator crescent rolls (one package)
How to Do it:
Cut each pepper in half lengthwise. Remove stem and seeds. (If you like them hot, leave some seeds in them).
Place a piece of cheese inside each pepper half.
Wrap each on with bacon,
Put parchment paper down on a cookie sheet (or you can use a shallow terracotta dish) and place each pepper on the sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes – until the dough is golden brown.
Allow to cool some before serving.
