Peppers in a Blanket


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,

then a crescent roll. 20150920_085243_resized







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.

Makes 8 appetizers

    This is much better than pigs in a blanket. I love jalapeno poppers and this lookslike it would be very similar. Thanks for the recipe. Linda @Crafts a la mode Pinned
