You know it’s really hard to do a bacon recipe when you don’t eat bacon!   It’s not that I don’t like bacon, I really love it!  But about 5 years ago, I somehow became allergic to all pork, beef and lamb, so bacon had to be struck from my meal plans.  No BLT, no bacon & eggs, no BBQ pork…. so sad!!   That said, we were headed to a friends house for a cookout and I needed to take something for an appetizer.  And since I also needed to include a bacon recipe on Foodwhirl, these seemed like the perfect thing.  I made a few extra sans bacon for me and all was good! 

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

  • 10 – 15 Jalapeno peppers (seranos also work well)
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 5-10 bacon slices cut in half (or thirds if the peppers are small)

Heat the oven to 400 F.   Slice the peppers in half longwise and remove the seeds.  Fill the insides with cream cheese, and wrap a peice of bacon around the pepper.   

Place them on a cookie sheet (lined with foil for a quick cleanup) and bake for about 15 – 20 minutes.  Then turn on the broiler for about 5 minutes to crisp up the bacon and lightly brown the cheese and peppers.   Remove and serve. 

Be careful with the first couple you eat – they can be really hot!

PS: Thanks to my friend, Kat, for taking the photos!!

    I make these, too. They are easier with bacon bits. And if you can’t eat bacon, bacos work. Also look for tiny red and yellow baby bell peppers. They are beautiful mixed in with the jalapenos and they are not hot.

    Thanks Bonnie! Great ideas! Funny you should mention the small red & yellow peppers. I just saw Giada make some similar on her show last weekend. Of course she made them more italian with ricotta and parmesan cheese, and they looked wonderful. Thanks again!
