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)
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!
