I agree with Pioneer Woman; I have no idea what to call these..."thingies". All I know is that they are so good that I might trade my first born for a platter of them. The juices of the bacon seep down into the cream cheese and are a perfect foil for the subtle spice of the jalapeno peppers.
Using 4 oz (half of a block) of plain cream cheese, smear cream cheese in each pepper half.
Cut six slices of bacon into thirds.
Wrap one piece of bacon around each jalapeno pepper and secure with a toothpick.
Place the jalapenos on a rack set over a baking sheet.
Put the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. If the bacon has not browned to your liking, crank on the broiler for a few minutes. Serve and enjoy. Warning: your eyes may roll back in your head.
And here I thought that popper could not get any better... but wrap them in bacon!
this looks interestingly yummy! i showed it to my hubby and he was amused. jalapeno, cheese and pork, our kind of combination!
That is an awesome party food! I think I may just have to try these out this week at my 4th of July celebration! They look SO good - and I love how say the bacon juices seep into the cream cheese... hello stomach growl!
What a great twist on the popper! And we all know that bacon makes everything better!
I have made this recipe several times and everyone loves it! Just make sure you wear gloves when dealing with that many peppers. I didn't and the results were disastrous. You NEVER want to go there!
OK now I have to make these. Today! I heart jalapeño poppers.
Smokey, creamy, spicy, and easy...a winning combination in my book 😉
Such a creative idea, looks amazing! Well done
oooh I'm already sweating, imagining how hot those treats can be!!!
The BBQ Grail
In the BBQ world, when done outside on a smoker, they are referred to as ABTs (Atomic Buffalo Turds). Yes, I know. Not very appetizing sounding, but they are amazingly tasty.
A tip for those who like the jalapeno flavor but can stand the heat is after cutting and half and de-seeding and de-veining, soak them in Sprint over night. This will take the heat out and still leave the flavor.
The heated Sprite then makes a great spritz for pork or chicken on the grill.
Thanks for posting this - This is a great appetizer for upcoming cookouts!
You made my evening! Bacon and peppers are two of my favorite ingredients. I saw this post earlier in the day, and purchased the ingredients on the way home this afternoon. The poppers were delicious. I am waiting on a second batch in the oven while I write this comment. Thanks!
I think you should re-post these on the kick off of college football season which is coming soon. Ohhhh, I cant wait that long, they look way to good I'll have to make them sooner. Great finger food!
I'm gonna have to make these for my husband! What a great finger food, her recipes are so yummy.
Poppers are good, jalapeños are good, bacon is definitely good. Perfect appetizers, which means i have to eat more than one. That's totally fine my me.
Looks like you've made a bunch there. Got any more?
My eyes are rolling back in my head already just reading about this!!!! I have got to try this!
I love PW. I actually have two recipes of hers on my site. Her steak sandwich for her husband and her meatloaf....Both turned out incredible. She is a genius.
This looks wonderful....Great job!!!
They look delicious......for sure worth a try!
I saw these a while back and bookmarked them - they look just amazing! Yours turned out great! I really want to try making them this summer! 🙂
