Everything Is Better With Bacon.

Seriously.  Everything is better with bacon.  I bet bacon wrapped bacon is better than plain bacon.

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers

I took two packages of cram cheese, and put them in my stand mixer, with 3 finely sliced green onions.  Take the jalapenos, and slice them lengthwise.  Remove the seeds and veins.  I used a spoon at first, but the dull pressure cause the juice to explode from the pepper and burned my eyes.  No fun.  I switched to a sharp paring knife, which worked well.

Then, take a spoon and fill the little pepper canoes with your cream cheese/onion mixture.

Take a slab of bacon and cut it in thirds.  Take on piece of bacon and wrap it around each pepper.  Secure the bacon with a toothpick.

Repeat as often as you like.  But I guarantee these things will fly off the plate.  Make plenty.  They wont last.  Put the poppers on a cooling rack, on a sheet pan.  Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes, or until the bacon is the consistency you want.  I prefer mine a little crisper.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool a little.  Then, twist the toothpick, and gently pull it out of the pepper.  Then, try to resist eating them before you make it to the party. (I’ve already had 3)

    I’m salivating. Gotta try this! Soon! Thanks for sharing your culinary delights. Hmmm. Would a little Cholula be good drizzled over them?
