Our Friday posts are going to stray off ‘theme’ and be about anything and everything. Welcome to casual Friday!
I don’t know about you, but I have a very important football game to watch this weekend at a friend’s house. My mission is to bring an appetizer. This is a good option! Have a wonderful weekend friends! I hope it includes good food, good friends and great games!
Bacon, cheese and jalapeno are incredible flavors mixed together. These are a game day favorite of mine! This delicious appetizer was posted by The Brown EyedBaker. Whenever I use jalapenos I always put gloves on my hands. If you don’t have any you can always use plastic bags from the grocery store or resealable plastic bags. If your hands burn from touching a pepper pour salt in a bowl and rub it in your hands and then wash them with the salt. Repeat several times. (Done that. Ouch.)
Yield: 40 appetizers
Prep Time: 20 minutes | Bake Time: 20 to 30 minutes
20 whole, fresh jalapeños
2 8-oz blocks of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1 to 2 pounds of bacon
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet and set aside.
2. Cut the jalapeños in half, lengthwise. Remove the seeds and membranes. Stuff each jalapeño half with cream cheese. Wrap each jalapeño half with bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. If after 20 minutes the bacon doesn’t look brown enough, turn on the broiler for a couple of minutes to finish. Just keep a close eye so they don’t burn! Serve immediately or at room temperature.
