So I took this very wise advice, put off my diet another day and made these yesterday!
If you have the cookbook, you have seen this recipe and love it too.
Go to her blog or get her cookbook and discover how fun cooking can be.
Anyways, back to the Jalapeno Poppers.
These little gems are so wonderful. I've only made them a couple of times because they are so special and I never want to get tired of them.
The last time I made these was up at Dusty's grandparents cabin near Glacier Park for the 4th of July. I had the tiniest kitchen to work in and the oldest oven in the history of man, but I made them and they were delicious. Now I have given Dusty's family another reason to love me...I can make good appetizers!
Here is what you are going to need for 18 Jalapeno Poppers:
-4 oz Cream Cheese
-1/4 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
-1/2 Green Onion-sliced
-9 slices of Bacon-cut into halves
-Eye Goggles and/or Gloves
First preheat your oven to 275 degrees.
I highly recommend putting on these good lookin' goggles to protect your eyes.
These were my old Chemistry goggles, but now that I'm done with my degree, they are my kitchen goggles. Dusty thinks I'm a real babe when I put these on! ;)
Wrap the jalapenos with the bacon slices and secure them with toothpicks. Don't wrap them too tightly because the bacon with shrink when it cooks!
Using a handy dandy basting brush...
Baste the bacon on all sides of the jalapeno popper...don't be afraid to slather it is BBQ sauce!
Then bake them on a baking sheet for 1 hour until the bacon is cooked and sizzling.
Your kitchen is going to smell wonderful!
Serve them on a platter and dig in!
