Jalapeño Peppers in a Blanket (with Bacon)

This is a different take on the pigs in a blanket – sort of a wrapped jalapeño popper.  My sister and I were talking about food and bacon and my bumper crop of jalapeño this year and our conversation led to this idea.

Hungry yet?  Well let’s get cookin’…

What you need:

  • 4 large jalapeño peppers
  • 8 strips of pepper jack, cheddar or cream cheese – about 4 oz.
  • 8 slices of bacon
  • 1 package of 8 refrigerator crescent rolls

How to Do it:

Cut each pepper in half lengthwise.  Remove stem and seeds.  (If you like them hot, leave some seeds in them).

Place a piece of cheese inside each pepper half.

then a crescent roll. 20150920_085243_resized

Put parchment paper down on a cookie sheet (or you can use a shallow terracotta dish) and place each pepper on the sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes – until the dough is golden brown.
