Bacon Jalapeno Poppers

So, I got sick of going everywhere and just having crap Jalapeno poppers. With my Bacon party on the horizon I decided to invent my own popper to go with my bacon theme! They were a HUGE hit, and now everyone has been asking for the recipe, I honestly debated sharing because I am going to put this on my catering menu, but… I’ll be nice, this is something the world should enjoy lol

What you need:

  • 10-12 Fresh Whole Jalapenos, De-seeded, De-veined, and sliced long ways in 2.
  • 8oz Cream Cheese Softened
  • 5 Cloves of Fresh Garlic Roasted (see directions for roasting garlic below)
  • 3 slices of Bacon cooked to crispy
  • Raw bacon for wrapping – cut in half
  • S&P to taste
  • Smoked Gouda Cheese (1/4 for mixture, more to sprinkle on top)
  • toothpicks

What to do:

  1. In a mixing bowl, mix, cream cheese, roasted garlic (make sure its all mushed up!) cooked bacon, about 1.4 cup of smoked Gouda cheese, S&P
  2. With a small spoon or piping bag, fill the jalapenos with the mixture
  3. Wrap raw bacon around the popper, and toothpick through the sides
  4. Place Poppers in a pan (do not stack)
  5. Sprinkle more Smoked Gouda Cheese on top of each popper
  6. Bake on 350 degrees for approx. 20 minutes. or until bacon is crisp.
  7. Serve hot

There you have it, the best poppers you’ll put in your mouth!

(please keep in mind measurements/amounts are approx. as I have never actually measured out this recipe)

  1. This looks great! Like that you used Gouda. Good paring with bacon. Have you considered something like bacon, Gouda, pears and honey combination? Those flavors would prob work together.
