Several years ago I set out on a quest for the perfect recipe for homemade jalapeno poppers.
I tried breading and frying … breading and baking … battering and frying … weaving and bobbing … kicking and screaming …
Every attempt was labor-intensive, messy and, saddest of all, didn’t produce jalapeno poppers that knocked my socks off.
Finally, I stumbled across a winning recipe at All Recipes.
This recipe smartly tosses the breading, batter and oil aside.
Instead, each fresh jalapeno is lovingly filled with a cream cheese mixture and then gently wrapped in a comforting cocoon of …
Everything goes into a hot oven until the bacon is cooked to your liking, the cream cheese is heated through and the peppers are nice and tender.
Alyssa was off to college and Jeff was out of town so they weren’t able to celebrate the discovery with Jackie and I.
We actually ate these things for dinner once or twice…. “Normal” people will likely eat 4 each so keep this in mind when planning your gathering.
Super easy. As a matter of fact, these jalapeno poppers are so easy they barely need an actual “recipe.”
