Yup! you heard it here!! I am so excited about my little treats that I made last night that I simply couldn't wait..
Bacon-wrapped grilled jalapeno poppers!!!
Cut the tops off of the peppers & core them. For years I have struggled with getting the centers out and still leaving the pepper in tact. Then it occurred to me.. use the pumpkin tool form carving jac-o-lanterns!
works like a charm!
Cut each cheese stick in half & shove that baby right down into the center of your pepper. Cut each bacon slice in half & wrap around the pepper up near the top: secure with a toothpick.
I have this nifty popper holder that I got last year with a gift card, but you don't need to be all fancy pants like this to make these.
to prove it, I made one without my exciting toy
just don't place the pepper directly over the coals, because the bacon drippings will cause flare ups. Don't ask me how I know this....
Grill them until the bacon is crisp & the cheese is oh-so-yummlily melted.
And just in case that you missed the first picture..
I need to go now, I think that I'm going to make these again.
