It’s been a while since we’ve actually had a recipe on here. So long in fact, I forgot what I called these segments…
I think this is a good one for us to get back into the groove. Simple, easy, tasty! I think I will convience Better Half that we need for these at the party she’s throwin’.
Baked Jalapeno Bacon Poppers
10 mini sweet peppers or jalapeno peppers
3 strips bacon
1 eight-ounce package cream cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning (or your seasoning blend of choice)
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs or corn flake crumbs
1. Preheat oven to 375F. Slice each sweet pepper in half lengthwise. Use your spoon to scoop out any seeds and some of the rib to make a nice, clean boat.
2. Cook bacon to crisp (you can use a microwave – place bacon between paper towels, microwave 3-4 minutes or until crisp). Mince cooked bacon. In a bowl, mix together the bacon, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and Cajun seasoning. Spoon cheese mixture into each sweet pepper.
3. Melt butter in microwave, stir in the bread crumbs. Hold each popper and dip cheese side down into bread crumbs. Bake 375F for 20 minutes or until cheese melty and bread crumbs crusty.
