Baked Bacon Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers instead of wrapped! Tossing in crispy bacon crumbles gives you a play on the taste buds… which is amazing!
Remember when I told you that I only had two things on my mind this month? You didn’t miss that post did you? Well go here to find it if you did! But… these Baked Bacon Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers are sure to be a hit at your next tailgating party!! Promise!
I love jalapeno poppers. Preferably the ones that you fry and the cream cheese comes out super soft and cheesy! Don’t you? Ohh and the cheddar flavored.. yummy!! When it comes to baking the poppers… also very delightful, but you get a totally different texture; still good though!
Wrapping poppers in bacon; I’m not a fan! Can you believe that? As much as I loveeee bacon, I do not like them wrapped in it! What can I say, I love bacon to be crispy.. sometimes extra crispy and when you wrap things in bacon you don’t get that same crispy effect. So what did I do to fix that problem? Fry up some bacon, crumble it up (technically I cut it while it’s still frozen into tiny strips so it’s already crumbled when it cooks) and then add the cooked bacon to my filling!
Oh-my-goodness… let me tell you. The crispness of the bacon is absolutely amazing put into the jalapenos! Seriously. It turned out way better than I had even anticipated.
Adding the bacon to the filling might take a little more time because you have to fry the bacon first, but it’s less labor intense. You don’t have to wrap each individual popper and then stick a toothpick in them to hold the bacon in place while you bake them… ugh. I just don’t like wrapping things in bacon! LOL.
So you thought that adding the bacon to the filling was a little weird right? Well… I also added fresh chives. Delicious. I’m telling you… they’re the best homemade poppers I’ve ever had, hands down. My new favorite!
In fact… all of the ones I made tonight for supper. Gone. Yup. Gone. In like 10 minutes. How is that possible?! I wanted some tomorrow for lunch! Oh well… I’ll just make more 🙂
