BACON-WRAPPED JALAPENO POPPERS

 

Prep time: 30 minutes

 

Cook time: 30 minutes

 

Serves: 40

 

 

2 packages Bob Evans Thick Sliced Hardwood Smoked Bacon, slices cut in half

 

1 package Bob Evans White Cheddar Mashed Potatoes

 

1 package garlic herb cheese spread

 

20 jalapeno peppers, halved, seeded with membranes removed

 

1/4 cup brown sugar

 

1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

 

 

  • Heat oven to 400 F. Set bacon out to thaw to room temperature so it is pliable.

     

  • In mixing bowl, use rubber spatula to combine mashed potatoes and garlic herb cheese. Stir until incorporated. Spread 1 teaspoon mashed potato mixture in each jalapeno half; level each with butter knife or spatula.

     

  • Wrap each jalapeno with bacon; use three half slices for large jalapenos or two halves for smaller sizes. Be sure bacon is wrapped sealing in mashed potato mixture tightly.

     

  • In small mixing bowl, combine brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Generously sprinkle over bacon and pat gently to make it stick.

     

  • Line cookie sheet with piece of parchment paper so sugar does not burn to pan. Bake until bacon reaches desired crispiness, around 25-35 minutes.

     

  • Let peppers cool slightly before serving, about 5 minutes.
