Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos

Oh friends!  Looking for the perfect thing to make this weekend?  I have this recipe right here that you MUST try!  It’s Sheaffer’s Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers!  We love making jalapeno poppers at my house, but I wanted to try them Sheaffer’s way…soaked in Italian dressing.  Weird?  Yes.  Delicious? YES!!!!  We baked ours in the oven, but Sheaffer says you can also grill them too.  These are such an easy little addition to any summer supper!

Happy eating, friends!

This recipe makes 20 jalapeno poppers.  We let ours marinate 5 hours before baking.  

Shopping List
10 jalapenos, sliced in half lengthwise and the ribs and seeds scooped out (for less heat!)
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese
10 pieces of uncooked bacon, sliced in half (so you have 20 pieces)
2 (24 oz) bottles of Italian dressing

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a cookie sheet with foil and then spray with cooking spray (for easy clean up!).  Set aside.

Take each jalapeno and spoon some cream cheese down inside the cavity.  Next, take a piece of bacon and wrap it around the jalapeno before placing it in a large mixing bowl.   Repeat with the rest of your jalapeno halves.  When you’re done, pour your Italian dressing down over the top until all of the peppers are covered by it.  Refrigerate as long as you can (one hour up to 24 hours).

When you’re ready to bake (or grill), remove your peppers from the bowl (discarding all liquid) and place on your prepared cookie sheet.  Pop your jalapenos into your oven and bake about 35 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool just a couple of minutes before serving.

Thank you, Sheaffer!!

    This is such a simple recipe to make, why haven’t I thought of it? I love jalapeno peppers (or just any peppers, sweet OR spicy)! 😀

    Hi Shay! I wanted to leave this comment on the recipe I tried but I couldn’t find the place to leave a comment :-). Anyways, I have made a ton of your recipes and loved them all. The other night I tried the. Baked Lemon Chicken and Rice. I had pre-read the comments that were left and noticed a lot of people had trouble with the rice not cooking in the allotted time. So after the 20 minutes I checked . . and my rice wasn’t cooked through either. I tried adding more broth and cooked longer . . it took at least 25 more minutes to get it where we could eat the rice without it being too crunchy. We loved the flavor of the dish and I love lemon chicken because I’m Greek so I didn’t want to give up on this recipe. I think the problem is . . . you need to COVER the cooking pan/pot when putting it into the oven. That way the steam won’t escape and the rice will cook nicely. Just thought I would share . . :-).
