These poppers (made with jalapeno, bacon, garlic and cream cheese among other heavenly things) are the reason why I’ll never fit back into a bikini before the end of the summer…and you know what, I think I’m ok with that.  These would make a perfect starter for the 4th of July festivities tomorrow – if you don’t eat them all first!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle garlic cloves with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, unfold thawed pastry sheet and roll into a 9×12 inch rectangle. Slice each sheet into twelve 3×3 inch squares, making for a total of 24 squares with both sheets. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, bacon, cheddar, and garlic. Spoon cream cheese filling into jalapeno halves.
  3. Wrap pastry squares around stuffed jalapenos and arrange on a baking sheet.
  4. Whisk together egg and 3 tablespoons water. Brush egg mixture over poppers. (Top with additional cheddar, if you like.) Bake for 20 minutes.

  1. Oh wow. These look absolutely delicious! I love anything that resembles a stuffed jalapeno and the idea of covering them with crispy pastry with BACON (I am a bacon fiend!) is genius. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Hope you have a wonderful 4th July celebration! x
