Puff Pastry Jalapeño Poppers
March 10, 2014 / Makes 24 Poppers / / Print /
I’ll need these jalapeño recipes when the garden starts kicking out all the jalapeños later in the year. This one looks yummy!
12 jalapeños, halved and seeds removed
1 box puff pastry (2 sheets)
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup bacon pieces
1 cup cheddar, small shred
4 cloves garlic
Preheat oven to 400° F. Drizzle garlic cloves with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
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 jalapeño halves.
Wrap pastry squares around stuffed jalapeños and arrange on a baking sheet.
Whisk together egg and 3 tablespoons water. Brush egg mixture over poppers. (Top with additional cheddar, if you like.) Bake for 20 minutes.
