Here are a couple more ideas with bacon for game day treats or an appetizer. They could not be simpler.
6 fresh jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
12 slices bacon
Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat or an oven 400 degrees F. Spread cream cheese to fill jalapeno halves. Wrap with bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Make sure you wash your hands well after handling the chilies. Place on the grill or in the oven and cook until bacon is crispy. Turn over when one side is crispy and do the other side.
Bacon Wrapped Lil’ Smokies
1 16 oz. package Little Smokies
1 package bacon
1 cup brown sugar
Cut bacon slices into thirds. Wrap each Little Smokie with a piece of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Continue wrapping Little Smokies until all are used.
Put into a 9 x 13 pan. Pour brown sugar over the bacon wrapped Smokies and bake in a 350 degrees F oven for 20 minutes and then turn over to let other side get crispy. Bake another 10 to 20 minutes until both sides are crispy.
Variation - I also make a bacon wrapped shrimp but since it take such a short time to cook shrimp, I use pre-cooked bacon and only bake it for a few minutes until the shrimp is done. I don't use the brown sugar. I marinate the shrimp in soy sauce and a bit of lemon.
Tomorrow I doing apples again. I found a couple more apple recipes to use up the fall apples.
Enjoy this week ends game. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
