Recipe Swap: Bacon and Cream Cheese Jalapeno Bites


For this Recipe Swap it was decided that we would go SRC style and chose any recipe we wanted from the blog that we were assigned. Ironically this happened in the month where the SRC decided to take a break, which made it perfect for me. While I can spend any day of any week choosing a recipe from a blog, it's somehow just more special when there is more purpose behind it.

For this Recipe Swap I was assigned Jaida's blog, Sweet Beginnings. I had Jaida's blog for a recipe swap once before and ended up getting to make the ever delicious Tailgate Sliders. Jaida was also the one to nominate me for the Liebster award, which I am proud to say, since receiving the award, I've gained 11 new followers! So I knew I wouldn't have any trouble finding a recipe to choose. Instead, I had trouble choosing just one recipe!

Luckily, timing was able to help me narrow it down. We received our blog assignments right before New Years Eve. I was planning on making some appetizers but I hadn't narrowed it down yet. When I saw the Bacon & Cream Cheese Jalapeno Bites I knew I that was the perfect recipe and something I needed to make right away!

Have I ever mentioned that I'm slightly addicted to jalapeno poppers? Or cream cheese? No? Well, I am.

    • 5 jalapeno peppers
    • 5 slices bacon, cut in half
    • 2 oz. cream cheese, slightly softened

1. Preheat the oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil.
2. Slice the jalapeno peppers in half and remove the seeds and inner membranes.
3. Spoon the cream cheese into each half of the jalapenos.
4. Wrap each jalapeno piece with bacon and secure with a toothpick.
5. Place the jalapenos onto the baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until the bacon is cooked and crispy.

Yum! I ate almost all of these by myself. Sorry guests! These are definitely going to become a staple appetizer when we entertain people. Simple, quick, and hey, you could even be healthy about it by using fat free cream cheese and turkey bacon.

  1. I didn't know SRC would be taking a break when I made the calendar for the swaps (and I didn't realize the timing until you mentioned it!) but how perfect. :)

    I'm so glad you enjoyed these. They sound amazing.
