4th of July Recipe - Date 06/30/2018

Every 4th of July party needs an easy finger food that has a little spice, a little cheese, and a lot of bacon.  That’s why our go-to recipe for any gathering is these Bacon- Wrapped Cheesy Stuffed Jalapenos from SallysBakingAddiction.com.  Give them a try!



12 fresh jalapeño peppers

8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1 clove garlic, chopped

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

12 slices bacon, cut in half

24 toothpicks



Preheat oven to 400F degrees.

Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Place a baking rack on top of the baking sheet.

Cut the jalapeño peppers in half lengthwise; remove seeds and center membrane.

Beat the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic, and paprika together until combined. Salt to taste. Spoon filling equally among all jalapeño halves.

Wrap each stuffed jalapeño with a half slice of bacon and stick a toothpick through the center to assure the bacon stays in place. Place each on the baking rack and bake for 25-28 minutes or until the bacon is crisp to your liking. Enjoy!
