Jalapeno Poppers in a Blanket

Jalapeno Poppers in a Blanket


"What makes these poppers better than what you'd get in a restaurant?  Well, they're baked, not fried, and the filling includes all the usual ingredients . . . plus bacon.  Seems everything's better with a little bacon."

  1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
  2. Sprinkle the work surface with the flour. Unfold 1 pastry sheet on the floured surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 9x12-inch rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 12 (3-inch) squares. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheet, making 24 squares in all.
  3. Stir the cream cheese, shredded cheese, garlic and bacon in a medium bowl. Spoon about 2 teaspoons cheese mixture into each pepper half.
  4. Place 1 filled pepper half diagonally, cheese-side down,onto each pastry square. Fold the pastry up over the pepper and press firmly to seal. Brush the filled pastries with the egg mixture. Sprinkle with additional shredded cheese, if desired. Place the pastries onto 2 baking sheets.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown. Let the pastries cool on the baking sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes.


  • Recipe Tips:
  • Ingredient Note: You can use store-bought roasted garlic or make your own. To make your own, cut 1/4 inch off the top of a whole garlic bulb. Place the garlic onto a square of aluminum foil and drizzle with olive oil. Wrap tightly and bake at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes or until the garlic is very soft. Squeeze the garlic cloves out of the peel to use in this recipe.

These are delicious! Everyone I've made them for loves them.


Ok why are my soooooo spicy. I took out all the seeds and insides and they are still inedible but I still want to eat them weird. I used crescent dough they look really pretty but too spicy and ...

This recipe is wonderful. I have made it with and without the pastry and it's great either way. I didn't have any Monterey Jack last time and substituted 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1/4 cup sharp c...

OMG! I was hooked on the bacon-wrapped jalapenos, but now that I have made these about 10 times, I'm hooked for life! I have even gotten people who don't like jalapenos to try these and they l...

These were pretty good. However, I will not make them with the pastry again - just a bit too much/filling for us and it dulled the taste a little. We like the hotness of the Jalapenos!
