Grilled Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers with Brown Sugar Bacon – spicy jalapenos stuff with cream cheese and topped with sweet and smokey bacon.
Grilled Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers
If you’ve been following Call Me PMc, you know that this is Bacon Month. I’ve been sharing two new bacon recipes each week for you. If you scroll all the way to the bottom of this post, you can see what everyone else has made as well.
For these stuffed jalapeno peppers, I cooked the bacon first instead of wrapping it around the pepper and grilling it. The thing I don’t like about wrapping the pepper is the bacon doesn’t get crispy. I like crispy bacon.
This is a great appetizer and perfect party or tailgating food. It’s particularly popular with guys. It’s also an easy recipe to make. Put it together hours beforehand and grill or bake when needed. It’s also good hot or room temperature. I bet it’s even good cold, but there’s never any leftover to try cold!
Prepping takes longer than the actual cook time leaving you time to enjoy the party and not standing over the grill! Actually, maybe I should stand over the grill longer and not at the bar……..
It’s Bacon Month and we’re celebrating each week with a new giveaway!
