Jalapeno Bacon Poppers

I don't claim to be a great cook. In fact, I when I'm making cereal I keep a fire extinguisher nearby just in case things get out of hand. But I digress, these jalapeno bacon poppers are off the chain! Here's the recipe.

  • 1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls
  • I brick of cream cheese (make sure its softened and not straight from the fridge)
  • 2 (dos) jalapenos, deseeded and diced
  • 6 pieces of delicious bacon (bonus points for maple syrup flavored), fried and crumbled


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with non-stick.
  2. Crack open that can of crescent rolls. Beware the loud pop. Separate the triangles, cut them in half, and place them on the baking sheet.
  3. Place a wad of cream cheese on each roll, add diced jalapenos and crumbled bacon.
  4. Fold the edges of the crescent rolls up and pinch them together. Place them seam side down and bake for 11-15 minutes. Make sure they are nice and golden brown, the crispiness is what makes them awesome.
