It is a love/hate relationship with me….they are so hot….but they are so good….ok, I’ll have one more…yes, my mouth is burning…BUT I DON’T CARE!! These stuffed poppers are a real crowd pleaser….plus, they are good even when they cool off a bit—so you can serve them up and not worry about them! Perfect for a Memorial Day picnic with friends:) I hope you look like as big of an idiot as I do when I eat them;)

Feel free to make them ahead:) Just cover them with a damp paper towel so that the pastry doesn’t dry out too much.


What’s more patriotic then a popper? Nothing I tell you….nothing:) #grabmybeer

  1. These look SO good Tracie. We usually wrap the bacon around the popper when the fella and I make them but the pastry brings it to a whole new level! Totally trying this recipe this weekend!

  2. Hello, 12 peppers cut in half makes 24 pieces. Not being a critic, I follow a lot of cooking sites and am always looking for the different and easy recipes. I usually just put the cream cheese in and wrap with bacon, so I had to see your recipe. PS You don’t have to publish this comment. It was not meant to scold or sound over correcting. Carl

    1. Thanks! I meant to say 15 peppers…into 30….:)
