- 10 jalapeños
- 125 g/1/2 cup French roule cheese soft cheese with herbs and garlic, or cream cheese
- 10 strips of bacon/streaky bacon in the UK
Preheat the oven to 350F/180C
Prepare the jalapeños by cutting the tops off, slitting one side with a sharp knife and scraping the seeds off. Wear gloves if you have sensitive skin and wash the knife and cutting board well afterwards.
Fill jalapeños with approximately 1tsp of soft cheese (depending on the size) and wrap with a strip of bacon starting from the top and making sure the top and seam are well covered to prevent cheese from leaking out.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes, then turn the broiler/grill on and cook for additional 3 minutes until the bacon is crispy.
