Jalapeno & Bacon Cream Cheese Bites

23 July 2013


Hey there! I'm Lauren, and I blog over at Simply FreeI'm a southern newlywed trying to live out this life as simply & creatively as I can while serving Christ, loving others, and finding an abundance of joy & laughter along the way! I write about life & love, as well as recipes & other crafts I've really enjoyed creating. I am so excited to guest post over here with the lovely miss Sarah while she enjoys some time with the Mr. & wanted to share with y'all one of my favorite easy recipes.


Being from the south, the husband and I love sporting events (War Eagle!) in this family & love to host parties! I generally make dips & he will grill or fry something when we get together at our place, but it's always great to have some "small bite" options aside from dips to feed a hungry crowd.  And as fall and football season are slowly creeping up (school supplies are out y'all!) I wanted to share with y'all one of my favorite hors d'oeuvres. Here is a tasty (& very easy!) recipe for game days or other gatherings. Enjoy!

Jalapeno & Bacon Cream Cheese Bites

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (8 Oz. Size) Crescent Rolls 
  • 1/2  of a block (8 Oz. Size) cream cheese (we use the 1/3 fat version)
  • 2  medium jalapeno peppers  (sliced into rounds, then quartered)
  • 8-10 slices cooked bacon (chopped into similar size as the peppers)
  • Ranch Dressing (for dipping) - we used Spicy Ranch
Directions:

  • Break crescent rolls into pre-cut triangles, then cut each triangle in half (forming 2 smaller triangles)
  • Place about 1 teaspoon cream cheese on each triangle
  • Place 2-4 jalapeno pepper slices on top of cream cheese
  • Place 4-6 small pieces of bacon on top of that
  • Wrap crescent roll around all, pressing edges together to seal (it's ok if it's not all the way sealed)
  • Bake according to crescent roll package instructions until lightly browned
  • Serve warm, with ranch dressing for dipping

 *note: the first time we made these, we made the jalapeno and bacon slices larger and we both agreed the rolls would benefit from more of each ingredient and making the pieces smaller as well so the pictures show larger pieces. Either will work & be just as tasty :)
