Jalapeno Poppers Bread

Skip the messiness of baking; this variation on Jalapeño Poppers is a creative party appetizer. Simple to prepare and present, or make in advance and then heat and serve.


18 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. grated cheddar
1 c. grated mozzarella
3 jalapeños, finely diced
½  tsp. pepper
3 baguettes
Bacon rashers

Pre-heat oven to 375ºF.

In a large bowl mix together cream cheese, cheddar, mozzarella, jalapeños and pepper until combined.

Cut baguette in half lengthwise and scoop out some of the insides.  Save for breadcrumbs. Fill each cavity with the cheese mix.  Place top half on top of bottom half. Arrange bacon flat on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Top with one baguette and wrap, herringbone style, with the bacon. Repeat with other bread loaf. Bake the oven for 20-30 minutes, or until bacon is cooked and golden brown. Enjoy. JW
