I thought it would be fun to share a fun and easy appetizer that gets gobbled up very quickly. The minute these bites hit the table, they are gone. So be prepared to make up a couple of batches. Grab a few friends and have them help you stuff them and it'll make the process go a lot faster. Plus, everyone always hangs out in the kitchen at parties anyways, right? Might as well put those people to work.
This recipe reminds me of some appetizers I ate at a Tupperware party once. Do you remember when they used to teach you how to burp your Tupperware? Or am I just showing my age here? My Mom used to have a little Tupperware container on a key chain with an actual lid. And I would sit there and burp that thing for hours. Sadly, that was exciting entertainment for me back in those days. I live for exhilarating moments like that.
1 tube crescent rolls
1/2 pound bacon (or use the precooked packaged bacon)
3 jalapenos, seeded and diced
1 block of cream cheese, at room temperature (8 oz.)
(only one tube of crescent rolls is pictured here, but this recipe would be enough for 2 tubes)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Spray baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Start frying up your bacon. If you'd like, cut the bacon up in pieces (I used kitchen scissors) and then cook it.
While the bacon is cooking, I cut up my jalapenos. Be sure to remove seeds. (If you are sensitive to jalapenos, you may want to wear gloves while doing this).
Now begin separating your crescent rolls into triangle shapes.
On each triangle, put a shmear of cream cheese. I like a lot of cream cheese so I put about 1/2 tbsp. or so on each one. Then put a piece of jalapeno, followed by some cooked bacon.
Now time to roll them up in little bundles. Just do your best to close all the seams so the cream cheese doesn't run out on ya while baking.
Now place all your bundles on your baking sheet (seam side down). I usually only cook one set at a time. Let folks start eating the warm ones while I bake up the second batch. But that part is entirely up to you.
Bake for about 12-15 minutes (or until golden brown).
Take them out and serve warm.
