Here is a fun and easy appetizer. It is a take on a ‘Jalapeno Popper’ with bacon of course. Cheese, jalapenos, and bacon are baked with refrigerator bisquits in a muffin pan. Simple, but with a ton of rich, ooey goodness is this appetizer. I call it deconstructed because it sounds fancy. The jalapenos with its mild to medium heat are the perfect compliment to rich cream cheese. We throw in some Jack cheese to make it over the top decadent. Wait a minute. Did I mention bacon? Salty, meaty bacon is the star as far as I am concerned. Let’s make some de-constructed bacon jalapeno poppers.


I can of refrigerator flaky bisquits
1 8 ounce block of cream cheese (softened)
1 cup of shredded cheese of your choice (We used Jack)
Salt & pepper to taste
3 jalapenos chopped fine
4 slices of bacon cooked crisp (reserve bacon fat)

Cook your bacon until crisp and let cool. You can use the bacon fat to grease your muffin pan. (Non-stick spray could be used but why would you want to waste bacon love). Combine the cheeses, jalapenos, salt & pepper and chopped bacon. Pop open your refrigerator rolls and separate rolls in half. They will peal apart fairly easy. Line each muffin tin with dough. Place cheese and bacon mixture into center of dough. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bisquits are browned. See I told you it was easy.

This mixture of ingredients will meld together to form a wonderful appetizer for any party application. These even taste great the next day. I ate them cold and really enjoyed them. Ms. Goofy would have no part of that and reheated them to even greater glory. Once again bacon saves the day.

I have to agree with Ms. Goofy, these would be a little hard to take cold. But, they look great. If you keep using words like deconstructed though, I am going to think that you have go over to the Hipster Dark Side...

Three Dogs BBQ, Do not knock it until you have tried it. (cold) Deconstructed the term has been around a lot longer than the tatted, skinny jeaned crowd. Are you sure this is Three Dogs BBQ and not the greatwhite hunter because I sense hostility and possible a little creepy uncle syndrome with your observations.

Ok, perhaps deconstructed is more of a foodie term. You know what? Those are screaming for corn bread. Maybe next time.

greatwhite hunter, I have one word for you: Incorrigible. Did you get your bike?

I shall remain silent... for now...

Can't wait to come out to the Bay Area next time. It will be a grand visit. Not this year, but in 2016 for our 5th anniversary for sure!

Sounds delicious to me. Pinned. I wanted to thank you again for that garlic. I've not used it yet and am looking for something very special. I saw a recipe the other day where it was simply sprinkled over an over-easy egg. I must try that first. And I wanted to stop in and wish the Chile Brown family a very Merry Christmas.

Lea Ann, how about risotto? We used it is a sandwich spread. Here is the link

Merry Christmas to you. We will be on Elway watch tomorrow night.
