This low fat version of the restaurant style from the deep fryer, makes you feel not so guilty that you’re consuming bacon. Of course if you want to make them even more figure friendly, use Turkey Bacon instead!

20 fresh 4” long Jalapeno Peppers, halved lengthwise & seeded**
8 oz. Low Fat Cream Cheese, softened
1 c. Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, shredded
½ Sweet Onion, minced
Salt & Pepper, to taste
20 slices Center Cut Hickory Smoked Bacon, cut in half

Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine the cheeses & onion & mix well.
Season mixture with salt & pepper and mix well.
Fill the peppers & place on a baking sheet.
Place a slice of bacon on top of filling.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Turn oven to HI broil.
Broil 4” from heat source until bacon has crisped.
Serve warm.

**NOTE: The length of the poppers are important because when the bacon slices are cut in half they fit perfectly on top of the 4″ popper!
