hmmmm, like I've posted before.... I like jalapenos done on the grill with cream cheese and shrimp stuffing. I like shrimp wrapped in bacon. Might as well combine all three! I never thought about wrapping the pepper in bacon before. Maybe that will save my fingers this time

Tried these last night. My filling was cream cheese, onion and garlic,
chopped smoked oysters.
The bacon was a bit chewy... might try pancetta next time.
Made some Coconut Curry chicken and Ginger Sesame Beef satays too.
Tasty!

well there were supposed to be photos, but once again
DC doesn't want my correctly sized jpgs. Oh well, just
use your imagination!

Do you find the bacon a bit overpowering? I ask because if only half a jalepeno is used, it seems that a full slice of bacon would wrap and wrap and wrap it three times or more.

Yup, the bacon was definitely there, Vera! (Like your avatar!)
A whole slice was too much, half a slice seemed like not enough...
But after cooking, decided a half slice would have been plenty.

Next time I might just cut the caps off the peppers, clean them
out and insert stuffing....

There is definitely a lot of room to play with these! :)

I made this recipe except stuffed the peppers with a mexican blend of cheese. I did not soak them though. My peppers seemed a bit tough - would the soaking soften them a bit? Did anyone else have tough peppers?Vera, I used 1/2 slice of bacon on around each of my peppers so it wrapped once. You might try that.

I like to use Anaheim peppers for these. My family doesn't do spicy well, and these seem to work well for them.

If you cook these on the grill, are you guys leaving them cheese side up so the cheese doesnt just ooze all out?

I tried this in the past and flipped them and all of the cheese fell out.

The only way around it it seems is using a whole piece of bacon and just wrapping the **** out of it but then it seems that that is way too much bacon.

since the bacon is already smoked, what about baking these @ 450 degrees until bacon is crisp?

That's what toothpicks are for
I've done jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and shrimp and the cheese didn't ooze out. I start them out slit up and flip them long enough to get grill marks on the other side. Because I'm not the best at splitting them open and getting the seeds out I usually hold them closed with a wet toothpick. Same thing if I wrap bacon around something. Get the toothpicks out.
