recipe of the week: jalapeno cream cheese poppers

I looked at these on Pinterest and thought "why don't you just buy those in the frozen food section?  It has to be easier".   But then I realized I already have two cans of biscuits and a tub of cream cheese in the fridge.  Its just cheaper to buy 3 jalapenos and bacon.  Yes, four ingredients.  Its fast... easy... and delicious.  We had friends over this weekend.  These little guys left the plate in less than 10 minutes.  And I doubled the recipe!

{the goods}
1 can of crescent rolls    ***I used biscuits
1-2 jalapenos
cream cheese
3 strips of bacon

{let's cook}
Preheat oven to 350 deg.  Open the can of crescent rolls and spread them out on a cookie sheet.  I cut all crescent rolls in half so they were smaller.  If you like bigger ones then by all means leave them as they are.  ***If you use biscuits i would definitely cut each slice in half.  Then flattened them out a little bit... like mini pizzas.
Cut raw bacon into smaller chunks.  If you use kitchen shears its much easier.  Then fry in skillet.  Spread a little cream cheese on each crescent while bacon is frying.  Cut jalapenos into small slices.  Now add 1-2 slices of jalapenos and 1-3 chunks of bacon to each crescent.  You'll want to make sure each crescent is full, but don't over load them because then its hard to wrap.


Wrap up each crescent and pinch edges to make a seam.

 
Pop them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
***If you use biscuits it will take longer... more on the 15 minute side.
