Is it me or does it feel like from now until the end of the year we are driving in the express lane?
If you have been shopping lately, you've noticed that the stores have three holidays displayed at once - Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas all rolled together.
One thing for sure, holidays mean the gathering of friends and family. With those gatherings - a lot of food!
Let us help you with some of the stress that comes with the holidays with some quick recipes for appetizers and side dishes using REAL food.
Here is our recipe for Jalapeno Poppers that are quick and sure to please a crowd:
20 - 24 Jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise, seeded, and deveined**
2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese
1 1/2 lbs. bacon (not thick sliced) - cut in half widthwise
1 t. onion powder
1 t. salt
1/2 t. garlic powder
2 cups shredded cheese
Combine cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder, salt, and garlic powder in a bowl.
Stuff each jalapeno half with the cream cheese mixture and wrap with 1/2 slice of bacon
Secure with a toothpick if needed
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
Makes approximately 40 - 48 poppers.
**We did the "heavy lifting" for you on the Jalapenos. Fresh-frozen, seeded and deveined Jalapenos are available for purchase at the Farm or at the Huntley Indoor Farmers Market. All you need to do is stuff, wrap and bake these and enjoy the compliments!
