  • 12 jalapeno peppers
  • 1/2 cup pimento cheese with or without diced jalapenos mixed in!
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar


  • Place a cooling rack on a large cookie sheet and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wearing disposable gloves, slice each jalapeno in half, lengthwise. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and membranes.
  • Use a spoon to fill the insides of each jalapeno with as much of the pimento cheese as will fit, probably around 1 teaspoon depending on the size of your peppers.
  • Cut each slice of bacon into three equally sized pieces. Wrap one piece of the cut bacon around the jalapenos, cut side down to hold the bacon in place.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the bacon.
  • Place the jalapenos on the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes or until the bacon is crisped to your liking.
  • Serve immediately.
