Puff Pastry Jalapeño Poppers
Makes 24 poppers
12 jalapenos, halved and seeds removed
1 box puff pastry (2 sheets)
8 ounces cream cheese
½ cup bacon pieces
1 cup cheddar, shredded
4 cloves garlic
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle garlic cloves with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in oven for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, unfold thawed pastry sheet and roll into a 9×12 inch rectangle. Slice each sheet into twelve 3×3 inch squares, making for a total of 24 squares with both sheets. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, bacon, cheddar, and garlic. Spoon cream cheese filling into jalapeno halves.
Wrap pastry squares around stuffed jalapenos and arrange on a baking sheet.
Whisk together egg and 3 tablespoons water. Brush egg mixture over poppers. (Top with additional cheddar, if you like.) Bake for 20 minutes.
