Pigs in a Blanket – Cheddar Jalapeno Recipe


One time we were at our friend’s home and it was on the eve of Superbowl. Our friend was so excited that she had found something to cook and keep her family busy at the heat of the finals. We wanted to know what it is … the air of expectation around us was almost tangible… and then she dropped the bomb. Jalapeno pigs in a blanket! We could never wait to get home and throw a pre-Superbowl party for ourselves. Since then, we can’t remember going for a week without cooking this bad boy appetizer

3. Place into oven and bake until golden brown, about 25 minutes on a cooking stone. If you do not have a cooking stone, cook on a baking sheet at 375 F for 12 minutes or until golden brown.

Helpful Hints
