We loved these! Mine did take longer to cook, than stated (about 40 mins. or so), but other than that, they were great. I added a bit of garlic powder to the cheese mixture, just because. I was glad to use up some jalapenos from the garden...I will def be making thiese again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

I have no idea what I did differently than everyone else, but these were so hot that we could not eat them. I'm not sure if the jalapenos I bought were another kind of pepper or WHAT. I love jalapeno poppers as an appetizer in a restaurant, but these went straight into the garbage. Also, the cheese oozed out of most of them because of the extended baking time (35 minutes).

These were devine. I used November! garden Jalapenos and they were on the small side so I cut the bacon in thirds, just enough to go round and secure with toothpick and I also cooked them longer so the bacon was crisp but boy were they GOOD! This a great little snack to add to other little snacks that you can make ahead of time and serve for company. I NEVER write reviews butyou really have to try these. So much better than the fried poppers.

They did take longer to cook than listed, although I like my bacon crisp. I switched to the broiler for 5-10 minutes longer and they were perfect.

Everyone keeps saying they take longer than the recipe states. This is a very simple fix-I always pre-fry the bacon half way before I wrap the jalapenos. Then I broil them for 4-5 minutes instead of baking them, and they are awesome!!!!! People beg me to bring them to get-togethers!!!!

Love em! I use small jalapenos and I substitute jack cheese for the cheddar. After I slice the peppers, I microwave them for 1 minute, then stuff them. I cut turkey bacon into thirds and lay it over the top instead of wrapping the pepper because it cooks the bacon more evenly. You can't tell the difference between the regular bacon and the turkey bacon once these things are done. They are DIVINE and it's the one thing all of my friends ask me to bring to any of our get togethers.

Delicious but they cook a little faster if you wrap the halves in bacon instead of putting the halves back together. Worth a try if you're considering this recipe.

This recipe is awesome and works terrific on the grill! I recommend cooking them in "halves" as opposed to putting the halves together (I used just 1/2 bacon slice per 1/2 jalepeno), and this also helps in a faster cooking time. For grilling, I'd also recommend to put toothpicks through each assembled piece to keep the bacon from falling off.
