If you wanna use real bacon, but you're looking for a slightly healthier version than normal poppers, check this out: We make these ALL the time in our house, but rather than wrapping the halves, we lay 1/3 piece of thick-cut bacon on top of each cream-cheese-filled half (bonus - no toothpicks needed!!!). Then we cook them at 425 degrees for 48-55 minutes (we make a HUGE tray of them at a time - cook less time if you don't use the thick bacon). Line the pan with foil to make clean much less hellish, of course. These are to DIE for, and the 1/3 bacon still gives you all the flavor and crunchy/chewiness of the bacon with a few less heart attacks (use light cream cheese to keep away more angina). We'll continue to make these over and over and over again... EXTRA NOTE: Leftover poppers folded into an omelet or cut up into scrambles eggs the next morning are something you wish you could eat every single day, I promise.
