Here is a delicious recipe for one of my favorite appetizers. Whenever served, they are a favorite of my friends and are a hit at any party. The ingredients are simple, just jalapenos, cheese and bacon. To prepare the "rattlesnake eggs" just follow these simple directions or refer to the pictures above:
15 whole jalapenos 8 oz package of Rodele Cheese with Garlic and Herbs 1 lb of bacon cut in half
Directions: First slice jalapenos in half and then remove all seeds. Next spread Rondele Cheese on halved jalapenos, and then wrapped with bacon. Once wrapped, place jalapenos on a large enough cookie tray covered with aluminum foil (saves on clean-up) and place in oven on broiler setting and watch carefully. When bacon browns, remove from oven. Allow to sit until cool to touch before serving.
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
