Jalapeno Popper and Bacon Cheesecake
Everyone has a holiday recipe disaster story. Every now and then, we decide to stray from the tried and true classics and try new things for the holidays. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t! And some families have people who are more adventurous eaters, and some have the purists who don’t want you to mess with their green bean casserole and pecan pie.
This Jalapeno Popper & Bacon Cheesecake recipe is definitely for those more adventurous families. It’s a fun, additional recipe to serve during the holidays to “spice things up.” Those bacon fans on your guest list will appreciate your creative efforts. Just have that traditional pecan pie ready as back-up… Gather up these ingredients then head to Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt for the full recipe. And let us know what you think!
