Bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers

These are not your run-of-the-mill jalapeño poppers. We use our own Basic Bolognese Sauce as stuffing to add more oomph and zing, not to mention saving you time (assuming that you already have the sauce in your freezer.)

All you need to do is cut your peppers lengthwise and remove all the seeds and membranes.

Then fill your pepper halves with the stuffing and wrap with bacon strip. We happened to have oil leftover from the sauce so we drizzled it on our poppers for added flavor.

Bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers


  1. 4 large jalapeño
  2. 200 g Basic Bolognese Sauce
  3. 8 bacon strips


  • Cut the jalapeño in half lengthwise, remove all the seeds and membranes.
  • Fill the peppers with the sauce stuffing.
  • Wrap a strip of bacon around the pepper by pulling the strip while wrapping. This will help make it tight. Then place it seam side down on a baking tray. To make sure the bacon won't come apart, use tooth pick to secure it.
  • Bake at 350 • C for 20 mins or until bacon is crispy.
