Jalapeno Turkey Bacon Poppers

Here’s another Hungry Girl inspired recipe. Jalapeno Poppers wrapped in Turkey Bacon. These are so yummy and easy to make and 100% hubby approved. Make a big impression and serve these at your next party. No one will know they are healthy (unless you tell them). By the way, these are 3 weight watcher points for 5 poppers. That’s half the recipe so yes indulge yourself. I do every time I make these. Just a reminder this is the old point system. If it’s not broke don’t fix it.
  • 5  jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup low fat cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup low fat tex-mex shredded cheese (or any low fat cheese)
  • Low fat turkey bacon (I used presidents choice blue menu. It’s wide and I was able to cut it into five strands to wrap the jalapenos with. Also it’s 1 ww point for one piece)
  • 1/2 cup of ground fiber one cereal
  • 2 egg whites in a bowl
  • A dash of pepper
  • .5 tsp of garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Wash Jalapenos and cut off the stems.
  3. Halve the jalapenos lengthwise, and remove the innards (seeds and all)
  4. Mix cream cheese, cheese shreds, pepper and garlic powder.
  5. Using a blender or magic bullet, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency (no blender no worries. grab a zip lock bag and roll it with a rolling pin until you have a fine powder)
  6. Place crumbs in one small bowl and the egg whites in another.
  7. Stuff each pepper half with cheese mixture and wrapped with bacon strands (toothpicks help hold the bacon in place while cooking, but remove them when they are done)
  8. Coat both sides of each pepper half with egg substitute, and then with the fiber one. Place peppers in a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray, and place in oven.
  9. Cook for 25 minutes and enjoy. This recipe makes 10 Jalapeno Turkey Bacon Poppers.
