These brie-stuffed jalapeno bites are a surefire hit! Not only are they delicious, but they're also low-carb and perfect for anyone following a ketogenic diet.
To make these bites, you'll need the following ingredients:
8 large jalapeno peppers
4 ounces brie cheese, sliced into thin wedges
4 slices speck or bacon, cut in half
Toothpicks or small skewers
First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Next, slice the jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and ribs. You can use a spoon or a small knife to scrape out the seeds and ribs, but be careful not to touch your eyes or face while handling the peppers as they can be quite spicy.
Once the peppers are prepared, stuff each pepper half with a slice of brie cheese. The cheese should fit snugly inside the pepper, but be careful not to overstuff it.
Wrap each stuffed pepper with a half slice of speck or bacon (any cured ham will do!), securing it in place with a toothpick or skewer. Place the peppers on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for 10-12 minutes until the bacon is crispy and the cheese is melted.
Once the peppers are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving. These brie-stuffed jalapeno bites are best served hot, so be sure to serve them while they're still warm.
These bites are a great appetizer for any occasion, and they're sure to be a hit with everyone.
