  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  • Fill each half jalapeno with about a tablespoon of softened cream cheese.
  • Slice the raw, thick-cut bacon in half crosswise.
  • Stretching the half slice of bacon slightly if necessary, wrap it twice around the middle of the jalapeno with the ends being underneath. See above photos. Use a toothpick if needed.
  • Using a barbecue basting brush, brush the Bourbon Candied Bacon Glaze all over the jalapeno popper.
  • Place the popper on a wire baking rack on a baking sheet OR on a foil lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the bacon is crisp, golden, and caramelized.
  • Broil for 2-3 minutes if additional crispiness and color is desired on the bacon.
  • Garnish with sliced green onions and serve with ranch or sour cream if desired.
