❗ Expert Tips

  • Leave a little bit of the membrane if you want them to be spicier.
  • Sprinkle the cream cheese with red pepper flakes for added heat.
  • For some extra fun flavors, use apple wood bacon or peppered bacon. YUMMY!
  • Add some dry ranch seasoning to the cream cheese for added flavor.
  • Not a fan of cheddar cheese? No problem, omit it or swap it with Pepper Jack or Colby Jack.
  • You can adjust the cooking time based on your preference. I like the cheese and bacon to get pretty dark in color.
