Puff Pastry Jalapeno Poppers by Rachel Schultz

Have you ever gone to the movies alone? The first time I ever did was in 8th grade. My mom had to go to a boring appointment or something so I went and saw Blue Crush. I haven’t done it again since, until yesterday.

Once I got over the part of my social wiring that told me I was being super lame, I really loved it. I went to the theatre. In the middle of the day. The movie finished and I could just walk out without having to talk to anyone. It held me in the catharsis of the story a bit longer.

Put simply, it was great. If your life’s schedule ever allows you to see a weekday matinee by yourself, I suspect you’ll like it.

PUFF PASTRY JALAPEÑO POPPERS
Makes 24 poppers

12 jalapeños, halved and seeds removed
1 box puff pastry (2 sheets)
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup bacon pieces
1 cup cheddar, shredded
4 cloves garlic
1 egg
Olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Drizzle garlic cloves with olive oil and wrap in aluminum foil. Roast in oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, unfold thawed pastry sheet and roll into a 9×12 inch rectangle. Slice each sheet into twelve 3×3 inch squares, making for a total of 24 squares with both sheets. In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, bacon, cheddar, and garlic. Spoon cream cheese filling into jalapeño halves.
