Bacon Jalapeno Appetizers

Whenever I have the opportunity to bring a potluck dish, I like to make goodies which are naturally gluten-free. No fussy gluten-free flours or special products are required, just natural ingredients everyone enjoys. Bacon Jalapeno Appetizers are a big hit!

I tripled this recipe, because I knew half of these goodies wouldn’t make it out the door! The recipe is simple with just 3 ingredients.

Bacon Jalapeno Appetizers

15 jalapeno peppers

2 (15 oz) packages of cream cheese

1 package of bacon

Makes 30 appetizers

Directions: Clean the jalapenos. Cut the stems, slice the jalapenos in half, and scrape out the seeds. (Remember to wear  plastic gloves to protect your hands from the burning oils)

Fill each jalapeno half with 1-2 teaspoons of cream cheese

Cut bacon in half, and wrap 1 half of bacon around each cream cheese filled jalapeno

Secure each appetizer with a toothpick.

Bake at 350. Place on a broiler rack coated with cooking spray for 25 minutes, or until crispy.

Celebrate with a delicious gluten-free egg dish!

Shirred Eggs

I enjoy cooking delicious food which is naturally gluten-free.  I prefer using all natural ingredients without the use of gluten-free flours.  This way, even those who are not accustomed to gluten-free foods are enjoying the meal with those on the restricted diet.  You will enjoy the benefit of cooking everyone the same food at the same time!

Pass this recipe on to friends and family members who provide meals for you on special occasions.  They will appreciate not having to buy any special gluten-free products because most of the ingredients will already be in their pantry!

Our family first tasted this delicious dish at a conference at Hume Lake Christian Camps.  Everyone around the table raved over the eggs.  The dish was rich and custard-like with the surprise of a perfectly cooked yolk inside.  We couldn’t believe how yummy it was, and how simple the ingredients were.  I couldn’t wait to make it at home.


1/2 t. butter

4 t. heavy whipping cream

4 eggs

freshly ground pepper and salt

2 T grated Parmesan cheese

Preheat your oven to 375.  Place 4 ramekins on a baking sheet.

Coat 4 ramekins with melted butter.

Pour 1 t. heavy whipping cream into each ramekin.

Crack an egg into each ramekin, gently pushing the egg to the center of the dish.

Sprinkle each ramekin with grated Parmesan cheese.

Bake for 12-15 minutes.  The edges will be set and the center will slightly jiggle.

Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes and serve.

For an extra kick we have enjoyed hot Chalula sauce in the cream.  Or you may slip a piece of crisply crumbled bacon on the bottom of the dish before adding the egg.
