Craig stopped by The Hallmark Channel's, Home and Family, on Monday, 5/14, to cook up his signature Sweet Jalapeño Pepper Poppers!


Watch Craig's segment from the show below and read the recipe for yourself!

Sweet Jalapeño Pepper Poppers Recipe: 


• 12 whole small sweet peppers

• 5 oz. of gorgonzola crumbles

• 4 oz., weight cream cheese (softened at room temperature)

• 6 strips bacon, cut in half at the center (this will give you 12 pieces)


1) Preheat oven to 350 F and spray a baking sheet lightly with cooking spray

2) Wash and prepare your peppers by cutting the top off and making a slice down one side, so you can carefully open them up and scoop out the seeds (discard the seeds). Then set peppers aside. 

3) Combine gorgonzola crumbles in a bowl with the cream cheese. Stir until well mixed. Spoon this mixture into each of the 12 peppers

4) Wrap each pepper with a piece of the bacon and secure with a toothpick

5) Freeze overnight, if desired for cheese not to gush out

6) Place peppers on the baking sheet with the bacon "seams" on the bottom

7) Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the bacon starts to crisp
