Cowboy Eggs

If you follow me on Facebook {if you don't I would love for you to follow along}, you probably saw that I was trying a new concoction that involved jalapenos, cream cheese, & bacon!!!  I said if it didn't fail and got the hubs approval I would post it.  Well, he loved it so here goes...


Here's my recipe

11/2 pounds ground hamburger
5 jalapenos, cut off the top & remove seeds
1/2 brick cream cheese
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
5 strips of bacon
salt & pepper to taste
seasoning salt to taste

Mix cream cheese, 1/2 of the cheddar cheese, & salt & pepper in a bowl.  Stuff jalapenos with cream cheese mixture {you will probably have some left}.  Pat out hamburger patties that are seasoned to your liking.  Place a stuffed jalapeno in the middle and roll the hamburger up over the jalapeno like a taco and pat until it forms an egg.  Wrap hamburger with a piece of bacon.  Place on a grill {I have a Traeger and cooked them at 350} and cook them for 5 minutes per side turning a quarter of a turn for each side.  I served them over a rice bed with black beans and corn seasoned with cilantro and topped them with the remaining cheddar cheese and salsa.  Enjoy!!

The jalapenos still had a crispness to them, so if you don't like that you could roast them prior to making this recipe.  

If you find this recipe worthy of trying, please feel free to Pin it and share with others!!

  2. Wow, my husband's name is written all over this! And I think he'd be pretty astonished if I whipped this up since I normally stick to VERY easy dinners, lol
