The Lost Poppers

Once upon a time, 
I did a pre-recorded segment on Good Things Utah.
It was Christmastime.
Nuff said.
So today, as I was finalizing my Super Bowl Spread menu,
I remembered I had never shared my Jalepeno Popper segment!
We filmed it in early December, but it aired the day after Christmas as part of the live show.
The work was done,
and I had the day off.
When I went to open my Instagram account {emiemiemi82},
low and behold it was flooded with messages from followers.
Almost a hundred messages!
And I sat there thinking,
"Why are there so many messages? What in the world did I post this morning?"
Then it hit me.
I was on tv and completely forgot.
Forgot to watch.
Forgot to tell anyone.
OH how I love technology and pre-recording haha.
So there you have it folks.
That's how the poppers got lost.
I blame Christmas completely.
But who knows,
had I remembered back then,
maybe I wouldn't have remembered to share this with you
for the
Then all would have truly been lost ;).
My favorite part about television is the magic.
You take something real, and television turns into something beyond your wildest dreams.
Usually in 4 minutes or less on my cooking segment.
Either way, I love rolling with the punches 
and having my hands in all of the behind the scenes action.
I think it's why I've loved being a mother to a lot of little babies all at once. 
You never quite know what the day will bring,
but you can always count on the fact that it will be exciting.

Jalepeno Poppers

1 bag mini peppers
1 package Goat, Havarti, and/or Blue Cheese
1 package Prosciutto or Bacon
Jalepeno Popper holder 
{OR wrap Prosciutto or Bacon over the top like a lid, 
and lay peppers on their sides in an aluminum lined baking pan or sheet} 

  1. Preheat Oven 400*.
  2. Cut the tops off of the peppers, and core them, so there are no seeds left.
  3. Stuff with cheese of your choice.
  4. Wrap with Prosciutto or Bacon {Prosciutto you don’t have to fasten on, but bacon needs tooth picks and is more laborious}.
  5. Bake in the oven @400* for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  6. ENJOY!
