RECIPE: Jalapeño-Brie Poppers with Blueberry Dipping Sauce

26th Sep 11 (Mon) 2 comments

For this month’s Eugene Veggie Supper Club…

Jalapeño-Brie Poppers

Recipe below is for 8 peppers, but it’s easily scalable

Ingredients:

  • 8 medium sized jalapeño peppers
  • 2 tubes of crescent rolls
  • 1-8oz. wheel of brie or other soft cheese
  • optional: blueberry dipping sauce (from this recipe)

Preheat oven to 375°

Steps: super easy

  1. Wash, halve & de-seed the jalapeño peppers.
  2. Cut brie wheel into 16 approximately half-ounce pieces.
  3. Open crescent roll packages.
  4. Place 1/2 oz. wedge of brie into jalapeño half and roll up in one crescent roll.  Make sure to ensure cheese is fully covered, or you’ll have a higher risk of significant cheese leakage.  Note: I made these with one whole jalapeño for each crescent roll, and it was too much to fit... they still turned out OK, but I think they’d be better with a half pepper per roll.  Experiment with what you think works best.
  5. Place on baking pan (greased or lined with parchment paper) and bake for 16-20 minutes, or until browned.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy!

If you’re vegan, you can also try it with commercially available vegan cheese, or try to make you own vegan brie.  I haven’t tried this yet, but this vegan brie cheese recipe may work out for you.  Also, you’ll want to find a suitable vegan crescent roll (Pillsbury crescent dinner rolls are vegan if you don’t get the “butter flake” variety).

I’m late on posting this… too busy at work.  For last month’s vegetarian supper club in Eugene, we did a snowshoe trip; so the goal was to make something yummy that was also transportable.  I opted for…
