Crescent Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers

Crescent Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers are scrumptious treat perfect for munching on during the game!

Hey, y'all! Welcome to the latest installment of Sunday's Snacks where I share with you a recipe perfect for enjoying during the big game! Throughout this series, I have shared with you some super yummy recipes such as Jalapeno Popper Dip, Bunless Burger Bites, Loaded Tater Tot Skewers and Chicken and Waffle Sliders.

When I am coming up with a football friendly recipe, it has to meet the following criteria:

  • It requires minimal prep time.

  • Finger-foods are a plus.

  • The recipe has to be delicious.

Simple enough, right? I mean, who wants to spend half of the game in the kitchen? Certainly not me! I'd rather be sitting in front of the big screen cheering on my Jaguars and Cowboys.

Football games in our household are a family affair. My brothers, sister-in-law, and all of our kids gather at my parent's house to watch the games on the big screen. It's a huge deal. Since there's a butt-ton of kids there, we make sure our football grub is kid-friendly. These Jalapeno Poppers are actually quite kid friendly! By removing all of the seeds and ribs of the jalapenos, and by wrapping the pepper in a dough takes away the heat of the pepper.

I love this recipe because it is simple to throw together and they taste great! These delicious jalapeno poppers are perfect for parties, tailgates, and game day snacks!
