Bacon Jalapeno Cream Cheese Balls
Saw these made on a cooking show the other day, just substituted crushed pork rinds for the panko bread crumbs, and artificial sweetener in the sauce. Great for an appetizer!
½ cup cream cheese, whipped
1/2 cup crushed pork rinds
1 tablespoon BBQ spice rub (your favorite low carb version)
2 pounds ground beef
8 pieces of bacon
Raspberry Dipping Sauce
•Cut the jalapenos into ½ inch rings. Remove the seeds, and stuff them with cream cheese.
•In a mixer, add eggs, crushed pork rinds, spice rub, and ground beef, and mix.
•Portion the balls into 2 ounce balls, or so they fit in the palm of your hand, then cut the raw bacon strips in half making 16 pieces.
•Flatten the meat, and add one jalapeno ring in the center. Roll into balls around the jalapeno, then using a half strip of bacon, roll that around ball.
•Place in a large baking dish and roast in the oven at 250 degrees for and hour and a half to two hours. Makes approximately 16 balls.
Raspberry Dipping Sauce
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons AS (which ever heat stable sweetener you prefer)
4 ounces fresh raspberries
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
Make the raspberry dipping sauce by bringing the vinegar, sweetener, and raspberries to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the raspberries have lost their form and turned into a sauce. Scrape the raspberry mixture into a fine mesh strainer, and allow any excess liquid to drip away. Discard the liquid, and place the pulp into a small bowl. Stir in the minced jalapeno peppers to complete the dipping sauce.
Raspberry Sauce--10 grams for whole recipe
volunteered to make an appetizer for the shower as soon as I received the invite, but it took me forever to actually decide on a recipe. Jessica is a Texas girl so I wound up turning to one of my go-to resources on Texas food, Homesick Texan, for ideas and that's where I discovered this bacon-jalapeño cheese ball.
I'm not sure I've ever even had a cheese ball, but this recipe immediately called to me. Cream cheese is mixed with cheddar cheese, bacon, jalapeños and flavored with herbs and spices, then shaped into a ball, which is rolled in more bacon, more jalapeños and toasted pecans.
