Mini Jalapeño Popper Rolls

Bite size Jalapeño Popper Rolls stuffed with cream cheese, fresh jalapeños and crumbled bacon. For even more cheese flavor, use a combination of cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese.
Are you looking for an easy appetizer for your next party or football get-together? Today I'm sharing these easy Mini Jalapeño Popper Rolls that I think you're going to love. These easy rolls start with frozen dinner rolls stuffed with cream cheese, fresh jalapenos and crumbled bacon. Everything you love about traditional jalapeno poppers, but inside mini fluffy yeast rolls. 

This recipe is quick, easy and no one will even suspect that you used frozen bread dough. I have to say as much as I love baking from scratch, I also love taking shortcuts. If you don't have the time or patience to make homemade bread dough then, Rhodes Frozen Dough is your secret weapon. 

Rhodes bread and roll dough have all the flavor and texture of homemade dough, but without all the fuss of making it from scratch. I love using frozen dough to make dinner rolls, pizza, monkey bread, bread sticks, holiday breads, sweet rolls and dumpling bites.  

Really, any entree, bread or dessert that requires scratch dough. If you're looking for a deliciously easy appetizer for your next potluck, party or football get-together these mini popper rolls are perfect. I highly recommend doubling this recipe because these bite size rolls tend to disappear quickly. 

If you would like to get this recipe, pop over to the Rhodes Out of The Oven Blog where I'm guest posting today, and sharing the full recipe with step by step instructions on how to make these easy mini appetizer rolls.     

Mini Jalapeno Popper Rolls 

8 - 10 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed, but still cold
4 - slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 - jalapeno peppers (fresh), sliced
4 - 6 ounces cream cheese, cubed
4 - 6 ounces of cheddar cheese, cubed
1 – tablespoon butter to brush on baked rolls

Place 8-10 frozen dinner rolls on a greased baking sheet and let the rolls sit at room temperature until thawed but still cold.

While the rolls are thawing, cook the bacon, drain and crumble.

Cut each roll in half making 16-20 dough pieces. Roll each dough piece into a 3 inch circle.

Place one piece of cream cheese, cheddar cheese (if using) one to two jalapeno slices and 2-3 pieces of crumbled bacon on each dough circle.

Gather each end of the dough circle and pinch together and rolling into a ball. Place each dough ball on a greased 9 inch pie pan or baking pan.

Continue filling and rolling the remaining dough balls. Let the dough rest in a warm place and slightly rise (about 30 minutes).

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake the rolls for 20 - 25 minutes or until the rolls are lightly golden brown and cooked through.

Remove from oven, cool slightly and serve.
