15ml (1T) olive oil

6 slices Eskort Streaky Bacon, chopped into pieces

1 roll puff pastry

1 tub (230g) cream cheese, softened

5ml (1t) garlic powder

200g cheddar cheese


ground black pepper

1 packet (380g) Eskort American Hot Dogs Regular

8 jalapeños, ends and seeds removed and halved lengthwise

1 egg, beaten 


  • Preheat oven to 180°C and grease a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Heat olive oil in a frying pan and fry bacon until crispy. Remove from heat, drain on paper towel and set aside.
  • In a bowl combine cream cheese, garlic powder, bacon and cheddar.
  • Season with salt and pepper and stir until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Roll out the pastry on a flour-strewn surface and spread the cream cheese mixture evenly onto the puff pastry. Slice the pastry into strips.
  • Cut the American Hot Dogs to suit the length of the jalapeños. Pair a sausage with a jalapeño slice and roll it up in a strip of pastry until covered. Repeat until all the jalapeño slices are used.
  • Place the pastry rolls on a baking tray and brush with egg wash.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and serve warm.
