These Rhodes Bake N Serv Rolls are wrapped in bacon, then dunked into a very mild Jalapeno Cheese Dip that is excellent!
Now that my kids are teens, I have found that they are more open to eating various foods. New foods have always been pretty easy to get them to try, I have a two bite rule. Usually the first bite for them is all in their head on how they are set to not like it, and if they have that second bite and still just really dislike it, I know that at that time, they have given it a fair shot. I'm happy and honestly, we have found that they pretty much enjoy a lot of different foods. This summer we set out to try new things, new fruits, veggies, and even some candy. While trying new things, we found a farm stand that has amazing prices and I decided that I could splurge and try some jalapenos. I know I know! I'm so behind the times. But I have a low tolerance for spicy foods- growing up the hottest thing in our fridge was banana peppers, our family just didn't use spices like that. I found gorgeous peppers for just a couple dollars and began trying new recipes with them. And I am so excited to share this recipe with you, it was so delicious and fun to make with my daughter. And everyone really enjoyed this dip, how could they not? It's got bacon!
These Rhodes Bake N Serv Rolls are wrapped in bacon, then dunked into a very mild Jalapeno Cheese Dip that is excellent! The whole dish is baked together as a whole and is perfect for putting together for a party!
To begin, we need 10 Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls.
Grab a kid. They definitely can help create this dip. Thaw the rolls at least half way until you can cut them a little easier.
Each roll makes two dippers, so cut in half with either a knife or a pair of kitchen scissors.
Cut your bacon strips in half, then place one half roll on the bacon strip and roll up.
Place into a greased 10 inch oven safe pie plate.
Continue cutting all the rolls, and wrapping them in bacon.
Once you have all the rolls cut and wrapped, you have this fun circle of bacon-y roll goodness, with a nice big circle opening in the center.
Let's move on to making the dip.
I sliced and chopped the Jalapeno's because they can be quite spicy and you can wash your hands, but the oils stay on your skin., so I didn't want my daughter to have that on her hands. It might be a good idea to use a glove on your hand to avoid having the oils on your skin.
Remove the top of the pepper, then slice in half. Take out all the seeds and the white parts to control the heat of the jalapeno. Then chop finely. Reserve a tablespoon of the pepper for the top of the dip.
In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and sour cream.
Then add in the jalapeno.
Finally add the shredded cheese, reserving a couple tablespoons of cheese for the topping later.
Spoon cream cheese mixture into center of pie plate. Cook and crumble two slices of bacon
Top the dip mixture with crumbled bacon and reserved cheese and jalapenos.
To eat, just pull up one of those bacon wrapped rolls, and dunk into the dip. Make sure to get a nice big dip into the mixture.
