Alternative Cooking Methods for Jalapeno Poppers
There are two other cooking methods that work well with these keto jalapeno poppers. They are much harder to film!
Cooking In A Cast Iron Pan
To cook these in a cast iron pan, preheat the pan on medium-low while you prepare the jalapeno poppers as instructed. Then, place the poppers in the cast iron pan and cook approximately 10 minutes per side. Keep a close eye on them so that they don't burn.

An Air-Fryer is fantastic for cooking bacon. And especially fantastic if you like crunchy bacon.
