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.
