~-~-~-~- DRAGON CLAWS -~-~-~-~
You will need, large fresh jalapeno peppers, thick cut bacon, cheese (I prefer smoked aged cheddar, but whatever you prefer based on personal taste and availability should suffice), and 2 skewer sticks per 4 Dragon Claws.
Slice open the peppers and carefully destroy their innards with tip of knife, do not remove any part of innards. Stuff cheese inside the peppers and try to to trap it underneath the seeds and pepper guttywut material. Pinch slices shut, wrap tightly with bacon, and affix bacon with two skewer sticks, head and toe as it were, making sure the slice on each claw is oriented up the same direction on skewer assembly. Place on broiler pan (or similar rack object - NOT a cookie sheet) in oven preheated to 475 Fahrenheit WITH SLICED SIDE DOWN, for 12 minutes. Reduce heat to 425, turn Claw assembly over (slices up) for 25 minutes, or until bacon is fully cooked. (The reason for the orientation and 2 temperatures is the bacon on the unslicey side needs be browned before the cheese all melts and runs out, then when turned slices up, the roasting may take its sweet time and roll on in to perfection.) Remove from heat. Let stand until cooled down, at least 10 minutes, and eat with people you love.
