Saddling up my COLTS to charge San Diego! (And making some ABTs)

    OK so this is my third time around making ABTs...this time I think I have it mastered. In the past I have had trouble with my cheese melting out the sides or I didn't take the veins out and the Japs were so hot I could only eat one at a sitting. (And I love hot and spicy...I eat ground horseradish with my steaks and make some awesome Jap burgers that I will have to share at another time...oh yeah and one day I will share my Lizard Lick recipe.)

    I will do a lot more sharing of Qviews when I get moved and settled as I have been living in temporary housing for the last 4.5 months while getting relocated with my job.

    So the difference this time...and I didn't even need toothpicks:

    First I should say that I cut my peppers in half lengthwise like boats...and this time I used some nice big Banana Peppers just because they were calling me in the produce section saying that they longed to be ABTs. They were so large that the top half of the peppers sometimes were sliced into thirds...I digress.

    I took a whole slice of bacon and began by tucking one end of the bacon just under one end of the pepper. I then draped the bacon over the top of the cream cheese and pepper to the other end and began wrapping so that when I finished the first tucked end was wrapped in the bacon as well...this covered both ends so that the cheese could not ooze out of the ends. And in case you are wondering I LOVE bacon!

    So I guess that all I am reporting is my method of wrapping the bacon to work better for me. I'm sure this isn't a novel idea but I am pleased.

    I will go ahead and post some pictures now which are precooked and then will update later.

    Oh! And by the way...GO COLTS!

    Thanks! Yeah I will be around more...like I said when I get moved outta this temporary house and get all MY stuff outta storage.

    I would expect they will be ready in in a couple more hours or so. They have been on for about 1 and 1/4 hours. They smell really good!

    And a Colts update...Colts are up by 3 at the half! Way to take away that 89 yard run from San Diego! If you don't play nice you don't get to score!

    LOL, you did take the seeds and veins out the first time didn't you. [​IMG]

    I love ABT's but you should fine with the bananna peppers far less heat.
    I don't fine the Jalapeno's hot at all as long as the seeds are removed.

    And I concur, go Colts. Anyone but the Patsies. [​IMG]

    The first time I removed the seeds but left the veins because I normally prepare them that way for whatever I am cooking but I suppose I got an extra hot batch that time. I will say that I tried the vein itself from these current peppers (banana, hungarian) and they were much hotter than the bananas that I grow in my garden in the summertime. These were purchased at the grocery store as it's too cold here in Indiana for a pepper garden in January.

    Just made up some trial run ABT's for my gas grill. I decided to stick a seed in my mouth. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll remember to add a few to the next ABT's I do when my neighbor comes over.
