Jalapeno Popper Mummy Recipe


  • 10 jalapeño peppers sliced in half lengthwise removing the ribs and seeds but leaving the stem if possible
  • 8 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • 8 ounces co-jack cheese shredded
  • 1 green onion finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Crescent roll dough – make your own or use 1 roll of packaged crescent roll dough
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • Eyeballs – can use cream cheese and black olives I used googly eyes that I already had


  1. Preheat oven 400° F
  2. In a small bowl, mix the cream cheese, cheese, green onion and salt until well combined.
  3. Roll out the crescent dough – If using store-bought open and separate into 4 rectangles with the perforation in the middle of each. Seal the perforation with your fingers. Using a pizza cutter, cut each rectangle into 10 long pieces lengthwise.
  4. Fill each jalapeño half with the cheese mixture.
  5. Wrap each jalapeño half with the dough, leaving a space for the eyes.
  6. Brush with egg mixture and place on baking sheet.
  7. Bake in oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and press the eyes into the cheese in the open space between the dough.
  8. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes

**Important - Remember to tell your guests to remove the eyes before eating if you aren’t using olives.
