Jalapeno Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Goat Cheese


At any given time we have 10+ kinds of cheese in our fridge. Mom prefers Swiss, while Grandpa loves pepperjack. On the other hand, Grandma reaches for American.

However, one cheese I usually have all to myself is goat cheese. I love its tangy flavor and creamy texture, but my family turn up their nose!

I’m determined to show them how awesome it is so I came up with this recipe. Who could turn down bacon and jalapeno?

My family loved all the different flavors. The smoky bacon, creamy goat cheese, and spicy jalapenos complement each other perfectly!

It’s also the first ever savory whoopie pie I’ve made. I LOVE the classic chocolate marshmallow version, so why not try a savory version? They’re the perfect grab and go appetizer for summer entertaining.

While they didn’t come right out and say they’re goat cheese lovers, the empty platter speaks for itself!

Joan of Arc Goat Cheese

For this recipe I chose to use Joan of Arc goat cheese. This brand of traditional goat cheese has been around since 1918.

  4. This recipe looks amazing, except my family can’t stand goat cheese. Do you have a recommendation of another filling to use?

    • Thanks Chris!

      Do they like cream cheese? That would be my first choice as its tangy and goes great with bacon! 🙂

  5. I was wondering if you would serve this as an appetizer or more of a side dish?
