With the summer coming to an end and barbecues making their final appearances soon, why not include this enticing, flavour-bursting recipe to round off all the meat that's being grilled!

I went with baking my jalapeños in the oven, but you could very much grill it as well.

I've used prosciutto instead of bacon here because the cooking time is much quicker, which lessens the risk of burning your jalapeños. The thinness and softness of prosciutto also means that you're more likely to get a crispy finish and an easier bite. But of course, if you prefer bacon, don't let me stop you!

Additionally, I used cream cheese as even if these jalapeño goodies sit on the table for a little while, you don't need to worry too much about the stuffing getting stiff and gummy.
