Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Bacon Wrapped Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

A delightful appetizer with the right balance of heat and cheese!
Author Jamie

Ingredients

  • 1 package of ground sausage browned and drained of excess grease
  • 1 package 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 30 Jalapeno peppers approximately depending on size
  • 2 pounds of sliced bacon less if you want to cut each slice in half
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Brown your sausage in a skillet and drain off any excess grease.
  3. Place browned sausage, cream cheese and shredded cheese in a mixing bowl and mix together well.
  4. Cut all the Jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise. Remove all seeds and I like to scrap off the ribs inside the pepper as well.
  5. Stuff each pepper half with the sausage and cheese mixture.
  6. Wrap each stuffed pepper half with a slice of bacon. Use toothpicks to secure the bacon. I use several toothpicks if necessary.
  7. Place the bacon wrapped poppers on a oven safe rack over a baking pan that can catch the bacon grease as they cook.
  8. Cook for 15-25 minutes or until bacon is brown and crispy.

Recipe Notes

It is very important that these cook in a way that will allow the bacon grease to drip down away from the poppers. Otherwise the poppers will end up being very greasy.
You can use spicy sausage to add even more flavor.
You can cook these in a Nuwave oven for about 15 minutes.
