A New Twist on Jalepeno Poppers

One of my favorite things to do is make appetizers for parties. Sometimes, I think people only invite me because they know I am going to cook something good. Here is a new appetizer that I tried recently for a friends get together. Only 4 ingredients!


2 (12 ounce) packages ground sausage
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
30 jalapeno chile peppers
1 pound sliced bacon, cut in half
1 1/2 cups cheddar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place ground sausage in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain sausage and place in a medium bowl. Mix with the cream cheese.

Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds. I found it easiest (and less of a burning feeling on your hands) to soak them in water when you are taking the seeds out. Stuff each jalapeno half with equal portions of the sausage and cream cheese mixture. Wrap with half slices of bacon. Secure bacon with toothpicks.

Arrange wrapped jalapenos in a large, shallow baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 minutes, or until the bacon is evenly brown.
