Sausage Jalapeno Poppers

Sausage Jalapeno Poppers


"This is a recipe for stuffed jalapenos I had at a baby shower in Texas. I loved them and have made them for every party since. They are always anxiously requested, a HIT AT EVERY PARTY!!!! Use toothpicks to secure the bacon around the stuffed jalapenos. Be sure to use a pan that won't let the bacon drip all over the oven while cooking!"

I've been making a version of this for several years. This is the first time I have added sausage to the mix. I will make them this way from now on. I took a batch to work last Friday and they...

What a hit with everyone at the party! The reviewer who mentioned brushing the bacon with honey before wrapping the pepper was right on! It adds that background flavor that makes people wonder. ...

I have made this recipe for three different parties, and each time, have been asked for the recipe. This is a fantastic appetizer. I have not been able to make it in less than 60 minutes, so i...

These were sooo good. You will need more bacon than listed (consider 30 jalapenos cut in half=60 individual appetizers=60 bacon 1/2's) and they do take time, but so worth it!

Made these for a Super Bowl Party. A huge hit. They were gone before some of the guests even arrived. My daughter said a friend of hers makes them all the time. She soaks the bacon in honey befo...

Thank you for this receipe! I get so tired of all the fried foods and this is fairly quick and they froze well too..... I made half with the sausage the others were just as wonderful without. ...

I have to admit I got confused by the directions. It said it made 60 appetizers, but cutting bacon in HALF only yields 30 slices. Whatever. They got average reviews from our Super Bowl guests...

Took this to the concert picnic. Was told to bring it next week! Huge hit with everyone!!
