Here in the South, stuffed jalapenos are a must at every party or bbq. We enjoyed this version with the sausages nestled between the cream cheese. I used pre-cooked bacon as it was still pliable enough to wrap around the peppers. I also par-boiled the peppers whole for 5 minutes and then cooled them off as it lessens the heat a bit. You can also bake these peppers on a rack in your dish to allow the grease to drain off. Made for Spring PAC, March, 2013.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350.
  2. Pull stems off jalapeños and rinse.
  3. Slice jalapeños in half, lengthwise, and remove all seeds.
  4. Fill (but don't overfill) each jalapeño half with cream cheese.
  5. Place cocktail frank between two jalapeño halves.
  6. Wrap one slice of bacon around stuffed jalapeño and secure with a toothpick.
  7. Place stuffed jalapeños in a shallow baking dish and cook on 350 for at least 30-45 minutes (do not cook on a cookie sheet, otherwise bacon grease will get all over your oven).
  8. NOTE: The longer you cook the jalapeños, the less kick they will have. I would not recommend cooking for less than 30 minutes, however, since the bacon needs to be cooked thoroughly.
