These scrumptious jalapeno peppers are stuffed with cheese, wrapped in sausage and baked. They are great for spicing things up at Thanksgiving and are always requested.

Made these for my FIL. Used about 8 garden jalapenos and halved the other ingredients (really just eyeballed the cheese and spice). I had all the ingredients and was looking for a way to use the peppers up plus 1/2 lb. of sausage so this was perfect. I was also looking for a stuffed jalapeno recipe that didn't use cream cheese and wasn't deep fried so doubly perfect! The rolling out the sausage was a bit messy I ended up just pinching off sausage and molding around each pepper. My FIL said it was a 5 star (I asked him to rate 1-5 as I didn't want to eat any not that fond of stuffed peppers) he really liked the flavor of the sausage/spice combined with the jalapeno.

Heart attack on a toothpick! I tried to "healthify" this with turkey sausage and made my own seasoned bread crumbs (not Shake'n'Bake--which is full of fat & chemicals). I just don't like handling slimy canned chiles so I used fresh chiles. I picked serranos because they're consistently spicy and I like the flavor better than jalapenos which are too vegetal for my taste. The chiles steamed inside the sausage which kept them fresh tasting and tender-crisp. Cheese was melty pleasure: Yum! Next time I'll make the crumbs less spicy so each layer will be a unique experience on the tongue. I'll make this for one item in an appetizer course--surrounded by healthier selections!--at my next dinner party. Read More

We liked these a lot. I added a little Panko breadcrumbs to the seasoning mix to give it a little crunch. Read More

Incredible! After seeding and cutting the jalapenos in half I baked to reduce the spice. I mixed the sausage into the cheese mixture formed into jap. shaped "balls " and sprinkled cheddar on top. I made these the day before serving then threw in the oven to heat up. They were the first appetizer to disappear and even people who didn't like spice enjoyed these. Read More

Good easy fast. I left the jalapenos with the seeds in since we like spicier foods. Read More
