These things are the best beer food ever. They're almost too easy to make.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 pie plates with aluminum foil.

  • Pinch about 1/2 teaspoon sausage off and roll into a small oval shape. Stuff the sausage piece into a pepper. Repeat with remaining sausage and peppers.

  • Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil into each foil-lined pie plate and divide the stuffed peppers into each one. Rotate the plates to roll and coat poppers in the oil.

  • Roast poppers in the preheated oven until the sausage is cooked through and the poppers are very slightly dried out, about 20 minutes. Let cool before serving. Arrange onto a serving platter and sprinkle with parsley.

Cook's Note:

One pound of sausage will fill about 60 peppers.

I love this recipe! This is one of the few things I look forward to making and eating (sad isn't it?). I use bulk mild sausage from the butcher down the street and (like most sausage) it's a little greasy. That said I find the olive oil is just to make sure the peppers don't stick and not for flavor - so for me it's optional given the sausage grease. Read More

These "Sausage-Stuffed Cherry Pepper Poppers" were excellent! I served them beside a tossed salad for a "fast and easy" meal! I will definitely be making these again. So yummy! Thank you Chef John for sharing your recipe. Read More

These were a HUGE hit at a party I brought them to! I followed the recipe as-is with the exception of using bulk not linked sausage and I added some Parmesan and garlic powder. So quick and easy but packs a lot of flavor! Read More

I really tried to like this receipe. I used hot italian sausage regular italian sausage and merguez sausage and didn't like any of them. The peppers are great and I've used them in other dishes. I disliked the sausage and my family said they were just ok. Read More
