Meat Lovers Jalapeno Poppers

For the meat lovers out there lol

16 link Oscar Mayer, Smokies Sausage Little Cheese (Pork, Turkey)
8 Jalapeno Pepper
8 oz Philadelphia Cream Cheese
16 oz Jimmy Deans Pork Breakfast Sausage
8 slices Sliced Bacon
1/4 tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/4 tsp Salt

Preheat oven to 400 then reduce heat to 350 just before baking.
Remove caps from jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise and remove seeds and membranes.
Place one smokie sausage link into each half then smoosh 1T cream cheese into the cavity.
Mix the salt and pepper with the breakfast sausage and divide into 16 equal portions.
Encase each jalapeno half in the sausage as well as you can (if it won't go all the way around, make sure the open part of the pepper is securely covered).
Cut each back strip in half and wrap the jalapeno with it, making sure the end is on the bottom part.
Place in a single layer on a baking sheet that has sides (depending on the sausage, there can be a lot of grease) and place in the hot oven. Bake for approx 25 minutes, until bacon is crisp and the sausage is cooked through.

Makes 16 halves -nutritional info per half: 185cals; 16.5g fat; 2.1g carbs; less than .5g fiber; 8.3g protein

* Could use low fat sausage, etc and reduce the calories significantly. Could also just use 1/2oz sausage per popper half and reduce approx 50cals and 4g fat just from that.

I never thought of putting a lil' smokie in a jalapeno!!! What a great idea! I think I might use those baby bell peppers they sell at Sam's. I am not quite a jalapeno person, but dh sure is, I don't mind a sliver of one though. I can put little slivers of them into my bell pepper, with the smokie and all of the other ingredients. Great recipe, thanks Dottie!

I've made them without the sausage, too, just wrap the jalapeno/cheese/smokie in bacon and bake it off that way

Sounds like a high-speed collision of poppers and Scotch eggs!

Yum. Sounds like a meal to me - protein, dairy, vegetable...yeah!

Poppers ala Dottie

Thanks Dottie, I just came home with 24 gorgeous
jalapenos from the .99 store today. I was just going to do the bacon,
and cheeses stuffing but DH brought me home some good J. Dean
sausage from Costco today. Will give this a try.

Fresh It's a personal taste thing - I just don't care for the "pickled" taste of the canned ones when I make poppers.

Made the poppers yesterday, they are great left over too.

Last time I wrapped the raw bacon around and we found them
to be greasy. This time I pre-cooked the bacon at least half way.
Instead of wrapping I cut the bacon in half and just laid it on top
of the stuffing. They were great and not grease soaked.
