I recently had a friend that posted a pic of an infant drooling over bacon with a caption of “Love at First Sight”. My first reaction – maybe if it had been jalapenos. Second thought – Stuffed Jalapenos.
That said I love my recipe for Dragon Bites – bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed jalapenos. But I’ve found another recipe that rivals it in taste and fire!
Originally, this recipe called for Parmesan cheese and was nowhere near as spicy. I changed that and now these cheese and sausage stuffed jalapenos are equally as fantastic as the Dragon Bites with a lot less work …
12 large jalapenos (about 3 inches long)
1 lb. (250 g) spicy GF sausage
8 oz. (250 g) cream cheese
8 oz. (225 g) Pepper Jack Cheese
1 tbsp (15 g) minced garlic
1 tbsp (15 g) crushed red peppers
1 green onion
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
- While your sausage is frying up with your garlic and red peppers, wash and slice the peppers in half lengthwise so they form small boats.
- Drain your sausage and mix with your shredded cheese, diced green onions and cream cheese. You may have to get in with your hands to ensure that it mixes well.
- Spoon 1 large tablespoon into each boat and then cook for about 20 minutes or they just start to brown.
- Serve and enjoy!
