Prep Time
Cook Time
Ready In

"For sausage-cream cheese jalapenos, brown 1/2 pound bulk sausage meat, cool to almost room temperature then mix into the cream cheese mixture and omit the crumbled bacon on top, this will increase the cream cheese mixture slightly so you may want to use a few more jalapenos. These may be prepared and refrigerated until ready to bake"

Grease a baking sheet.

Step 3

Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise; remove seeds and membranes (use disposable rubber gloves for this and DO NOT TOUCH YOUR FACE!)

Step 4

In a large saucepan, boil peppers in water for 5-10 minutes (the longer you boil the peppers, the milder they become) drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.

In a small bowl mix the cream cheese with minced garlic, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese until smooth.

Step 6

Spoon about 2 teaspoonfuls into each jalapeno half; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and crumbled bacon (use as much as you like --- at this point you may refrigerate until ready to bake).

Place on a greased baking sheet.

Bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Bacon bacon, I used bacon. We are foodies who love our bacon! These were a great appetizer for the Superbowl and the plate was empty by half time. With only 5 of us there you could say we liked them a lot!

Bergy (RIP" Forever in our Kitchen)

Love “hot” Jalapeno Poppers- This one is super Mmmmmm- The thing that I found could be a problem is the size of the Jalapenos.. How much filling will it hold? I pushed it to the limit! I was only making 3 Jalapenos (cut in half – two appetizers) and I cut the ingredients accordingly – It worked so well. Great – great flavors. I didn’t pre boil the peppers cause we love it “HOT” and crunchy -They were perfect . The bake time is right on 400F 10 minutes. Thanks Kitt for a lovely Sunday appie with our Mart Marts!
