Brittany's Jalapeno Popper
The following recipe makes 30 poppers. When I made them for the party I had leftover filling so depending on the size of the jalapenos you may be able to make a few more.
-15 jalapenos cut in half (remove seeds)
-1 package of cream cheese
-3/4 lb. of hot sausage (use the loose kind, not links)
-1 bag of shredded white cheddar
-Drizzle jalapeņos with olive oil, salt & pepper
-Bake them at 425 for about 7 minutes to soften a bit
-Cook meat and drain
-Mix cream cheese, half bag of shredded cheese, and meat.
-After baking the jalapeņos, remove from oven, stuff with mix, sprinkle remainder of shredded cheese on top and place back in oven
-Take out when cheese is golden brown.
