  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 pie plates with aluminum foil.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

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.

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.

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.
