"This was passed from a friend who is a firefighter and he would make these when it was his turn to cook for the crew. These are requested at every get together now. When finished baking, you can grill to get a softer pepper skin. Enjoy!" — MANDY1975

jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
small smoked sausages (such as Lit'l Smokies®)
1 (1 pound) package
thin-sliced bacon, cut in half
Call the recipe police, I tweaked! I had half a pkg of Smokies that needed using. My jalapeños were really big and long so instead of setting the sausages into the cream cheese I processed the two together then filled the peppers. I didn't have bacon but did have a pkg of real bacon bits so I turned the peppers upside down into the bits. I intended to brush with BBQ sauce before doing the bacon but forgot so I used that for dipping. Unfortunately my jalapeños were totally without fire so that element was missing. I will play with this again with smaller peppers and might add green onions and cilantro to the cream cheese.
these were ok to me. It was, I think just to much flavors going on at one time. I think I will stick to eating my bacon wrapped smokies and jalapeno poppers seperately.
Wrapping the bacon completely around is a must as the jalapenos soften while baking and make them tough to eat as finger food. I found the the bbq sauce you use changes this dish a lot. My family liked a sweet and smoky bbq sauce. Good stuff!
this was great my kids and grandkids loved this and it wasn't hot at all we left out the barbeque sauce thank you for this recipe now I can buy more jalapenos
These were time consuming but very flavorful and worth it in the end. I used the real bacon bits to make things a little easier. Note the error in the ingredient list, 30 peppers halved would require 60 lil smokies instead of the 30 listed. Thanks for the great recipe!
These were a great big hit during a party we had. Even the kids loved them!
Made this on Easter, my Family loved this! some peppers were hot and others were not...I forgot the BBQ...but was still delicious! Will make again!
