  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Fill the jalapeno pepper halves with softened cream cheese, then place a smoked sausage into each pepper on top of the cheese. Wrap each piece with a half strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place the peppers onto a baking sheet and brush with the barbeque sauce.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is crispy, about 30 minutes.

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!

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!
