Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños

I made these for a friends birthday and they came out yummy.

Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Jalapeños


~12 lg Jalapeños
1 package thick bacon

8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cp shredded mozzarella cheese
1 package hot sausages (I used Johnson Firecracker)
1 Tbs Italian seasoning
Salt & Pepper

Take the sausage out of the casing and cook. Drain and crumble.

Half and de-seed the jalapeños. Dice one jalapeno.

For Filling: In a large bowl mix cream cheese, mozzarella, seasoning, crumbled sausage and the one diced jalapeño.

Spoon filling into each jalapeño half. Wrap with half a piece of bacon. You can secure it with a toothpick. If you don't the bacon may shrink and unwrap from the jalapeño.

Bake at 400* for 20 min then increase to broil for 5 min.

The silicone baking sheet pictured is a favorite. It allows grease to drip away from what you are baking and keeps the item raised up. Below is a link if you are interested in seeing more details
