Anyway, the hubs loved these. When I say loved I mean he ate a ton on Monday, then ate a ton more after the viewing on Tuesday, and then was saying how he could eat some more on Wednesday. These will definitely be made again and he's already thinking of ways to kick them up a notch.
12 jalapeno peppers
1 8oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1 C. parmesan cheese
1 lb. bulk sausage
1.) Pre-heat oven to 350.
2.) Brown sausage in a medium skillet over medium high heat.
3.) Slice each pepper lengthwise to make 24 while browning sausage. Scrape out all of the seeds and set aside.
4.) In a small bowl mix together browned sausage, softened cream cheese, and parmesan cheese.
5.) Stuff about a tablespoon or so into each pepper half.
6.) Bake peppers in oven until bubbly and golden brown.
Paula advised that you can also use the zesty sausage and grill the peppers if you would like. Daniel is looking forward to wrapping a piece of bacon around them and grilling them.
