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!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 30 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 30 small smoked sausages (such as Lit'l Smokies®)
  • 1 (1 pound) package thin-sliced bacon, cut in half
  • 60 toothpicks
  • ½ cup barbeque sauce

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. 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. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is crispy, about 30 minutes.

  1. 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
  2. delicious!
  3. These were a great big hit during a party we had. Even the kids loved them!
  4. 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!
  5. Five stars for sure! These little guys are tastey!!!!
  6. 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!
  7. This are a must at all gatherings.
  8. I dont care for jalapenos but these you just cant stop eating! Awesome!
  9. 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.
  10. 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 - Read more ...
