Sausage Stuffed Jalopenas

Sausage Stuffed Jalopenas
1 pound ground Italian sausage (or regular pork or whatever appeals to you)
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (original recipe used parmesan)
1 pound jalapenos, halved lengthwise and seeded
1 green onion, finely chopped




Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Place sausage in a skillet over medium heat, and cook until evenly brown. Drain grease.  In a bowl, mix the sausage, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and green onion. Spoon about 1 tablespoon sausage mixture into each jalapeno half. Arrange stuffed halves in a baking dish.  Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until bubbly and lightly browned.


***Tips on seeding the jalapenos. 1) Wear gloves throughout the entire process, then remove right after so you don't transfer to sink faucet, cabinet handles, etc. 2) I love my little lemon zester tool for seeding but a small melon baller works great too. 3) As you half and seed the jalapenos, put into a bowl of continuous running water.  This helps soften to bake better and removes some heat.***
