Poppin' Poppers

I know you all, and I know you are scrambling for recipes to use for your Superbowl parties. A few things about me. 1. I couldn't care less about football if I tried. In fact, I do not even know who is playing in the Superbowl and refuse to find out who the participants are until Sunday. Even then, I will only recall the colors of their "outfits." I know. I am un-American. 2. The only reason I ever partake in Superbowl festivities is because it is the only day that it is socially acceptable to eat chips and dip and beer for dinner. All facts here, folks. So as I was saying, you are going to need some recipes and you are going to need this recipe right here. These stuffed jalapenos end up at almost every gathering I host or attend and let me tell you, they are gone in 5 seconds flat. Make 'em, then you will understand. 
Poppin' Poppers

Ingredients
1 lb bulk hot pork sausage
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
22 large jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise and seeded

Directions
In a large skillet, cook the sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.
In a small bowl, combine the cream cheese and Parmesan cheese; fold in sausage.
Spoon about 1 tablespoonful into each jalapeno half.
Place in two ungreased 13-in x 9-in baking dishes. Bake at 425° for 15-20 minutes or until filling is lightly browned and bubbly.

Is your mouth watering? Wash it down with beer. Trust me. You will be  thinking of me on Superbowl Sunday while stuffing your face with these and watching your boys in their outfits. Love you. Mean it. XOXO

  13. The only reason I know who is playing this year is because it's my home town team (not that I cheer for them at all) so it's all over the news. I like it for the same reason you do, I can eat fatty food and not feel guilty!
    My husband would LOVE this recipe so I'm totally stealing it.

  16. Just had some at a super bowl party. Pretty amazing. Watch out for some lingering seeds though. Can make them unexpectedly and painfully HOT! :)
