Sausage Stuffed, Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos
- 2 lbs. Stripling's Pan Sausage, any flavor
- 2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese, softened
- 30 jalapeno chile peppers

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Brown sausage and drain. Mix with the cream cheese. Cut jalapenos in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds. Stuff each jalapeno half with equal portions of the sausage and cream cheese mixture. Brush slices of bacon with honey. Wrap each jalapeno half piece of bacon. Secure bacon with toothpicks. Arrange wrapped jalapenos in a large, shallow baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 minutes, or until the bacon is evenly brown. *For crispier bacon partially cook bacon in microwave prior to wrapping jalapenos.
