Reviews for Bacon Jalapeno Poppers
"Everyone loved these. Disappeared very quickly. Fairly simple to make."
"I added chopped onions and garlic to the mixture. It doesn't matter how many I make, one time it was 4 dozen, they all go!"
"Can't believe the recipe allows for 2 poppers per person. lol They do disappear fast, so make lots. Our version has jalapeno half, stuffed with cream cheese, a little smokie sausage on top, wrapped with 1/2 piece of bacon, then grill till done. We never have any left. Enjoy! These are awesome anyway you make them."
"oh and secure them with toothpicks"
"i meant to say fill each half with the sausage/cream cheese mixture and put 1/2 slice of bacon around each jalapeno half. sorry :)"
