Grilled Jalapenos Recipe

When barbecuing the friends at her Cleveland, Texas home, Catherine Hollie also uses the grill to serve up hot appetizers. "These crowd-pleasing stuffed peppers have a bit of bite," she relates. "They were concocted by my son."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 24 fresh jalapeno peppers
  • 3/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 12 bacon strips, halved


  • 1. Wash peppers and remove stems. Cut a slit along one side of each pepper. Remove seeds; rinse and dry peppers.
  • 2. In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stuff peppers with sausage and wrap with bacon; secure with a toothpick.
  • 3. Grill peppers, uncovered, over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until tender and bacon is crisp, turning frequently. Yield: 2 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Great to prepare for guests who are on a carb-free or dairy free diet. Easy to assemble early in the day and place on grill when guests arrive. Try maple bacon!"

"My husband has been making them for years. He uses the meat from Johnsonville brats. Remove the meat from the casings. No need to cook first. Just stuff inside the peppers, wrap with bacon and grill. Awesome!!!"
