Grilled Jalapenos Recipe

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 Jimmy Dean® Premium Pork Sausage Roll
  • 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.
