Great way to make poppers! I usually pan fry my bacon a little helps cut back on the grease.

These were super! I cut the jalepenos in half, and filled each half with cream cheese and a sausage before wrapping in bacon (didn't need the toothpick). We will be making more!

I also used some small sweet peppers for those who do not like hot, very yummy. Be sure to use center cut or higher quality bacon or may be too greasy. Quick and easy.

I baked mine for 40 minutes and they were still way too hot for my guests. I eat jalapeno peppers all the time and I even found them to be way too hot. Maybe next time I bake them for at least an hour.
