Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Poppers : These best ever bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers are insanely delicious! They are stuffed with sausage and cream cheese and wrapped in bacon and melted cheese. Great for tailgating, too.
We love finger foods and all sorts of appetizer recipes at the Smith house. They’re great to serve at parties or family gatherings, and we especially enjoy them on family fun nights when we want something to snack on while we’re watching a movie together or playing one of our favorite games.
These bacon wrapped jalapeño poppers is a finger food favorite. It’s a jalapeño pepper that’s been halved and stuffed with sausage, cream cheese, and cheddar. Then, it’s wrapped with a half slice of bacon and baked for a bit until the bacon is cooked and the peppers are softened.
If you’re looking for tailgating food ideas or just a fun finger food to serve at your next gathering, add this one to your list. I’m sure it will be a crowd-pleasing favorite at your house, too. Just make sure you make plenty to feed your crowd. It’s one of those appetizers that are gone before you know it.
Anyone who loves a spicy finger food will devour them. You can also make them even spicier by choosing a different sausage or even a different type of spicier cheese. Just keep that in mind when you are shopping for the sausage and cheese. But they do have a spicy kick just from the peppers and even the mild sausage I used for my recipe.
