I don’t think I have ever been so excited about a recipe as I am about these Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Jalapeños! Well ok maybe not so much the recipe as the I am about eating these……all of these!
Another winning recipe from my nephew! This one is for sure a grand slam, although come to think of it all of his recipes have been!
The first time Bunk made these for me I was visiting them in Colorado. Now I am a Midwest farm girl born and bread, heart and soul, but I do love me some time in the mountains! Truly lucky my sister moved out there so I have a place to stay and a reason to go!
We use a breakfast flavored sausage not Italian sausage in ours, but you feel free to use what your family likes best! I like more of the pork and cheese flavors that come out than the Italian spices for this particular recipe. You could also sprinkle the mozzarella on top with the parmesan as well, I just like mixing it in with the cream cheese.
