Grilled Stuffed Jalapenos

First off, I have to say, the above picture is my Uncle David' is this recipe. I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the finished peppers we made, as they were pretty much inhaled as soon as we took them off the grill. Oh well. Can't blame us.

Here's what you need to make these bad boys:
  • Jalapenos

  • Breakfast sausage

  • Velveeta cheese

  • Cream cheese

  • Bacon

When buying the jalapenos for this recipe, make sure you pick out the really big ones..."stuffin size" as we call 'em. Get as many as you want.

Chop off the ends and core the insides out. After you core them, rinse them under water to make sure all the seeds are outta there.

Cook the breakfast sausage. I used about 1/3 of the roll of sausage for a dozen peppers. We usually cook a few dozen peppers, and in that case use about 1/2 of the package of sausage. Mix up 1 pack cream cheese, the cooked breakfast sausage, and grated velveeta cheese (a handful or two). I used cheddar here, as I didn't have any veveeta on hand...

Once you got it mixed up, stuff each pepper. You're going to have to use your fingers here...

Wrap 1/2 a piece of bacon over each one. By the way, check out this cool jalapeno rack! It's a "custom design" by Uncle David. :) You just stick each jalapeno on a shish kabob, sit it on the rack...
and then sit the rack on the grill. I also didn't get a picture of the jalapenos cooking, so this one is from my sister. Steph, where's your bacon?!

Leave on the grill until they're how you like 'em. The longer they cook, the less hot the jalapenos become. We made some for superbowl and Danny was smoking a big Boston Butt (yum!), so we let them hang out on the smoker for quite a while. Obviously, they took a lot longer on the smoker since it's indirect heat, but boy were they good!
