Doing some poppers this weekend. Was planning to stuff with cream cheese, roasted peppers and sausage, then wrap with bacon. Any input on the type of sausage to use? Or am I way off track here? Thanks for everyone's help!

  • You are fine. I like to mix grated cheese in with the cream cheese. My favourites are cream cheese mixed with gruyere and diced pineapple with a shrimp in the middle

    I am doing the same this weekend. I am using bob evens spicy ground sausage and mixing cheddar and cream cheese.

  • I like the pineapple shrimp idea. How long does this cook for? Is there a risk of overcooking the shrimp?
  • Not really. I just cook til the bacon is crisp and they are always fine. Is Nelson your last name? Mine is too

    I add garlic chopped small and Rudy's dry rub to the cream cheese. I only add sausage if I'm doing them without bacn. I like to try different ways
  • Yep.  Another Nelson here.  This one's a newebie though.  Having fun with it. 

    Thanks for the advice.  I am thinking  pulled pork with sausage stuffed/bacon wrapped poppers might be a little heavy on the pork.  Shrimp might be a nice change of pace.  Do you buy tiny shrimp or chop some up?

  • I usually do what I have in the freezer. If they are large, I cut them in half lengthwise. When I do them I slice the chili from bottom to top without going all the way through. I stuff them and the stem stays on as a handle (most of the time). I usually pick through the tray at the store and pick out smallish peppers so they are like two bites each

    I'd choose one -- pulled pork or sausage, & then wrap in bacon.  I also add grated cheese to the  cream cheese (can't go wrong with gruyere like Little Steven mentioned).  I love the shrimp idea, too!

  • Oh!  Well in that case go for it! There is no such thing as "too much pork", IMO.  :D
