We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Andouille in ABT's

I'm switching up my ABT's a little today. I'm using a huge link of fresh andouille instead of little smokies. Should I boil it,or grill it, before putting it in the jalapeƱos?

    I'm assuming you're going to take it out of the casing and stuff the jalapenos. I certainly wouldn't boil andouille, and grilling it would make it difficult to stuff into the peppers. If you feel that you must precook it I'd just brown it and ensure it's loose (as in fairly small pieces) so it's easier to work with.

    It's a huge piece....one piece is over a pound. I figured I'd cook it, cut it into strips and stuff into jalapeƱos, like I do with smokies. Once inside the pepper, it won't fully cook without completely burning the bacon wrapper. So, it needs to be cooked in some way beforehand.

    Also, has anyone ever cooked ABT's with only half peppers wrapped in bacon, or does the cream cheese melt and run up that way? I've only ever done the two halves put back together to hold the cheese in. Company coming over to watch Georgia put the smack down on Clemson tonight. I figured if I cooked halves, they might last a little longer.

    I've done them as halves. The trick is to cut them so they remain like a canoe and so they'll sit as level as possible.

    Cutting it into strips is a good idea. I'd grill them for added flavor if you're doing it that way.
