Jalapeno Poppers

Petite Sweet Pepper Poppers
One of my family's favorite summertime appetizers is Jalapeno Poppers.  They're quick and easy to make.  The photo above is from a batch I made for a potluck at work.  I also had some petite sweet peppers at home, so I also stuffed those for my coworkers that might not like a hot pepper.

Jalapeno Poppers
23 jalapenos, halved and seeded
1 lb pork sausage (turkey sausage for low fat)
8oz cream cheese (Neufchâtel for low fat)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Brown meat and drain fat.
Add both cheeses to the meat and mix until blended.
Stuff each pepper half with filling (mound it! It cooks down!)
Place on cookie sheet, filling side up.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned.
