15 Min




2-boxes chopped broccoli
1-lb roll of jimmy dean sausage
1(15 oz )jar cheese whiz
12 pistolettes
1 stick of butter
garlic power to taste
chopped jalapenos to taste(i often leave out)

Directions Step-By-Step

Cut each pistolette -diagonally in half and scoop out the center.Place the removed bread in a bowl;set aside .Stand pistolettes in a large dish ,cut ends up.
Cook broccoli as per package directions ,and drain very well.Break up sausage and brown ;and drain.Combine with broccoli.Add Cheese Whiz and jalapenos to taste to broccoli and sausage mixture.Add the bread that was scooped out .Mix Well
Stuff mixture in the cavity of each pistolette.Do not over stuff,just stuff to the top.After stuffing all pistolette,melt butter and garlic in bowl.Put 1/2 teaspoon of the butter and garlic mixture on top of each pistolette.Bake at 450 degrees in the oven for app.12 to 15 minutes or untill crispy.
Personal Note::I often cut this recipe in half and just use 6 pistolettes ,if there is just two or three of us..If you can not find pistolettes,just use french rolls (mini)and cut in half.
