How To Make fire in the hole sausage wrapped poppers

  • 1
    In a large bag storage bag works great, empty both packs crackers and crush up. Set aside
  • 2
    Take the jalapenos and cut just the stem end off and clean out
  • 3
    Stuff jalapenos with shredded cheese. Be careful not to over stuff but pack tight
  • 4
    Take some sausage, make a thin patty in hand and wrap around the stuffed pepper completely
  • 5
    Roll the jalapeno pepper in the cracker crumbs pushing slightly to make sure they stick into the sausage

    Place on a baking sheet and bake for approximately 25 to 35 minutes in oven. Time depends on how big your peppers are. I always check them at the 25 minute mark.
