Sausage Stuffed Peppers

Sausage Stuffed Peppers


I was struggling one night to come up with an appetizer to take to a party, so in my panic, I combined ingredients from two of my favorite recipes to come up with this delicious appetizer.

I used the filling from my Stuffed Mushrooms recipe with the concept of my Jalapeno Poppers recipe. It made for the perfect appetizer, and everyone loved it!

Isn't it fun when things come together out of the unexpected? I sure think so!
