Sausage Pepper Poppers
You have guests coming tomorrow and you need to feed them some sort of appetizer.

Quickly run to the store and grab a bag of mini sweet peppers, cream cheese and other essential ingredients.
You bring out the sausage pepper poppers and your guests are eating them like they’re going out of style!
You did it…you pleased your guests with an appetizer that looks fancy, but took merely 12 minutes to cook.
What Is A Sausage Pepper Popper
You may be thinking that a pepper popper uses jalapenos for the pepper.
Well, you’re right, they normally do…but honestly, you can use any pepper you desire.
Sweet peppers add a nice sweetness without alot of spice to this recipe.
With a sausage and cream cheese filling that melts so nicely in the oven, you just can’t go wrong eating this snack!
Can I Use Something Besides Sausage?
Absolutely! You can literally choose whatever meat you have available, chop it up and mix it in.
Sausage tastes amazing in this recipe, but you could use bacon, ham, ground beef, ground turkey, chicken and more!
You could also choose to not use any meat.
What Do I Need To Make These Pepper Poppers?
The list of supplies and ingredients are provided below!
- mini sweet peppers
- cream cheese
- shredded cheddar cheese
- cooked ground sausage
- cookie sheet
- parchment paper
How Should I Store Sausage Pepper Poppers?
You can simply store any leftovers in a container with an airtight lid in the refrigerator. They should keep for several days.
Reheating The Poppers
If you have any leftovers (and that’s a big IF), you can definitely reheat them in the oven or microwave.
Microwaving a couple poppers on a plate for about 30 seconds will give them that warm cheesy texture again.
Of course this appetizer is best when served fresh from the oven the first time around, but they are still superb when reheated!
