Sausage and Three-Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

I truly might be turning into a 
Jalapeno Popper Junkie.

With loads and loads of jalapenos growing in the garden I'm experimenting with them in every conceivable way.
Poppers, salsa, jelly, in cocktails just to name a few.

And yes, 
these are the epitome of yummy, cheesy deliciousness all stuffed into a spicy jalapeno and wrapped in bacon.
 (Also, a very good use of a jalapeno if you ask me.)

These little beauties were so darn good,
you just can't stop eating them.

(I think I burnt my tongue because I was eating them straight off the grill--don't do this.)

Sausage and Three-Cheese Stuffed Jalapeno Poppers

12 jalapeno peppers, split lengthwise with seeds/veins discarded
1/2 pound hot sausage, cooked and drained
3 ounces cream cheese
3 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
3 ounces shredded monterey jack cheese
12 slices of bacon, cut in half

Preheat grill to 350 degrees. Prepare pepper and lay on a flat grilling pan.  In a large pan, cook sausage and drain. Set aside.  Add cheese to sausage mixture.  Stuff each jalapeno with sausage/cheese mixture. Wrap each with piece of bacon.  Secure with a toothpick.

Grill at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until bacon is crispy and cheese is melted.
