The Quillen tailgate,is one to visit on game day. With a TV broadcasting pregame shows and not one but two gigantic grills-what more could you want? (Recipe courtesy of "A Taste of Virginia Tech")
- 12 jalapeno peppers
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened slightly
- 8 slices cooked bacon, chopped
- 4 pounds raw pork sausage
Slice each jalapeno in half, lengthwise, keeping stems intact.
Remove the seeds and discard and fill one side of each pepper half with 1 tablespoon cream cheese placing a piece of cooked bacon on top of the cream cheese
Ball sausage around the whole stuffed pepper, leaving the stem out on one end. Grill or fry in a hot skillet with oil until the outer layer of sausage is browned and cooked through
**Cooks Note: This makes 24 very large tails. If that seems like too much for your crowd the recipe can easily be cut in half- but, when is too much tail ever a bad thing?
