Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers w/ Whiskey Glaze

 

These Bacon wrapped Jalapeño Poppers are the perfect game day treat! Tasty and delicious! I simply took about six jalapeños, halved them. Stuffed them with cheese and a chicken sausage & cream cheese mixture. I then wrapped them with bacon and baked them in the oven for about 20 minutes. When they came out I drizzled a little whiskey glaze on top and voila…….Yummy poppers!

I decided to wrap some with Prosciutto just to see which one I liked better! Nevertheless, I liked the bacon more!
