Don’t let the holidays get you stressed about what to feed everyone! Make these delicious Sausage Stuffed Mini Peppers for a crowd-pleasing appetizer that is low on work and high on flavor.
We love entertaining for the holidays, but the stress of what to serve can be a little much sometimes. With just a few ingredients, including Jimmy Dean® sausage, you can make these Sausage Stuffed Mini Peppers quickly and easily. Everyone will be begging for more from the moment they take the first bite, making this appetizer a holiday (or anytime) win.
This stuffed mini peppers recipe is so easy because it only takes a few easy-to-find ingredients. I can always get the Jimmy Dean® sausage and other ingredients from our local Kroger store.
BBeing able to find everything I need in one store takes away a ton of stress surrounding prepping for holiday entertaining. Plus, I know I am getting a great value on high quality ingredients from Kroger so I feel better about my purchases.
I specifically chose the sage flavor of the Jimmy Dean® Sausage Roll. However, you can easily use any of the Jimmy Dean® Sausage varieties for this recipe. Each of the sausage roll options offers a signature blend of spices that can't be surpassed.
Using mini sweet peppers for this recipe makes them so easy to eat, too. You won't need to supply any utensils for your guests as they are small enough to just pop into your mouth.
This recipe is so versatile because you can change the ingredients and really personalize it. Some ideas for changing the recipe include:
- Replace the sage Jimmy Dean® Sausage Roll with the hot version for added spice
- Leave out the crumbled bacon
- Change the shredded cheese from Italian blend to shredded Pepper Jack cheese
Whatever combination you choose, these stuffed sweet peppers are guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser each and every time you serve them.
One other thing about this stuffed sweet peppers recipe that makes it so party perfect is the ability to do a lot of the prep in advance. You can cook the sausage and mix with the cheese in advance. Then, just stuff the mini sweet peppers when you are ready to bake.
Of course, you can also pre-cut the peppers in advance to make assembling the peppers super fast, too.
