Spicy, cheesy and porky. You really can’t go wrong with stuffed jalapeno peppers for Father’s Day.

They work perfectly as a precursor to a grilled entree or on a platter of other savory munchies while watching the game. Use whatever sausage you (or Dad) prefer. We like the zip of a hot sausage, but a sweet sausage works well, too. If you’re looking for even less heat, you can substitute baby bell peppers in place of the jalapenos.
