Atomic Buffalo Turds Recipe

Atomic buffalo turds are basically a little appetizer composed of a small piece of sausage and cream cheese stuffed into a jalapeno and wrapped in bacon. I mean what more can you want out of an appetizer.

I’ve seen several variations of this, uh, creatively named dish, but the one over at the Beer and Barbecue blog is one’s my favorite.
