Slice the bacon in half and put a piece of sausage on the bottom. Top with about 1 tablespoon of cream cheese and add a jalapeno on top of that. Add another tablespoon of cream cheese on top of jalapeno. Roll the jalapeno on top of the jalapeno. Tightly roll upward. Repeat with all slices of bacon. Bake in the oven until bacon is crispy. Glaze the poppers with sorghum while still warm (you can also use maple or cane syrup!
