Armadillo Eggs Recipe

The crust is crispy, and the peppers give this dish a nice zesty flavor. —Peggy Campbell, Welch, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:36 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cans (12 ounces each) pickled jalapeno peppers
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided

  • 1-1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 envelopes pork-flavored seasoned coating mix

Directions

  • 1. Cut each jalapeno in half lengthwise; remove seeds and stems. Stuff each pepper half with about 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese. In a bowl, combine the uncooked sausage, biscuit mix and remaining cheese; mix well. Shape about 2 tablespoonfuls around each pepper.
