Armadillo Eggs

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD: about 3 dozen.
The crust is crispy, and the peppers give this armadillo eggs recipe a nice zesty flavor. —Peggy Campbell, Welch, Texas


  • 3 cans (12 ounces each) pickled jalapeno peppers
  • 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1-1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 envelopes pork-flavored seasoned coating mix


  • 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.
  • 2. Dip into eggs, then roll in coating mix. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
