Armadillo Eggs
A delicious appetizer! They’ll keep coming back for more so make plenty.
Serves: 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20-25 minutes


1/2 pound shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 pound shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 pound cream cheese
1/2 pound sweet or hot Italian pork sausage, ground and crumbled
20 fresh jalapeno peppers (fresh, bottled or canned)
1 1/2 cups Bisquick
2 eggs, beaten
1 box pork flavored Shake N Bake*

Mix cheese and sausage ingredients. Split peppers down one side, de-seed, then stuff with the cheese mixture. Close pepper back. Make a dough out of the bisquick following the directions for biscuits on package and pat around peppers. Make sure all peppers are free of seeds. Roll in Shake and Bake. Dip in eggs and roll again in Shake and Bake. At this point, these may be frozen. If not, bake at 325F for 20 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.
