Armadillo Eggs

You may have heard about Scotch Eggs. If you haven’t, don’t worry. I’ll post a recipe. I found this recipe in an old Tex-Mex cookbook.

  • 10 large Jalapenos
  • 12 ozs shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 pound ground Pork Sausage, mild or hot
  • 1 package (10 pieces) refrigerated Biscuits

Preheat oven to 375F.

Stem and de-seed jalapenos. Rinse and dry.  Stuff the hollow peppers with cheese. Slice the sausage into 10 even slices. Flatten thin enough to completely wrap around the jalapenos. Be sure to close off top so the cheese will not melt out. Place in a baking dish and bake until sausage is brown. At least 10 minutes or longer. Remove from oven and drain on paper towels.

Separate 10 biscuit pieces and wrap around each “egg”. Seal the edges. Bake in oven until biscuit dough is brown. About 9 to 11 minutes. Excellent for those pepper-head friends!
