Armadillo Eggs

Armadillo Eggs

This is a popular appetizer in Texas, where everything is BIG! These are no exceptions so don’t be surprised by how large the final product is.

Recipe Ingredients


* Use the largest jalapenos you can find.




  1. Split the jalapenos in half lengthwise and de-seed.
  2. Mix together the stuffing ingredients and pack the jalapenos. Put the jalapenos back together.
  3. Mix the Bisquick, sausage and Cheddar cheese. Form this mixture around a jalapeno, using enough to cover completely.
  4. Beat the eggs.
  5. Dip the covered jalapenos in the egg and then roll in the Shake & Bake.
  6. Place jalapenos on a baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes.

You can also grill these, turning a couple times.
