Servings: Over 8
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: 1-30 minutes


  • 6 to 8 large jalape??o peppers, cut in half lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 pounds breakfast sausage, formed into 12 to 16 patties
  • 1 pound bacon, sliced thin
  • 1 stick (?? pound) butter, melted

Cooking Directions

If you're using a grill, heat it to medium. If not, heat the oven to 400??F. Fill each jalape??o half with cream cheese. Mold sausage around each jalape??o half, making sure to cover the entire jalape??o. Wrap each "armadillo egg" with a slice of bacon.

Cook the eggs on an open grill until the sausage is cooked through and the bacon is crispy. If you don't have an outdoor grill, bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, then broil until the bacon is crispy.

Remove the eggs from the grill or oven and cover with melted butter.
