Cooking W/ Brandy - Armadillo Eggs

Here is another yummy appetizer to wow your man at his Super Bowl Party.  We have made this recipe twice and it's really yummy.  We grilled it and turned out to be a favorite. My husband bought me Miss Kay's Duck Commander Kitchen Cookbook for Christmas and this is one of her recipes.

What you need...

  1. 6-8 large jalapeño peppers, cut in half lengthwise, seeds and ribs removed
  2. 1 package cream cheese, softened
  3. 2 lbs breakfast sausage formed into 12-16 patties
  4. 1 lb bacon sliced thin
  5. 1 stick butter, melted

What you do...

  1. If using the grill heat to medium.  If not, heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Fill each jalapeño half with cream cheese.  Mold sausage around each jalapeño making sure to cover the entire jalapeño.  Wrap each "armadillo egg" with a slice of bacon.
  3. Cook on open grill until sausage is cooked through and bacon is crispy.  Or, bake in oven for 15-20 minutes and broil until bacon is crispy.
  4. Remove the eggs from grill or oven and cover with melted butter
