I look forward to Super Bowl Sunday every year. No, Not because I am avid football fan but because I LOVE making hors d'oeuvres . Some people love to bake. Some like to smoke or cook. My love is appetizers. I could probably fill an entire cook book on the hors d'oeuvres I enjoy making, but today I will start with the family favorite, Armadillo Eggs.
Large Group of friends
15 large jalapenos
1 stick of Blue & Gold Sausage
1 box of pork flavored Shake N' Bake
2 or more eggs
The night before my party I like to gut and cut the jalapenos, wash good, put in a large bowl filled with water and leave in the fridge over night. The next day I take the jalapenos out of the water and pack with shredded cheese. I then make a sausage ball batter and wrap the jalapenos individually.
I roll into a ball and then roll in an egg wash. From there I roll that in the pork flavored Shake N' Bake. Put on a cookie sheet. Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until they are golden brown and begin to break open.
I like to pair these with or with out a home made ranch dressing. This will quickly become a party favorite.
