Armadillo Eggs

HUGE HIT!!! I have made these with reduced fat biscuit mix, fat free cheese and turkey sausage. Can't even tell they are lower in fat. One suggestion, I had better luck stuffing them with chunks of cheese instead of the shredded cheese. I also made a double batch and froze half. DELICIOUS!!

36
3 cans (12 ounces each) pickled jalapeno peppers
4 cups (16 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 pound bulk pork sausage
1 1/2 cups biscuit/baking mix
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 envelopes pork-flavored season coating mix
Cut each jalapeno in half lengthwise; remove seeds and stems. Stuff each pepper half with about 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese. In a bowl, combine the uncooked sausage, biscuit mix and remaining cheese; mix well. Shape about 2 tablespoonfuls around each pepper. Dip into eggs, then roll in coating mix. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 3 dozen. ***Special Note: You should wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your eyes or face.

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups

479

Back-to-school season is one of the busiest times of year in my home. These Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups are the perfect grab-and-go meal for busy school mornings. Cereal used to be my go-to for breakfast convenience. Unfortunately, those carbs get burned up by my kids’ young metabolisms well before lunch arrives. So, I had to find a way to pack some protein into their morning meal to help stave off hunger longer. I can make these Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole Cups on the weekend and freeze them so the kids can reheat them for breakfast during the week.
