Southfork Ranch's Armadillo Eggs

No, armadillos don’t lay eggs. Still, this makes a great name for a Texas favorite. This spicy side dish was contributed by the Southfork Ranch, where exterior shots for the “Dallas” television series were filmed. You don’t get much more Texan than that.

2 pounds pork sausage
3/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
6 jalapeno peppers, halved and seeds removed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

Soften sausage in a 250-degree oven for 2 to 3 minutes (do not cook). Place cheese cubes into jalapeno pieces (1 cube to each 1/2-inch slice of pepper). Roll or pat out sausage into 4-inch circles, approximately 1/4-inch thick. Wrap sausage around pepper-and-cheese bundle and shape to look like an egg. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Bake in a 350-degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
