Dairy-Free “Armadillo” Eggs


1 8-oz. package of Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese

12 jalapeno peppers, halved and de-seeded

2 lbs. of ground sausage

2 lbs. of bacon

First, wearing gloves, half and clean the seeds out of your peppers. Leave the stems on. Then fill each pepper half with cream cheese. Round up a ball of sausage and flatten like a hamburger except thinner. Roll  the “hamburger” around your pepper stuffed with cream cheese. Then wrap bacon around sausage. I usually use one and a half pieces of bacon to cover it good. Then set the “eggs” on a grill type rack set on a cookie sheet with sides. Here’s a picture of our “eggs” going into the oven…DSCN0125

I start the baking at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn oven to 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. When tops are brown, turn over. I check the pan constantly to see if I need to drain grease because you will have some. That’s why I set them on a rack. Here’s what they look like when they are fully cooked.DSCN0126
