This is a great recipe to make for a gathering of any kind. I usually end up making several batches because they don't last long with a group of hungry snackers. These photos are from the internet so you can see the end product.

How To Make

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325°F.
  • 2
    Trim off the stems of each pepper. Cut a slit down one side of each pepper. Remove the seeds and as much of the white membrane as possible. Set aside.
  • 3
    In a medium bowl, combine the sausage, Bisquick and garlic salt. Mix well (by hand is easiest).
  • 4
    Gently insert one or two cubes of the cheese into each jalapeno.
  • 5
    Pinch off a portion of the sausage mixture and shape it around each jalapeno, covering it completely but don't make too thick. Make into egg shape.
  • 6
    Roll each "egg" in bread crumbs to coat.
  • 7
    Arrange the "eggs" evenly on a prepared (sprayed with cookng spray)cookie sheet. Spray "eggs" lightly with cooking spray and bake for 25 minutes until lightly browned.
