Great appetizer that incorporates a whole pepper surrounded by a cheesy sausage dough that baked and browned in the oven.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut a slit lengthwise on one side of peppers, leaving other side intact; remove seeds. Stuff each pepper with about 2 teaspoons sharp cheddar cheese. Pinch edges to close; set aside.
  2. Combine remaining 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese, sausage, and baking mix.
  3. Pinch off about 2 rounded tablespoons of dough; shape into a 1/4" thick patty. Place a pepper in center of patty, and wrap dough around pepper. Dip in egg; dredge in seasoned coating mix. Place on a lightly greased 15 x 10" jelly roll pan. Repeat with remaining dough and peppers; cover and chill up to 2 hours, if desired.
  4. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden.
