Texas Woodpecker Eggs

READY IN: 1hr 45mins




  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Lightly spray a large baking pan with cooking spray.
  • Mix together the sausage (raw) and grated pepper Jack cheese.
  • Add biscuit mix in, 1/2 cup at a time, until all is thoroughly mixed.
  • This will make a very stiff dough, and should now be kneaded for about 3 minutes.
  • Pinch off pieces of the dough, almost the size of the eggs, and flatten out the piece into a "pancake", about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Place one boiled, peeled egg in the center of each "pancake" and roll the dough around each egg to cover it all the way around evenly.
  • Seal any edges together with your fingers.
  • Continue this until all of the eggs are covered in the dough.
  • Place the box of Shake' N Bake into a large shallow dish.
  • Crack the 3 additional raw eggs into a bowl; season with a pinch of salt and black pepper and beat.
  • Roll each egg in the Shake' N Bake, then in the egg wash, and back again through the Shake 'N Bake.
  • Lay each egg on the prepared baking sheet as it is done.
  • Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes.
  • The "Woodpecker Eggs" will seem soft to the touch when they first come out of the oven, but as they cool, they will "crust" nicely.
