4 ounces (1 cup) pepper jack cheese, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups seasoned dry breadcrumbs
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375° F. Divide and roll uncooked sausage into 1-ounce meatballs. Press thumb into each ball, creating a small bowl shape. Use a knife to remove stems from jalapeno peppers. Slice in quarters lengthwise; remove seeds. Wrap one jalapeno strip around a cube of cheese; press into meatball. Work sausage back into a meatball shape, enclosing cheese and jalapeno. Repeat with remaining meatballs. In a small bowl, combine eggs, milk and salt; stir well. Measure breadcrumbs into a separate bowl. Dip each meatball in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs to completely coat. Bake on a large non-stick baking sheet 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on pan 5 minutes before serving. Discard any remaining egg and breadcrumbs.
