Amadillo Eggs
 
I have only been a member for about a month and a half and have seen quite a few posts and pictures of Armadllo Eggs. I would love to try and make these babies. Would anyone be willing to share a simple recipe or instructions on how to make them? I'd appreciate it. They look delicious!

Thanks,
Mike

First, find a pregnant Armadillo.

Pick for favorite sausage fatty... ( we have a local sausage made in our price chopper that I love, but jimmy dean works!) THEN you find the prego Armadillo...

This is mine (and it's very simple.)

Ingredients:

Fresh Jalapenos (as many as you need - 1 per "egg")
8 oz. Cream Cheese (this will be enough for at least 2 dozen "eggs")
Yellow food coloring
Your favorite uncooked sausage (I recently used bratwurst)
A bit of your favorite rub

Cut off the end of the jalapenos and seed and devien them. Set aside.

Place the cream cheese in a bowl and soften, then mix 1 cap full of the yellow food coloring and blend with the cream cheese until all of it has a consistent yellow color.

Pipe the now yellow cream cheese into the jalapenos until they are full.

Make some 1/4" to 1/2" thick sausage patties and wrap them around the jalapeno (pinch the edges and ends together to seal.) Now shape them into an "egg".

Throw 'em on the smoker for 1 1/2 hours at 210-220 and TA-DA! Armadillo eggs!

Slice them like a hard-boiled egg (about 1/2"-1" thick) so your guests can see the "shell" (the sausage), the "egg" (the jalapeno) and the "yolk" (the yellow cream cheese.)
I found the recipe in "Smoke and Spice."

Enjoy!

But not a pregnant Giant Armadillo. Those will drink all your Lone Star Beer.

MrsMista 03-08-2006 11:31 PM

Armadillo eggs combine two of my favorite things, meat and cheese.

I know about thwe Armadillo! i know about the Armadillo!

CarbonToe 03-09-2006 02:32 AM

If Armadillo's lay eggs would they get pregnant? :cool:

Kevin 03-09-2006 04:36 AM

I use shredded pepper jack cheese for the filling. Just a personal preference.

jgh1204 03-09-2006 08:06 AM

Carbon, dont hijack my hijack with facts please!

bbqpigskin 03-09-2006 09:11 AM

OK..I'm in California, so an Armadillo, much less a pregnant Armadillo will be pretty farkin hard to find! There are a couple of fat odd looking dogs with excema down the road that might work...I don't know!

Seriously, thanks for the recipies. I'll try em out.

BBQchef - can we add this thread to the roadmap? I was looking for info on Armadillo Eggs m'self, and had to search to find this thread. Just a thought.

Capn

A quick way to get something added to roadmap is:

Find the thread you want to add
Copy the URL of the first page of that thread
From the main forum page, look for a name of "Who's Online" that is listed in Green (Solidkick, TommyKendall, Parrothead, BRDbbq, etc)

Send one of them a Private Message with the URL pasted in it, with the request to add in Roadmap under "subject"

BBQChef will add it, but his moderators can also help out, sometimes a bit faster since Phil is a bit busy lately

Edit. See Kapn was already on it.

This note is just for general info for all

Made some armadillo eggs today a little differently. Jimmy Dean sausage has gotten kind of expensive lately so I used ground pork. Pressed it out flat and seasoned with Tony C's. Rolled it up around pepper jack stuffed japs. Good eats. Made a fatty similar. Pressed 2# of ground pork out, seasoned with a sweet rub and stuffed with bell peppers,pepperoncini,green olives,garlic and onion. The ground pork doesn't want to hold its shape very well so I rolled everything up in wax paper and refrigerated overnight. That worked real well. This was a fun experiment. Gonna do some more with different seasonings. Maybe adobo or Old Bay. It never gets boring if you like to try new things.

Kevin

You egg is staring at you

Looks good

qman 04-23-2006 12:38 PM

Looks good Kevin. That is a good idea to just use ground pork and season it yourself. Gives you more control that way too.

MrsMista 04-23-2006 05:56 PM

Ground pork gives me ideas. Mista did a good one yesterday. Regular fattie with spinach, onion, garlic and monterey/cheddar mix.

He knew better then to deny my twice in row.

The turkey breast was great. Good flavor, moist, semi-crispy skin. Just all around good eats.

When i made my eggs, i took the roll, cut in half and stuffed with cheeze. Obviously my seal wasnt real good, because as it cooked it opened up where I made the seal. That I should be able to fix.

here is my other problem. I took some jalepenos, and stuffed with cheddar and put in the middle of the fatty. I smoked it for a few hours until they were done. When I sliced them, the meat was done, the cheese was melted, but the jalepeno wasnt cooked at all. It was like biting into a piece of celery. I am used to the pepper being softer like when i make ABT's. any suggestions?

I've never had the crunchy jap as you described, but I don't use whole sausage logs either. The way I make them the sausage layer is about 3/8 inch thick, each jap wrapped individualy. The original armadillo eggs as I first learned from the book "Peace Love and Barbecue" use bratwurst sausages with the casing removed. I just like to mess around with different flavors.

Credit where credit is due: Brother Midnight first brought recipe to my attention.
