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.

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

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

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.
