Armadillo Eggs!!!

15 posts in this topic

Just made a batch of these and figured i'd share...

Cheese stuffed jalopenos encased in sausage...

Take your peppers and cut the tops off, cut em in half then seed and vein them. You'll need to match the halfs back up. Your going to fill each one with cheese of your choice, I usually use cheddar...

Now for the sausage. You can use sweet italian, breakfast, hot, basically any kind of bulk. For about 8 peppers I used 1/2 pound to which I added a heavy half cup of bisquick, and a heavy half cup of shredded cheese. I used a 4 cheese blend. Also I added one clove of garlic minced. Work this together till you get a sticky dough. Then spread a spoonfull out thin...

Now your going to encase the pepper. This takes a little getting the hang of but it's not too bad. The sausage dough is prety tough and workable...

Make sure to get some extra sausage in the chesse end to hold it in...

Next dip them into a beatn egg and roll in seasoned shake n bake..

Then into a bakeing dish and a 325-350 degree over for about 35 minutes. Flip em once...

They are a bit time consumeing but worth it. And not nearly as hot as you would think. My dad likes em alot and he dosn't do hot. Each batch is a tad diff and you could leave some seeds and veins. Two people enjoying a beverage make these quicker than one grumpy person grin

Give them time to cool. Dont be the one with melted cheese burns all over the inside of your mouth cool

Yes I have used venison sausage and it works just fine. When I make my veni pan sausage though I add pork butt 50/50. Lean venison by itself just dosn't make good sausage. Mixed with pork it's still much leaner and healthier than regular stuff..

I have a large amount of ground venison. I too mix with pork, and am going to try this recipe this weekend.

Thanks for the recipe, and the pics with it. Awesome!!

No bacon = FAIL.

J/K. Looks great! Seen them before but never made them. Now if you could only modify this to make a Scotch Egg/ Armadillo Egg hybrid with smoked eggs...

woah.

I've been delegated as the cook for dinner this evening, I may need to make this tonight.

I'm thinking of trying it with some chorizo.

Last time, I use cheddar bacon cheese curds in them. They were outstanding!

    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
