Turtle Eggs

edited December 2013 in Appetizers
Pretty standard cook; cream cheese and cheddar with a couple of diced fresh jalapenos stuffed into breakfast sausage balls then smoked with Tabasco barrel chips at 250° indirect. The only thing is I took them off too early initially (after about an hour) so I put them back on for about 30 minutes to insure they're cooked through.

    Haven't heard of Tabasco barrel chips.  What are those?

  • Tobasco buys use barrels from Jack Daniels. Jack uses them twice. Tobasco uses them for ten batches. Then they chip them. So essentially they are oak saturated with Jack and then Tobasco. They are glorious!

    I did turtle eggs and they sucked big time! I'm going to try it without the sage sausage next time and hope they are better.
    Those look good though.

    Try 'em again and use either plain breakfast sausage or spicy if you like it hot. I can't imagine the sage sausage would be very good.

  • We like the sage sausage for these too but like Griff said, it's a matter of preference.  Use whatever breakfast sausage you like.

    So exactly how do you make these?

    Cube up some cheese. 
    add some diced pepper
    wrap raw ground sausage around it to make a "meatball"
    Cook until done

    If that's it, I gotta try it.


    Wow, I just had a brain fart.  How about a ham sausage stuffed meatball.
    Instead of breakfast sausage, I could cure my own ham, then run it through a meat grinder for making ground raw ham meat.  Then hot smoke at 300F

    I would be courious if or what kind of flavor you achieved with those type of wood chips. Was it a peppery smoke or did it really just turn to be a oak flavor or both? It sounds really good though.

    It dose have a bit of a different flavor than simple oak chips, but I'm nt sure it's a spicy flavor. The one thing I can say definitively is that the smoke will choke you out in a heartbeat when you add the chips, so I'm convinced that some of that flavor is transfered.

    That is pretty much it except I shred the cheese vs cube it to help it mix in with the creamcheese and pepper better. I've done turtle eggs before that didn't come out right (leaked) so this time I used twice the amount of sausage (meaning two of the marks on the package per egg) and it seems to work well. They are a bit more than a small appetizer though when you do it that way, but I'd rather they be god than small.

    what about trying less cheese filling and still using one mark on per egg.  I am a new egg owner so this is just a thought I havent even tried to fix these but I will be doing it soon
