Armadillo Eggs!

edited 2:53AM in EggHead Forum
These were a bigger hit than I expected at EggFest '04
But so many folks wanted the recipe . . . Here Goes. . . [p]
Armadillo Eggs in the Egg[p]Set up your Egg for indirect cooking- I used an inverted plate setter and one of those notdicware cooking grids with the holes in it. . . .anyway
Get the Egg to about 350-400 degrees[p]Heres what you need:
A bunch of good cavernous Jalapenos
1 lb Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage (the kind from a tube)
2 Cups Bisquick
2 Cups shredded Pepper Jack
1 Cup Mozzerella
1 Package Shake'n'bake for Pork
1 egg (for breading)[p]MNix the bisquick, 2 cups of jack cheeze, and sausage. Knead it by hand till you have a form of mouldable dough.
Prep the peppers bu cutting a slit down one side and use a melon-baller or small spoon to scrape out the seeds and ribs (unless you like that kind of thing). Stuff with mozzarella cheeze- but not too tightly or they will burst when cooked.
Take a dolop of the dough and wrap the pepper with it.
Take an egg (or 2 depending how many your making) and give it a good beating. Dip or roll the dough-covered pepper in the egg, then cover in the shake-n-bake.
Arrange on the cooking grid so that they are not touching and put into the egg for about 20 minutes.[p]Variations- Chedder also works well also- I usually make a mix of cheeze, use 2 cups for the dough and use the rest for stuffing. You may also try plain or sage sausage (or make your own!) Also try it with smaller Poblano peppers (my favorite)- yummy![p]enjoy!
The cornbread will take a bit longer to write out- stay tuned. . . . . . . . .

    WailingAngusBeef,[p]Dude, you're a natural on that thing. You really cooked some awesome grub. It was great meeting you and your boss! Also, please post the GREAT cornbread recipe![p]Hope you made it home safely, without rain (and the egg intact)![p]Smokey

    <p />WailingAngusBeef,[p]Your Armadillo Eggs were muy bueno.... the crispiness of the coating was especially nice and they turned out to be one of my favorites of the day..... I'm thinking a creamy chipotle sauce of some kind would work well for dipping those thangs.[p]Fun cooking next to you!

    WailingAngusBeef,[p]Great Stuff! We've got some great pics of the process we'll be posting later. Please post the Jalapeno Corn Bread recipe too![p]Between your cornbread, amadillo eggs and my ABT's we had Jalapenos going all day. I'm sure some folks felt em the day after though.[p]It was fun cooking next to you.[p]Cheers,[p]Mr. & Mrs. GrillMeister

    WailingAngusBeef,[p]Those were some excellent little snacks...thanks for posting the recipe. BTW, did that egg ride on a bike on the way back home?[p]Tonia

  • QBabe,
    Nope, not on the motorcycle, but it was packed tight in back of the jeep. Big Green Egg. . .Big Green Jeep. . . .Armadillo Eggs. . . theres a theme in there somewhere. . .
    And lucky for us, we didn't hit any rain on the way back! Yeay![p]

  • WailingAngusBeef, It was awsome talking with you at the feat, thanks for being so gentle on my egg when you were cooking. The food was great. I got the egg home built my table and got my neigbors to help me get the egg up on to my second story deck. I made Shish Kaboob as my test meal it was awsome.[p]Jim
  • Screamin' Eagle,[p]Tell us more about those Kaboobs. We just don't seem to see enough of those, these days![p]Pete
