My best bud from back in high school is bringing his family down for a visit tomorrow. We have been cooking out and grillin at partys forever, but not since I got my egg. We have talked about how awesome I think the egg is and how great my cooks have turned out.
I am doing pork butts for pulled pork (I gave him open cnoice on what he would like me to cook for him). Plan on being done with butts ready to wrap about 8 or 9am and lunch at 12noon.
Looking for a cool app to impress him and the fam. Any ideas?

I have done jalapeno poppers, stuffed mushrooms, and fattys.

Can't wait for ideas and recipes ...

    ABT's are I guess the obvious choice, very similar to poppers. I also love wings slow cooked on the egg, but there are a ton of recipe's / methods. Another favorit is dates stuffed with Manchego or cream cheese and wrapped in bacon or pancetta, also slow cooked. Or if your pork will be off the egg, how about some mini pizzas? Pizza will really show the versatality of the egg. What ever you decide, I know your friends will enjoy!
  • I was thinking about the ABTs, I have done those b4...wings may work, any advice for those?

    ABT's or maybe mini pizzas. Put out some different toppings and let everyone make a small personal pizza. Could do maybe 3 little ones at a time and quick turn around and everyone gets to make what they think is the best. I bought some marinated chicken wings at the local Mexican market and waiting for an excuse to cook them..too many ideas not enough time...

    Julie's grape tomatoes, garlic and feta skillet with baguettes was over the top at the Sunshine State Eggfest last April. It's amazing!!!!!

    Pretty much anything wrapped in bacon! :woohoo:

    ABTs, bacon wrapped shrimp or scallops, maybe some bacon wrapped tater tots for the kids.

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yes, I second the tomato dip, it is devine. As are moink balls, those are always a hit.
  • Lobster tails!! or Scallops in bacon..
