Armadillo Eggs

The Armadillo eggs were gone before I could take a picture because-I was busy....eating.
There are several recipes floating around here locally but I like the way that a local meat market makes theirs. If you would like to try some here are some general instructions:
1 1/1-2 lbs. pan sausage, any kind you like
4 fresh jalapenos halved and seeded
3-4 oz. cream cheese
8 bacon slices

stuff each jalapeno half with the cream cheese. Divide the sausage into 8 balls. Wrap each ball around a stuffed jalapeno half until it is completely covered. Wrap the bacon slice around the sausage ball and secure with a toothpick. Grill or bake the "eggs" for about 30 minutes.350 degrees.

**You can also wrap a thin piece of chicken breast around the jalapeno instead of sausage if you wish. These are really good**

well this sounds very different. I'm not much of an egg eater other than scrambled, but I know this is right up baldymans alley!

Thank you so much for your prayers! And yes, Rachel is amazing...and I'm her mom...so I know that that prejudices me...but that's okay! We LOVE armadillo eggs around here. It has become such a tradition that we make them for every holiday too. We add a little cheddar cheese on top of the cream cheese before we wrap the bacon around it all. We may have to try adding the sauasage! Yummy!
