If you missed Susie from HeyGrillHey on our show, she talked about the best appetizer to bring to a tailgate. It’s called bacon wrapped armadillo eggs!
Here’s what Susie has to say:
Bacon Wrapped Armadillo Eggs are like a jalapeno popper meatball mashup. Filling enough to be a main dish, but portable enough to make as appetizers, snacks, or tailgating munchies.
BACON WRAPPED ARMADILLO EGGS
Armadillo eggs are a classic Texas BBQ staple. Filled jalapenos are wrapped in pork sausage and smoked low over oak. Each pitmaster has their own secrets, of course. The jalapeno filling may have a special blend of cheeses, the sausage may be seasoned with a secret blend of spices, and they may or may not be brushed with BBQ sauce during the smoking process. I had to take my own liberties with the recipe, of course, and added a little more pork to the party by making mine bacon wrapped armadillo eggs.
