Here is a recipe, such as it is, I got from the Big Green Egg forum.

Armadillo Eggs

Jalapeno peppers, quantities vary

Cheese, Chedder recommended but try different types

loose sausage, Italian was the type recommended but buffalo, beef or turkey would do

Hollow out the peppers, stuff with cheese, wrap in loose sausage till it is egg shaped, cook in the grill at about 350F till the sausage is done.

I'm going to be at an Eggfest  weekend after this one and I'll see what I can copy and modify.

Armadillos squashed along the road are becoming nearly as common as squashed possums....at least around here.

In the states, the nine banded armadillo (the species you find in the US) is a non native species and most areas would be happy to purged of them.

Certainly if you have a garden you want to keep them out.

There are some regulations that very by location about what you can do with them
(Live traps, shooting, ...). But most places in the US you are free to try to get rid of them.

Armadillo's are a pest, here. The holes they dig are dangerous for cattle and horses. They are on every Arky's most wanted poster. I've never seen their eggs, really didn't think about it. Have any photos. If I ever find some it would be a joy to know that they are good for something.

Umm? Did anybody read the original post? Armadillos don't actually lay eggs.

Yeah, this recipe is for an egg-shaped pepper/sausage/cheese dish.

Armadillos are mammals. Their eggs are microscopic and they give birth to live young. It would make more sense to have a dish featuring armadillo cheese (cheese made from armadillo milk) than armadillo eggs- not that I really think anybody would want to milk an armadillo! You'd probably get only an ounce or two for the entire day- these creatures are tiny!

I could have posted a link to the eggheadforum, the Big Green Egg grills forum with pictures at the time of the original post. I wanted to avoid all the side issues about cooking at high heat, grilling, smoking yada yada. Since then I'd have to do a search on that forum to locate it as they only keep 3 days posts listed. I'd suppose that it was invented in Texas or the deep south where numerous jokes(and armadillos) exists. "what do you call armadillo? Possum on the halfshell"

  Hey.  Guilty as charged.  Silly Ribbit.   Pangolins and echindas and platypuses lay eggs.  How would I know armadillos don't?
