    While I was smoking some rib tips yesterday, I decided to do a variation on an armadillo egg I had been thinking about. I made some hardboiled eggs, and sliced them in quarters, I then pressed out some breakfast sausage, sprinkled some rub on it, and then rolled up the sausage with the egg in the midle into a ball about the size of a small baseball, I then wrapped these balls in sliced bacon, and then smoked for about 2 hours... The result... brilliant... lots of flavor, and the hardboiled eggs texture, and flavor really made them good.

    I took some pics and will post them when I get home from work today.

    thanks guys, Ill download the pics for sure.

    These were good right off the smoker, but I bet they would be good with a couple sunnyside up eggs for breakfast.

    Glad they turned out well for you.

    Aren't they good? Did a couple of them a while ago. They would make a great grab and go breakfast.

    Nice! Looks like a great breakfast . . . or better yet, a weekend mid-afternoon snack to be accompanied by an adult beverage or three. :) Thanks for the post!

    Best,
    Trout

    the texture of the hardboiled egg was the best part for me, how it differed from the crisp bacon, the meaty sausage, and then a firm soft egg. next time I think Ill put 1/2 of the hardboiled egg in the sausage ball.
