I found these little Avocados that are about the size of an egg and just had to buy them. So…what to do besides guacamole? I know, I will put an egg yolk inside them and encase them in sausage and wrap them in Bacon. I dub thee “Martian Eggs”!
This should be interesting. I started by cutting the avocados open and removing the pit. Then I gently scooped the meat out of the skin. I placed them into some cold water with some lime juice mixed in it for a minute or so to prevent browning. I then placed them onto a paper towel to dry a bit.
I flipped them over to start the filling.
I carefully separated the egg yolks and placed them into their new home. Hopefully they close nicely.
Time to give each avocado a little pig coating. I used about 4 oz of sausage per avocado.
Got them all stuffed and wrapped!
Wrapped each one in a slice of peppered bacon and then it was onto the Weber for some apple smoke at about 240° until the bacon is just done. I am really hoping for a nice runny yolk.
Bacon looks perfect!
The moment of truth…not what I was hoping for exactly but they were super good. Definitely rich and meaty. I had someone suggest that I freeze the yolks next time before stuffing. I will have to give that a shot. I will use chorizo for the next ones to give them a little kick as well. I would also like a little acidic glaze on there to cut through some of the richness. All in all it was a success! Well, thanks for looking at my crazy nonsense again.
