TEXAS ARMADILLO EGGS

This is a recipe my late cousin gave to me many years ago.

2 to 3 cans of crab meat
2 cans jalapeno peppers (approximately 17) peppers
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped mushrooms
1 tbsp garlic (comes in a jar)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
3 eggs
1/4 cup milk
crushed saltine crackers to make cracker meal
Vegetable oil for frying

Saute onion, mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper in butter or margarine. Add the drained crab meat and mix together well.

Slice jalapenos lengthwise and remove seeds (important to remove seeds as they are hot). Wear gloves to remove seeds. Slice down one side only.

Generously stuff the peppers with the crab meat mixture.

Combine the eggs and milk, whisk to combine. Dip the stuffed peppers in the mixture. Roll in the cracker meal. Dip in the egg mixture a second time and roll in cracker meal again.

Drop into preheated oil and deep fry 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove and drain on paper towels.
