Armadillos are Cute and Taste Great

Armadillos are an amazing group of animals that originated in South America. Armadillos are mammals and their closest relatives are sloths and anteaters. Armadillos are built to dig. They have short, strong legs that are well suited to rapid digging, either for food or for shelter. Like their cousins, the sloth and anteater, armadillos have strong claws.

On top of all these amazing facts, Armadillos taste great. There are numerous recipes for Armadillo including Armadillo in Cream Sauce, Armadillo and Rice and of course my favorite

Armadillo Casserole:

Two lbs. armadillo meat
8 ounces of butter
Lemon juice
Dash onion salt
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Lemon pepper to taste

Season with salt, pepper, lemon pepper, lemon juice, and rub with butter. Wrap in foil and bake at 325 degrees F. for approximately 45 minutes. Remove foil, add more butter and brown. For barbecued armadillo, baste with barbecue sauce over grill after removing foil
