But... but... I thought God created Armadillos so Texans could have Possum on the half shell!

"Contrary to popular theory, it is not a highly contagious disease, and about 95 percent of the human population is naturally immune."
Where did they get that from? Certainly not from the CDC, which lists leprosy as a nationally notifiable disease, subject to quarantine due to its public health threat.

Armadillo, the meal that jumped.
If you don’t understand this, ask. The explanation is a little funny (but not to the armadillo.)
1 1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed (optional)
1/4 cup butter
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon rosemary
1 medium onion, sliced thin
1 armadillo, cleaned and cut into serving pieces
1 1/4 cup light cream
1 tablespoon brown mustard (e.g. Gulden’s) or Poupon Dijon
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Turn this recipe into a puzzle! [click]
Mix all ingredients of marinade and add armadillo. Marinate about 8 hrs., turning meat occasionally. Remove armadillo and reserve marinade. Melt butter in deep skillet and brown armadillo pieces. Pour in marinade and bring to a boil. Stir in seasoning, cover and simmer until tender (about 1 - 1 1/4 hours.) Remove skillet from the fire and place armadillo pieces on a warmed platter.
Mix mustard and cornstarch, then mix in cream. Return skillet to low heat and stir in this mixture a little at a time. Stir sauce until hot, but not boiling, and thickened. Pour sauce over armadillo. Serve with steamed rice.
CDKitchen note: this was posted to rec.food.recipes - we can’t quite imagine eating armadillo - but hey, who are we to judge!

I just had an armadillo and provolone sandwich for lunch.

I get interested in this stuff here in Texas, as that may be the only option for eating meat, for while, after the dollar crashes.

*THIS* is news in the UK? It's something *I* personally have known for about three decades now, when I was first stationed at Ft Hood, TX in 1981. We were constantly warned about the linkage between the local wildlife (armadillos) and leprosy...

I have known that armadillos are carriers of leprosy for most of my life. I wonder what percentage of the animals are carriers and do they die of it as well?

Dang, and they were keeping the roads so ‘dillo free, but then I always thought you were supposed to throw the roadkill INTO the burn barrel, not on top with spices.

Armadillo is the most gristly meat I’ve ever eaten.

This information came out decades ago. I know because it scared the hell out of me and made a big enough impression that I quit eating Armadillo chili.
