Dasheen Covered Eggs

I have never tasted this, but as stated earlier, with the Tobago Blue Food Festival, which is a dasheen love feast festival to be held on October 16th 2016, in the lovely Caribbean Island of Tobago, Trinidad and Tobago. I will posting a lot of a lot of recipes using dasheen as the main ingredient.

2 lb dasheen

1 tsp black pepper

6 flavor peppers

9 hard boil eggs, not over cooked

3 sprigs chive

1/2 cup seasoned flour

6 cloves garlic

1 cup course bread crumbs

1 pk vegetable tastemaker

2 eggs – beaten (for wash)

4 tbsps. butter

salt to taste

oil for deep frying

Peel, cook and crush dasheen. Using a mini chopper, chop pepper, chive and garlic, saute in butter.  Mix dasheen, seasoning, pepper and salt to taste. Roll eggs in seasoned flour, shape a portion of the mixture around the egg, molding it firmly with your hands. Roll in egg wash, then bread crumbs. Set aside on a plate, cling and refrigerate for 20 minutes. Fry in hot oil covering 3/4 of the covered eggs, for 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Serve cool. Cut in half to reveal eggs.
