Is anyone going to step up to the Tofu or Eggplant challenge? Or is everyone going to wuss out and use peanuts?

In my opinion...neither of those are a good match to the other ingredients. The tofu is the most easily accessible, but since you also must use chicken, they the fark would anyone add tofu? It just screams, "I added tofu because I had to". Again, my opinion, which means little. As for Eggplant...chicken, tube dough, lime and eggplant has possibilities, and I had a dish planned out that could use these involving baba ghanouj, but it's a stretch because lemon would be the more natural complement, and using lime just screams, "I used lime because I had to", sort of like the tofu above. Again, my opinion only.

Honestly, the entries so far are pretty much as I originally expected. Of Thai or other Asian influence mostly, using peanut. The flavors naturally work together that way. Again, my opinion only, which is only worth what others perceive it to be.

I ain't no wuss! I am using eggplant and dough in a tube (not a box). I'm working on the dough in a tube as we speak and hoping no one else will do what I'm going to do. I don't think I can complete it until tomorrow though but I do know without a doubt that this dish will be sure to please! I'm going "from scratch" all the way...except for the tube dough. Oh, and it's not Thai or Asian.

I used eggplant, but I don't even know what tofu is. Is that something Taco Bell uses in their "beef"?

Great entry Jim. I didn't think of a pie. Looks like you made good use of your iron.

And that is the point of the whole Throw Down, I am glad it worked out for you Jim. I was a little concerned that you ate nuts when you said you can't.

The nuts will not kill me, and I do love nuts. I used just enough to give the flavor and texture I was hoping for.

Thanks for your concern.

Oh, I "Hit" often enough.
And I'm using dough in a tube, AND eggplant and peanuts. Heavily Indian influenced.

Default Chicken And Eggplant Fajitas In A Blanket

For my fourth ingredient I went with eggplant. I decided to make a chicken fajita sausage and add chopped eggplant to the mixture for moisture more than anything else. This idea I got from Ron L's eggplant parm burger, and it does work!


I chopped up 4 chicken thighs, added the juice from 2 key limes, chili powder, salt, black pepper, cumin, white pepper, poultry seasoning,cayenne, paprika, and garlic powder.


Chopped up an eggplant and added it to the chicken mixture.


I coarse ground and stuffed the mixture into natural casings.


I smoked the sausage on the uds, cooled, and wrapped the sausages in the canned dough.




The sausages were baked in the WSM.


Served up in a cast iron skillet filled with sizzling red and green peppers and sweet onions. Please use this as the entry, and thanks for looking!
