    I wanted to do fatty’s this weekend, so tonight I decided to make a new creation - Tiny Fatty Appetizers - to go with our pork loin steaks.  I made the tiny-fatty appetizers with lil’ Smokies and cheese, mushrooms and cheese, and lil’ Smokies - diced jalapenos and cheese.  This took a good 30 minutes to prepare these for the smoker.  I smoked everything at 250F for about 50 minutes using A-maz-n Pitmaster Blend for smoke.  I pulled everything out when the pork loin steaks hit 145F.

    These were so crazy good!  Each one was about 3 bites in size and each tiny fatty ranged in calories from about 190 to 220, each.  

    My fave was the jalapeno/cheese/lil' smoky.  My wife loved the mushroom/cheese and the lil' smoky/cheese tiny fatties.  

    Bottom line, all 3 were great.  These are going to be made for tailgate's and Super Bowl parties - for sure.

    Pictures below:

    I decided to use a flat-edged spatula to separate the sausage.  A knife did not work well.

    FWIW - we love this salmon seasoning on our pork-loins steaks.

    The finished product!

    shoebe and disco like this.

    I like the concept... did you put the sausage in a gallon bag to roll it out ??? rolled out sausage looks longer than what a bag would be... and then put the lil smokie on the cheese filling before rolling ??

    Yes. I did roll it out in a gallon bag - if you look at 3rd picture, you can see it.

    The mushroom/cheese one would have been easier if I blended it all together and made it like a long mushroom, cheese, sausage meat ball, but I managed.

    They look excellent!

    Great idea!

  7. Brilliant concept. Could almost pre make a fifty of these for the upcoming grey cup (Canadian football) weekend. But I'd probably eat them as they came out of the smoker. Great job!

    I thought it might be easier to roll 9 tiny fatties instead of 12 with a pound of sausage.  It was indeed easier; however, the tiny fatties got much larger than appetizer size because I used more jalapenos and cheese with just 1 lil smokie sausage - just because it seemed to need more jalapenos and cheese.  

    End result...I would stick with 12 tiny fatties per pound of sausage.  BTW - this "mistake" was still delicious.
