    I have seen a real craze of forming hamburger into cups and stuffing it. It looks delicious and I will try it. However, it occurred to me that If you did it on a smaller scale with breakfast sausage it would make a great appetizer.

    I made 1 inch balls of my Passing Wind Estates Breakfast Sausage. I formed it into a cup around my finger.


    I put a slice of jalapeno pepper in each cup.


    I covered that with a plug of cream cheese.


    I put another slice of jalapeno on top.


    A 1 inch piece of bacon topped them off.


    I put them in the Bradley at 270 F for about 40 minutes with hickory smoke.


    The final product.


    The Verdict

    These were great! The only thing I would do differently next time is to cook them on the WSM mini. They would be better with a shorter, hotter cook. The possibilities for these is endless. You could change up the fillings, use ground chicken or beef instead of sausage. I think my next effort will use chorizo sausage.

    Looks great Disco! I've done them stuffed and wrapped in bacon but not cups.

    Thanks. I hope you post your version.
    Considering the great sausage I've seen in your posts, I suspect it will be terrific.
    Remember to post if you do try it.
