These are the perfect party starter! Game day, family time, it don't matter. These are a guaranteed win!
1 package shredded cheddar (or cheese of your choice)
1 8oz block of cream cheese
1/4 cup diced jalapenos (can sub for canned chilis, pickled peppers etc)
BBQ rub of your choice
1 package of bacon (don't use thick cut)
To make them:
1: Cut your Polish Kielbasa into 1/2 inch rings. Try to keep the cuts as uniform as possible as this is the base for your pig shots. Wrap your sausage discs with a half slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
2: Mix 1 package cream cheese with 1 package shredded cheddar (feel free to use whatever cheeses you want and like). Add in 1/4 cup diced jalapeños (any pepper of your choice works) and season with BBQ rub of your choice.
Pipe mixture onto top of sausage/bacon cups and do not overfill as the mixture rises as it cooks. (if you don't have a pipe bag, place contents into a ziploc, push towards the corner and cut off the tip))
3: Place on smoker (or in oven) at 325-350 degrees for 35-45 mins. Check after 25 mins or so. They are done when the bacon is cooked and the cheese is melted!
