Football season is getting closer - starting to focus more on cooking.....

I want to make Pig Shots for an appetizer this weekend.   I saw the recipe for the filling a few months ago - but cannot find the post.

Have tried searching - found pics of them - but not enough to help with the filling options.

Can someone assist?

Thanks

  • Do a google search for "pig shots" as there are many, many different combinations for fillings. Cream cheese is about the only thing the same in all of them.
  • My method:
    Cut bacon strips in half. Cut up kielbasa wrap kielbasa with bacon, stab toothpick through it and stuff with brown sugar and cream cheese. I warm up the cream cheese in the microwave.. Then add brown sugar to my liking then i top each with cayanne, 350 indirect until bacon is crisp 30-45 minutes

    My last attempt I used a combination of goat cheese, cheddar, cumin and chili powder.  They turn out great.  That is what we had on hand in the frig.

    I tried to make these a couple of weeks ago.  Be sure to buy good quality, lean and thick bacon.  All I had on hand was breakfast bacon and it was too thin and fatty.

    I plan on making these again for football season as well.  Good luck.
