First time Pork Shots

Tried some Pork Shots last night, followed R2EGG2Q's recipe 
They were fantastic. The question I got most was how many calories?

    I don't think anything wrapped in bacon should say, "how many calories?"

    Glad you liked them! I can't help you with the calorie count as I can't count that high. :-\"

    Those look great.  I cooked some tonight for the first time as well.  I also used the same filling and stuffed some mushrooms.  They were both tasty.

  • they are Delicious   I turned the first batch into hockey pucks  but the 2nd go round was awesome!
    I also did 1/2 batch w adobo chilli peppers , and liked that batch better than green chillies if you want to try that. the heat was nice!
  • I just tried some of these the other day and the cream cheese filling was a little to rich for my taste. I will definitely try these again though.

  • These have to be one of the best apps ever !!  They are crazy good.  Just wish they didnt take so long to prep and make.  I usually try to make an extra batch to freeze and make ahead of time.

    @grillingunner - I agree, they are too rich.  I can handle just one.  I made mine with ricotta instead of cream cheese so it holds together nicely, and I topped with a little jalapeno jam.  Good, but one was enough.

    I've been looking for a healthier choice of filling.
