Smoked-sausage-cups-with-jalapeno-cheese-and-egg-bbq-breakfast-bites

Ingredients:

  • 1lb ground sausage ( I used Jimmy Dean – use whatever is your favorite brand)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded aged cheddar cheese
  • 1 jalapeno finely minced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • non stick spray

Preheat your grill to 250F Indirect

Divide the sausage into 12 equal parts

Flip a mini muffin pan over and spray the bases of the pan with non stick spray.

Mold sausage parts over the base of the pan forming cups. I left lots of room between cups so the sausage would get as much color and smoke as possible.

Grill indirect for 15-20 minutes until the sausage cups have set the shape and much of the grease has run off into the pan.

Remove cups from pan and set on grill.

Whisk eggs, cheese, jalapeno, milk and season with salt & pepper.

Fill cups with egg mixture.

Return to grill and cook approx 10 -15 minutes until eggs are set and cheese is melted.

Remove from grill & eat. Enjoy.

PS. I also tried one with a biscuit. I formed the biscuit over the sausage cup while it was cooking on the inverted pan. Then I flipped it out.Tasted great.  The possibilities are endless on what you can fill these sausage cups with – my husband has already requested biscuit wrapped sausage cups filled with sausage gravy. His birthday is coming up. I am sure these will be on the menu that day along with a side of lipitor.
