Bacon-licious Sausage Bites Stuffed with Cheese

Crispy Bacon wrapped around sausage stuffed with cheese

Introducing my latest edition of Tailgating Fabulous, Bacon babe reporting….

These might be illegal in 11 states.  We’re talking pieces of kielbasa wrapped in bacon and then stuffed with a mixture of cream and Mexican cheeses, sprinkled with a little brown sugar and BBQ rub.  OH yeah, baby.

When you wrap the bacon around the kielbasa pieces, the bottom of the bacon is flush against the sausage so there’s room to pipe the cheese and green chili mixture in.  You can secure them with toothpicks or put them on a skewer.

Once you wrap the bacon around the kielbasa, you’ll have room to pipe the cheese on top. *Pic courtesy of Egg Head Forum.

If you don’t have access to a grill, just put these bad boys in the oven at 300 for 45 minutes to slow cook that bacon– then crank it up to 450 for about 10 minutes to crisp up the bacon.  

Bacon Bites of Awesome

Warning: You won’t be able to eat just one!

Now, let’s talk beer….

Bacon Bites Paired with Lager

Pair these baconlicious bites with an American Lager

Pair Baconlicious Sausage & Cheese Bites with an American Lager.  A classic American lager has a malty sweetness that highlights the smokiness of the bacon and the savory, creamy sausage and cheese layer.  The lager’s balance of crisp hoppiness accentuates the rich flavors without being overpowering.
