Links fixed February 28, 2013 Meat Lovers two Bite Muffins aka... meatball on steroids!This recipe is basically a meatball on steroids. The recipe is OK, but really needs to be served with a brown gravy or better yet a marinara sauce. I topped some with mozzarella and some were served plain with brown gravy, Play around with this recipe and find a combination you like. You can just make these as meatballs and serve in a chafing dish with a gravy. I just had a few today at work for lunch, I think they are better the next day. A1 Sauce 1 chub of hot Italian sausage 2 pounds 80/20 ground beef 1 small onion 1/3rd pound of bacon 1/4 cup of pepperoni Cheese (optional) Serving options: Brown gravy Marinara sauce Jimmy Dean hot sausage and 80/20 ground beef. Cook the bacon, pour off extra grease grease, cook the pepperoni, add the onions and brown. Cooked ingredients cooling. Add the A1 Sauce to the meat Then add the cooled cooked ingredients and mix, try not to over mix, just work everything in. Fry test. Roll into balls, place in a greased mini muffin pan, flatten tops then dimple the center. On the smoker at 275° Coming along nicely, at this point there was a lot of liquid in the muffin pan, the muffins were actually starting to float. I just tilted the pan to the side and poured out some of the excess liquid. Cheese cubed and ready for topping, this is mozzarella. I did have some German Beer cheese to top the muffins with, but I tasted the cheese and it was nasty... that's pretty bad coming from me, I will eat almost anything. We'll let that cheese melt about 10 minutes or so. Time to remove the muffins, Take note here, if you don't cheese the tops, I would remove the muffins from the pan and place them individually on the grates once they are fairly firm... about an hour in should be fine. While the cheese is still hot, you may want to tuck the cheese in a bit or remove right away and let the cheese drape over the side. No cheese ready for gravy. Gravy added. Money Shot Topped with cheese money shot. Side by side. I removed the toothpicks from the cheese muffins before serving.
