Take a look at this beautiful thing... Heart shaped pancakes (from the griddle, can't get the batter to stop falling through the grill grate), and smoked sausage wrapped around cream cheese stuffed peppers. But, these three pieces of sausage were the only good looking pieces of of 1 pound of sausage, two beautiful peppers and an entire package of cream cheese. I destroyed those beautiful ingredients.
Before you judge me, keep in mind that I can make a Raspberry Chipotle Marinated Spiral Stuffed Pork Loin with a Bacon Lattice with a provolone cheese accent!
I just can't make these...
Here's what happened...
Started simple enough, couple of peppers, stuffed with cream cheese, and a pound of sausage...
Wrapped the peppers in the sausage
I gently put em on the grill, indirect heat.
Started toasting up nicely...
Then the damage started... The sausage pulled away from the pepper and started to disintegrate. Lots of the stuff ended up in the bottom of the grill. Worse, the sausage pulled away from the opening of the pepper, and about half of the cream cheese fell out (and smoked the crap out of my grill).
At this point, it was so ugly I stopped taking pictures. I couldn't focus through the tears. But, as I tried to cut what was left of the finished product into slices, more and more of the cream cheese oozed out.
Til eventually, I ended up with flattened peppers and just a tiny amount of cream cheese in the middle. I salvaged three pieces that were barely nice enough to serve to my wife, but you should have seen the crap that i was left with for me to eat.
But the crap still tasted great, just looked awful.
Ah well, live and learn and do better next time... I am going to list this as a TIP in my label section, but my tip is to check out someone elses recipe and grilling method for these.
BTW, keep reading my blog, this is my third posting of the day, plenty more fun stuff to read, and see you all tomorrow for better news from my grill
