Crisp little puff pastry shells stuffed with BBQ pork and topped with THE MOST delicious Apple Bacon Slaw -- super simple appetizers that are perfect for tailgating and parties.
  • For the Apple Bacon Slaw:
  • 2 cups finely chopped cabbage
  • 1 cup finely chopped tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked, drained on paper towels, and crumbled (2 tablespoons bacon grease reserved)
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • For the BBQ Bites:
  • 1 package puff pastry shells ( I used the small shells - 24 to a package)
  • 1½ cups warm BBQ Pork * See Note*
  1. To make the slaw toss together the cabbage, apples, onions, and bacon. Sprinkle with the sugar and toss to coat.
  2. In a small bowl stir together the mayonnaise, cider vinegar, and dijon mustard until smooth. Whisk in the reserved bacon grease. Pour the dressing over the cabbage mixture and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate until you're ready to use.
  3. Cook the puff pastry shells according to package directions (typically 400°F for about 10 minutes, using an egg wash to make the pastry golden).
  4. Spoon BBQ Pork into each shell and then top with the Apple Bacon Slaw.
These BBQ Bites are PERFECT for using up leftovers! I love using the pork from these Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Tacos, but you can also chop up leftover roast pork and toss it with your favorite BBQ sauce. I like to make sure to warm up any leftovers before using them.
