You can assemble them for serving, or set them out with bowls of slaw and onions and let people make their own

Place squares into a silicone mini muffin mold  {if you use silicone you don’t have to line or spray it}

Adjust ingredients according to desired number of cupcakes

1/3 sheet of puff pastry will make 8 mini cupcakes

cooked pulled pork, or shredded meat

BBQ sauce

Coleslaw mix

Bleu cheese dressing, coleslaw dressing, or dressing of choice

Crispy onions*

Mix coleslaw with dressing to taste and refrigerate for several hours to soften and combine flavors.  Cut thawed puff pastry into small squares, about 8 squares per 1/3 sheet.  Place in a silicone mini muffin pan or a sprayed or greased mini muffin pan.  Top each square with a heaping portion of cooked shredded pork or beef.  Drizzle liberally with a thick BBQ sauce.  Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes until pastry is done.  Carefully remove from pan.  Serve with slaw and crispy onions, or assemble cupcakes and arrange on a platter.  Serve warm or at room temperature.

 

*I recommend Fresh Gourmet Crispy Onions which taste great right out of the bag without heating.  Look for them near the croutons and salad dressing

We did enjoy a BBQ pork butt for dinner and then used the leftovers for these cupcakes several days later, with commerical BBQ sauce, bottled bleu cheese dressing, and the Fresh Gourmet Onions

Whether you make everything from scratch or take a few short cuts, you will have a winner with this recipe!

Thanks so much for stopping by during these busy days!

Remember, these are just a little bite, no need for guilt 😋

    This is right up our alley Jenna! We have pulled pork in the freezer from the Big Green Egg and this the way we like to graze while watching a ball game or tree trimming. I’m still trying to get our tree decorated and bins put away with four dogs underfoot, I think I need a cupcake 🙂
