Cheesy BBQ Brisket Bites


Cheesy BBQ Brisket Bites are the perfect, stress fee, easy party food that no one will be able to stop munching!

I love getting together with friends and I love getting together with friends with food.  With food at the center of every party, the “what should I make/bring” can be a little stressful – especially when you are a food blogger and people expect you to bring something crazy delicious.  But now I have just the crazy delicious party pleaser in my back pocket- soon to be your back pocket until you whip them up and you can’t stop stuffing your mouth with Cheesy BBQ Brisket Bites.

These Brisket Bites are so good I can eat half the pan in one sitting.  The Slow Cooker Beef Brisket is tantalizing delicious all on it’s own and when cocooned in puff pastry and smothered in cheese, we are talking some heavy hitting deliciousness.  I made these for a friends birthday and all 36 were devoured in minutes.

I used the same puff pastry method used in my Artichoke Dip Bites to make these bite size addicting morsels – and they turn out perfect every time –  and easy too! To make simply, unfold your puff pastry, cut each sheet into 36 squares – they don’t need to be perfect – thankfully.

Lay 2 squares perpendicular to each other in 2 mini muffin pans (you will use 1 ½ muffin pans).

Top each pastry with one tablespoon Beef Brisket – this is what makes these puffs.  Not only does this  brisket make your life easier, because you can make it the day before and reheat it, but it is the “best beef brisket ever” according to many reviews!  And I agree. Next, top your BBQ brisket with cheese and jalapeno for those who like more heat – and I do like – and bake.

    Hi Jen! I’ve seen this brisket at my local market but hesitated to try it because I don’t normally buy “prepared” food. With your recommendation I will definitely try it! I love small bites and these look so good and the ingredient list isn’t a page long! 🙂

    • Jen says

      It is totally great for those days when you need an easy throw together meal or appetizer! And yes, these bites are the shortest recipe I have on my site – ever 🙂

    Hi Jen! These look absolutely delicious 🙂 I would love to know what type of camera/lens you used if you don’t mind sharing – thank you!

    • Jen says

      Thanks so much Kelly! I uses a Canon 3ti with a 50mm lens for most shots and a 17-70mm for the above shots. I find the trick is to use a tripod so I can set my ISO as low as possible 🙂
