Hodag Cookies
Description:A great appetizer for demo cooking!   Think of Hodag Cookies as mini pizzas with advantages.  Easy to make, grill and serve.  Guests and family will be impressed with the fun and great taste these cookies offer.   And the name; I use the grilled cookies as bait to catch Hodags..a very rare and elusive animal with BIG teeth.  No kidding.  

4 links of Italian sausage (or your favorite sausage)

1/4 medium onion

1/4 medium green pepper

8 Bays English muffin halves

Grated cheese, chedder or mozzarella or whatever you like

6oz. tomato paste,

Dizzy Pig Seasoning, your choice


Set up your cooker for grilling direct and let it settle in at 325-350 degrees dome.

In a food processor chop onion and pepper. 

Squeeze out the sausage from the casings and add sausage to the processor.  Blend until well mixed and smooth, about 30 seconds of blending.

With a butter knife spread the sausage mixture into the muffin halves so the little holes are filled and the sausage is about 1/4 inch thick over the entire surface.  Tip;  You may want to try toasting the muffin halves on the grill first before the sausage mixture is spread into the little holes as bread texture option.

Oil the grid and place sausage side down on grid.  Grill for about 20-25 minutes or until meat is cooked and has some crispy edges.  Tip; Check sausage after about 10 minutes of grilling and if one side of the grid is cooking faster than the other rotate grid or move the Hodags around accordingly.

Remove Hodags and place sausage side up onto a pizza pan and spread on a thin buttering of tomato paste then lay on the cheese.  The cheese will stick to the tomato paste.

Place the pizza pan with Hodags back on the grid and cook until cheese is melted, about 5-8 minutes.  Sprinkle on a dash of seasoning to each and your ready to serve Hodag Cookies!  Yummmmmm. 



Notes:If you have a small processor, blend sausage in two batches. When cooking at a demo, pre-mix the sausage at home first. 8 Hodag Cookies can be sliced into halves or quarters for handouts. Quarter slices will make 32 bite size handouts!
