Spicy Apple Butter BBQ Pork Cupcakes


Bake them up the night before if you like – they’ll keep just fine. A quick reheat will have them back to oven fresh in mere seconds. And while we are keeping it simple, go ahead and use store bought pulled pork. Nothing wrong with that at all. Maybe grab a container at the grocery or deli, or even pop into a local BBQ joint for a tub of theirs. What these are about is the sauce. The Spicy Apple Butter BBQ is the real winner in this recipe.

Step 1

Prepare 2 muffin tins with non stick baking spray; set aside.
Sauté onions in butter over medium heat until caramelized. Set aside.
Divide dough into 2 pieces. Roll out each piece of dough into a rectangle roughly 12 x 16.
In a small bowl, combine pork and half of sauce.
Top the rolled out dough with the remaining half of the sauce, the pork mixture, mozzarella, and sautéed onions.
Roll the rough up as you would cinnamon rolls. Pinch ends to seal.
Slice each roll into 12 equal slices, and place each cut side up into individual muffin cups. Allow to rise for 20 minutes while oven preheats to 375. Once the temperature reaches 375, place muffin tins in oven for 18-20 minutes, or until bread is golden brown and juices are bubbling. Remove from oven. Serve and enjoy!
