Display upsell on minicart modal

I would like to display the upsell products on the add to cart modal v10.0.2.0 I have tried to @Html.XmlPackage("upsellproducts.xml.config") in the _MiniCart.cshtml but it does not display anything.   Any body know what needs to be done to accomplish this?

That XML package requires some context info that it isn't going to have if you just slap it on the page like that.  It needs to be run by the UpsellProducts controller, which will provide the right info.  You'll probably have more luck doing it the way upsells are added to the checkout page:

@Html.Action(ActionNames.ShoppingCartUpsells, ControllerNames.UpsellProducts)

This does not seem to work, when I try to add an item I get this error Your item was not added to the cart because of an error
This does work @Html.XmlPackage("upsellproducts.xml.config", new { ProductID = "101" }) but I need to figure out how to get the ProductID there dynamicly. 
Side note the upsell products do not show on the checkout, it does show on the product page.
