Win with Weekend Game Entertaining

STEP 1: PLANNING

I wish I could tell you how much I love football. But I can't. Because the only thing I love about game-time season is the food! I usually make a lot of easy appetizers, set them out to nibble on while we enjoy the game. With my busy schedule, lately I have been making super easy snacks that require little to no time! In fact, these 3 snacks can ALL be made in 30 minutes!

STEP 2: THE FOOD

Today I'm going a way to "fancy" up your Hillshire Farm Lit'l Smokies! My absolute favorite are the Bacon Wrapped Lit’l Smokies! Bacon strips, brown sugar, and Lit'l Smokies!

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil (for easy clean up), place a wire rack on top and set aside while you prepare the Lit’l Smokies.
  2. Cut each bacon slice with kitchen shears in 2-3 pieces.
  3. Dip each piece of bacon into brown sugar lightly coating both sides, and wrap it around a Lit'l Smokie. Place it on the wire rack. Repeat until you think you have enough bacon wrapped smokies for your game day party!
  4. Place the baking sheet into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the bacon is browned and the sugar is melted. Serve warm!
