Super Bowl Time!!!

There has been a lot of talk around here about the Super Bowl….NOT because either of our local teams are in it…sadly, they are not, but because New Jersey is hosting it this year.  Neither the JETS (my team) nor the Giants will be playing, but we will still be watching.  We are a football liking family.  My husband is a football lover, but he has 2 daughters and a wife….therefore we like, we don’t love unless the JETS are playing.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting lots of recipes that would be perfect for any Super Bowl party or football Sunday!  My family and I love appetizers, dips and other fun finger foods….messy ones especially!  The messier, the better in my opinion.  You will find lots of great recipes over the next few weeks…all of which are tried and true.   Dips to hearty appetizers….lightened up recipes and sweets too!

Let’s start the party off right with this little number!  Someone made these for  my New Year’s Eve party this year and it was definitely the big winner that night!   People were raving about these hot dogs.  I even overheard a father pushing them on his 8 year old daughter…”You gotta try this….it’s the best thing you will ever eat!  It’s a HOT DOG..WRAPPED IN BACON!!!!!  (very enthusiastic!)   You really just have to try it, you won’t be disappointed!”  She took one bite and was hooked!  I heard another father say to his 13 year old, “It’s a hot dog wrapped in bacon…if you try it and don’t like…I will give you $5!”   Another one hooked!  Both True Stories.

It was the only food (and we had a lot of delicious food that night) that was completely GONE by the end of the night!   I have no idea where they got the recipe, but I’m so glad these landed in my kitchen!   They are FAR from healthy…in fact they might just be one of the most unhealthy things ever…..but who cares??   If you are still sticking to your “New Year’s Diet”….then just bookmark this page for a month from now…when you won’t give a damn and you’re looking for a great Super Bowl recipe to please everyone (even the ones still dieting)!

I’ve gone ahead and named this recipe “Jimmy’s Smokies” because  he and his wife recently told me they have named meatballs I make (recipe coming soon), “Gianna’s Meatballs.”  It felt like the right thing to do!  🙂  So without further ado….

Jimmy’s Smokies

1 package of hot dogs

1 package of bacon

Brown Sugar

Toothpicks

Preheat Oven to 350°

Cut hot dogs into quarters.

Wrap each piece of hot dog in 1/3 of a strip of bacon and secure with toothpick all the way thru (so you can easily pick it up and eat it later).

Place all wrapped hot dogs on baking sheet.

Sprinkle brown sugar all over hot dogs.

Cook for 25-30 minutes.

***Keep and eye on them from 20 minutes on….just to make sure they aren’t burning.  Oven times may vary***  

HEAVEN!!!!
