Lit’l Smokies Mini Pretzel Hot Dogs & Grilled Hot Dog Mac ‘n Cheese
November 30, 2014
I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about these two recipes I created with famous Lit’l Smokies for Hillshire Farm. Your football party will rock with these recipes! Lit’l Smokies Mini Pretzel Hot Dogs. Growing up the first thing I grabbed for at any party were Pigs in Blankets. These are like those but better! Seriously, I would have a stack of them on a teeny tiny cocktail napkin.
And how about Grilled Lit’l Smokies Mac ‘n Cheese. OMG. I took this to a friends house (the Cowboy’s game was on) and we downed this mac. I mean it was gone in minutes! Aren’t these recipes so fun?! You need to make them both at your parties! Keep reading for the recipes…
Let’s start with the Lit’l Smokies Mini Pretzel Wrapped Hot Dogs.
Perfect homemade pretzel dough is wrapped around the cocktail dogs, brushed with egg yolk & dusted with coarse salt.
They don’t take long to assemble (prepare the dough ahead of time) & they are the ultimate crowd pleaser.
Perfect for kids & adults!
Grilled Lit’l Smokies Mac ‘n Cheese. In this mac ‘n cheese I grilled the little dogs first. It really adds to the flavor when you do that!
Then I made a simple cheesy sauce with shredded cheddar & mozzarella & half & half.
Dreamy I know!
Now let’s get cooking. These recipes are perfect for weeknight family meals & for the lunch box too.
