Lil' Smokies aka Pigs in a Blanket
Football time is here!! We enjoy football season! We look forward to it!
There is nothing like the competitiveness of the SEC. Living in the South, football is just more than an athletic event. It's "off the chain!"
My husband is serious about "HIS" team. He is serious about winning. Now, don't get me wrong, many of you know that I am an extremely competitive person and was a collegiate athlete. So...I am all about a good game and a winning season.
But...football season is much more than "the game".
It is about great friends and good food too!!
This weekend, we are gonna have some friends to the house and enjoy our season opener!!
My mind is already churning about what we are gonna eat. I love it!
These Lil' Smokies are a crowd pleaser. You can't go wrong. They will disappear before your eyes.
2 simple ingredients:
1 can of crescent rolls
1 package of smokies
Dump your smokies on a paper towel- lined plate. It will help absorb all the liquid.
You want your smokies to be dry. The crescent roll will stick better to a dry smokie.
Unroll your crescent rolls. They will naturally roll out into triangles. This is a good thing.
**This is the coolest little hint** I saw this on Southern Plate and it was so clever. Cut your crescent roll into five pieces. Just like the photo.
Now roll your smokies up.
Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Immediately remove your Lil' Smokies from the cookie sheet and put onto serving plate. This step will help keep the dough stay firm, not get soggy on you.
Football season is here...bring it! Kristi
