Lynda's Lit'l Beef Smokie Blankets


1 tube Crescent Rolls

1 1lb. pkg. Lit'l Beef Smokies

Assorted mustards and barbeque sauces for dipping


Open tube of biscuits and cut each rectangle into 4 smaller triangles.  Wrap Lit'l Smokies in the triangles, starting at the large end.  Bake as directed for Crescent Rolls.  Arrange on a platter with assorted dipping condiments.




Ryan's Sweet little Smokey's


1 pkg. Little Smokeys

1 pkg. bacon (thin sliced)

brown sugar (to sprinkle on top)



Cut bacon slices in thirds.  Wrap a slice of bacon around each little smokey and place on a jelly roll pan.  Sprinkle each wrapped wiener with brown sugar (be generous!).  Place a toothpick in each one and bake at 300° for 8-10 minutes.




Carrie's Stuffed Mushrooms


40 white button mushrooms

1 pkg. Jimmy Dean sausage (whichever flavor, spicy is good)

2 pkgs. cream cheese



First, heat oven to 300° F.  Next, take the mushrooms and pop the stems out.  You can do this with a spoon or push the stem gently to the side.  It should break off pretty easy.  Rinse the mushrooms and set on a cookie sheet or in a cake pan.  Next, cook the sausage on the stove.  Empty grease in separate container.  Put the cooked sausage into a medium sized bowl.  Mix the packages of cream cheese in with the sausage.  If the sausage has a hard time mixing, put the mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.  When mixed well, use a spoon to scoop spoon fulls of the mixture into the mushrooms (where the stem was).  Cook the mushrooms for 20-30 minutes or until the top of the mixture starts to brown.  Be careful when you remove from the oven.  They will be VERY hot.  That's it!  Hope you and your family/friends enjoy these as much as we do.  Happy Superbowl!




Wendy's Potato Skins


Scrub several potatoes, and place in a baking dish.  Bake at 450° for approximately an hour.  Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes.  When you can handle the potatoes, slice them in half, lengthwise.  Scoop out most of the potato, leaving you with a "shell" of skin.  Make sure you leave enough potato flesh that the skin can support itself.  Put all of the potato filling in a bowl, and add a bit of garlic powder and some ranch dressing.  Mix up, and let people have a scoop of mashed potatoes.


Now, back to the skins.  Sprinkle a bit of cheddar on each skin, and add a few crumbled bits of bacon, and some chopped green onion.


Put the skins back in the oven, and let back for about 8 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly.


Arrange the potato skins on a large serving dish with a container of sour cream in the middle.  Your guests will LOVE it.
