Crock Pot Lil Smokies
What are Lil Smokies?
If you haven’t seen these little beauties sitting on the buffet line at a family or friend get together, allow us to enlighten you. Lil Smokies are basically mini hot dogs. Generally made with pork, turkey or beef. Because they are fully cooked, you can eat them cold, but most of the time you see them simmering in a sauce — like this yummy one below. I have also seen them wrapped in pastry dough to make tiny pigs in a blanket.
More Game Day or Game Night Snacks
- We love the slow cooker version of lil smokies, but if you’re looking to up the ante a bit, check out our recipe for Bacon Wrapped Lil Smokies. Because seriously. What doesn’t taste even better with bacon?
- Another favorite is our Sweet and Spicy Slow Cooker Meatballs. Think savory meatballs slathered in sweet savory sauce. Just a little kick.
- If you need to satisfy a sweet tooth, either for an appetizer or dessert, check out the Almond Joy Chex Mix. It combines two favorite treats, Almond Joy Candy Bars and Muddy Buddy Chex Mix! Or how about some No Bake Avalanche Bark. With peanut butter, crispie rice cereal, marshmallows, white and chocolate chips… mmmm.
- Speaking of Chex Mix, you should definitely try our Game Night Chex Mix the next time you break out the Scrabble board (or any game, of course). It’s toasty, savory and (warning!) a little addicting.
- One recipe we love is Ham Roll Ups with Pickle are literally the easiest things you will ever make. Perfect for after-school snacks, appetizers or finger-foods for parties.
