It’s the best time of year! Time for all the wonderful holidays and cooking and time together with friends and family! It’s party time people! If you are throwing a party or going to a party anytime in the near future, you need to make these DELICIOUS pretzel wrapped Lit’l Smokies! They will be gobbled up and are really the perfect party food.
Pretzel Wrapped Lit’l Smokies
I live in Bend, Oregon…which if any of you have ever been here you will know two things; 1. It is BEAUTIFUL here. 2. People like their beer here. As a non-drinker I don’t participate in that second part, BUT because of all the breweries here, we have the most AMAZING places to eat. You can’t walk downtown for more than a few steps without seeing another brewery, pub or ale house. Everyone knows the best food comes from those places! The sauces, the desserts, the bratwursts, the fish and chips, the burgers…oh the burgers! Another thing a lot of them have? Pretzels. Delicious soft baked pretzels. That’s where my inspiration came from today. This post is being sponsored by Hillshire Brands™ and anytime I get an excuse to pick up some Lit’l Smokies at Safeway, they find their way into my cart.
I chose Cheddar flavor, because HELLO!?! I am sticking them in a pretzel, and what makes a pretzel better every. single. time? Cheese. Cheese does.
These are so simple, and if you feel so inclined, your kids can totally help with most of the steps…you know they are going to help with the eating, so you might as well get them involved with the cooking!
This is my kid’s favorite part, helping brush the tops with egg, it’s like painting in the kitchen without mom having a panic attack. They go a little nuts.
About 15 minutes later you can pop these little yum yums in your mouth, or set them out for a party…if they last that long.
Like I said, I bought my Lit’l Smokies at Safeway, and I used the Just for U coupon. If you have a Safeway nearby, you already know about the Safeway card because it can save you all the time, but if you don’t use the Just for U, you are missing out on LOTS of savings! You search for things on your grocery list and if they have a coupon for it, you click add coupon and they will add the coupon to your Safeway card. You don’t have to do anything else. It’s just there! So easy, and fun. 🙂 Hillshire Brands™ has several coupons on there right now, so you can add protein to any meal!
What’s your favorite way to eat Lit’l Smokies? This is just one of many ways for us. I’ll have to share more recipes soon, since they are a family favorite!
