Lit’l Smokies Party Animals


The big game is just a few days away. And I’ve got an adorable game day appetizer idea I think you’re going to love, these cute Lit’l Smokies footballs.

These are too easy to make. You just wrap around a strip of cheese on your little sausage. Then make the “laces” of the football with mustard.


I just used my regular mustard bottle to make the lines, but a piping bag with a very fine tip will do an even better job.


These are so simple, they would be a great appetizer to have your kids help out with. How fun would it be for your little ones to make a plate of footballs for the big game.
