Peyton’s on the screen, so get out of the kitchen!

With Super Bowl XLI taking over our Sunday this week, the family asked for some quick and easy snacks to enjoy on Feb. 4.
These recipes are so simple one might be a little embarrassed to give it out. But they will get you out of the kitchen with some tasty treats and in front of the television to watch the ballgame.

So whip up some simple snacks with these Pigs in a Blanket and Barbecue Smokies.

We have also included a recipe from Food Network that fits our theme. It’s for the big eaters: Hogs in a Sleeping Bag.
Pigs in a Blanket

1 or 2 pkgs. (depending on your crowd) crescent rolls, 8 oz.
1 or 2 pkgs. Little Smokies weiners


Cut each of the eight crescent roll dough triangles in half, length wise.
Place 1 weiner at large end. Roll up and place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
Serve with mustard, honey mustard, ketchup or barbecue sauce.

Barbecue Weiners

1 or 2 pkgs. (12 oz.) Little Smokie Weiners
18 oz. bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard


Combine all ingredients. Heat throughly.
Hogs in a Sleeping Bag

1 (16-ounce) package polska kielbasa
2 sheets puff pastry, thawed and lightly rolled out
1 egg

Honey mustard, barbecue sauce or apricot jam, for serving, optional

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cut kielbasa into 6 (4-inch) pieces. Cut puff pastry sheets into thirds (6 strips).

Roll each piece of kielbasa in puff pastry and place on a baking sheet.

Beat egg in a small dish and brush generously over pastry. Bake until pastry is golden brown and puffed, about 20 minutes. Serve with mustard, barbecue sauce, or jam, if desired.
