fun food friday!!! bacon wrapped little smokies

  ever watch the movie little mermaid with cher?? she only serves appetizers for dinner.. her character believed serving dinner was to much of a commitment.. yeah well it's kinda a weird movie but i loved it.. he he anyway.. i had a cousins dinner recently and while i didn't only serve appetizers {which might be fun for the next dinner theme, thanks cher} i did serve bbq favorites and these little smokies worked out perfect.. file these under what to serve when your cooking for a crowd.. or just yourself he he
yummy little smokies wrapped in bacon and baked til crispy perfection.. talk about easy peazy lemon squeezy!!

i served them with a bbq sauce but that isn't necessary if you don't want they are yummy all on their own..

back in the old days when we used to have superbowl parties.. some 18 years ago.. i always made little smokes in the crockpot.. toss in a couple of bags of little smokies, a bottle of store bought bbq sauce, a handful of brown sugar, a dash or 2 of tobasco and a tablespoon of bourbon..set to low and cook for 3-4 hours and serve right out of the crock pot.. so easy and so good.. they are something you serve when it's chilly outside.. but when it warms up outside today's little cuties are the ones you want to serve.. they can be served hot right out of the oven or room temperature..
