We have an annual ladies' league billiard tournament, and we all bring things for a pot luck snack.

I need help coming up with a new recipe for this year - something that will really stand out, but is OK to sit out on a buffet table for six hours - either cold or in a crock pot.

Last year's dish was a hit -

Bacon Wrapped Sweet Smokies

Preheat oven to: Broil
Preheat crock pot: Low

Ingredients:
Little Smokies
Bacon
Brown Sugar

Tools:
Cookie sheet with edges, lined w/ tin foil
Toothpicks
Crockpot

Cut the bacon into thirds. (If the bacon is slightly frozen it's much easier)
Wrap a piece of the bacon around a little smokie & secure with a toothpick.
Place on a cookie sheet lined w/ tin foil (grease w/ Pam or Crisco Spray to make clean up easier).
When cookie sheet is full, sprinkle a generous helping of brown sugar over the wrapped wienies.
Broil until the bacon is fully cooked.
Remove from oven and scoop the wienies and the drippings into a crockpot to keep warm.


I've never written a recipe before, and I'm not much on measuring. You really can't go wrong.


If you have a wowser recipe that you bring to pot lucks, please share!

Thanks!!

Here's a good substitute.  Instead of weiners, try chicken chunks.  And add a little worcestershire sauce in the pot when they are being kept warm.  They are my favorites.

That sounds great! Do you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts? Pan fry & chunk them up?

I use boneless, skinless breasts, but I cut them while they are still slightly frozen.  Pan fry with a little butter, then add them to your recipe.  Easy peasy.

I do a kitchen-sink baked mac and cheese. All of my fave cheeses and spices, broccoli, spinach, panko, wheat macaroni, mushrooms, whatever looks good and whatever I have in bulk! It's a crowd pleaser, filled with fat and so easy to personalize!

My favorite to make is my moms baked ziti.  It's sooo good.
