Super Bowl Appetizers

Well Folks, This Sunday is the biggest football game of the year, and a lot of you will either be hosting or are going to a Super Bowl Party. These parties are as much about the drinks and the food, as they are about the game. So in the next few days,I will be sharing some simple appetizers that I like, and you may want to try for the buffet table at your party.

The firsts recipe is for "MOINK" Balls, these little appetizers are fast becoming  a fan favorite at tailgate parties and any place where people gather to have a good time. These are real simple to make and are sure to become one of your go to snacks. All you need is a bag of frozen Beef Meat Balls and some Thin Sliced Bacon. You cut the bacon strips in half  and after seasoning the meat balls with your favorite BBQ rub, you then wrap  them with a half strip of bacon securing the bacon with a toothpick. You may need to put the frozen meat balls in the microwave for a few seconds so you can get the toothpick to go though the frozen meat balls. You don't want to cook the meat ball just soften it enough to get the toothpick to go though to secure the bacon. Now take some brown sugar and sprinkle over the top, to give each "MOINK" a little coat of sweetness.

Now set up your grill to cook indirect. Next put the "MOINKS" on the cool side, and grill till the bacon is crisp. You need to turn the MOINKS so they crisp up evenly. After the "MOINKS" are all nice and browned and the bacon is crisp. You will remove these tasty morsels from the grill and place them in a aluminum pan and pour on some of your favorite BBQ sauce to coat and return to the grill to heat the sauce.

These are hit every time I have made them and I'm sure they will be for you also. These are great because you can make as many or as few as you need. My suggestion is to make plenty because they go fast.

My pick for the Game will  be revealed on Friday.
