Man Pleasing Appetizers

Lil' Smokies

You will need:

1 package Hillshire Farms Lil Smokies.
1 package center cut bacon...much better for munching on...no gross, gummy fat.
(+-) 1 cup brown sugar. (You want to put a fair amount of brown sugar on top of the smokies so they can
 soak it up while in the oven and caramelize into pure deliciousness.) 
1 box toothpicks.

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 375, and get a pan (preferably one with sides for drippings) prepped with foil on it.
2. Cut your bacon into three sections.
3.Wrap a section of bacon around a lil smokie and secure with a toothpick. Repeat until bacon/smokies are gone.
4. Cover with brown sugar
5. Cook at 375 for 25-30min, and enjoy. These little guys taste bomb with hot mustard.


Sweet & Sour Meatballs

You will need:

A crock pot
3 lbs meatballs
32 oz grape jelly
32 oz pace picante sauce.

Directions:

1. OK, folks, here's where you need to pay attention...this recipe varies for each person depending on how spicy/sweet you want your meatballs. 
Mix together your picante sauce and grape jelly in a separate bowl and come up with a blend that suits your taste buds. 
You may not use the whole container of the pace, I don't. Pour your mixin' into the crock pot and add the meatballs. 
I buy the hefty bag from Costco and used about half.

2. Cook on high for 3-4 hours.
