Recipe: Paleo Pigs in a Blanket

Friday, January 31, 2014

 

The Super Bowl is this weekend, which, I dunno, means something about football. To me, it's just always been a terrific snacking opportunity. Being Paleo for parties and sporting events is often pretty difficult, which is why I always try to eat dinner before I go, and always contribute a dish so I know there's at least one thing there that I can snack on.

This year, I'm bringing my Paleo take on Pigs in a Blanket! If you haven't noticed yet, my Paleo version of anything that is usually covered in bread is just wrapped in bacon instead. I also made a honey mustard sauce for dipping, because I think Super Bowl snacks are all about dipping, and I totally love a little homemade sauce to fancy up a dish. Happy Super Bowl weekend, friends, and go...team, go!

   
Ingredients:
One to two packages of cocktail smokies
Bacon (I love Trader Joes' Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon)
Two tablespoons Dijon mustard
Two tablespoons of honey
Salt, pepper, and a spritz of lemon juice to taste

1. Cut each strip of bacon into three parts.
2. Wrap each piece around one of the sausages. Secure with a toothpick.
3. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
4. While that's in the oven, put mustard and honey in a bowl and mix together with a spoon.
5. Add salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice.
6. Serve the honey mustard with your Paleo Pigs in a Blanket and enjoy!

  2. I'm going to a potluck soon and needed something to take, preferably that I could eat! This is perfect, especially since I have a pack of lil' smokies in the freezer right now!
