Today's Football Munchies - Snausages

Snausages.  Snausages.  Snausages.

The ingredients are simple — lil’ smokies and bread mix.  A bread maker helps, too!

  • Mix the bread dough on the dough setting — don’t bake!
  • Wrap the dough around the smokies – one at a time.
  • Put on greased cookie sheet (or on silpat or baking parchment)
  • Bake for 15 min at 350F.
  • Serve with dipping sauces like Mendocino Mustard


Playing with bread dough is FUN!  I didn’t get flour out first which certainly would have helped with the stickiness.  I made Greg come and take pictures!


Arrange them on the cookie sheet (obviously, I went with the silpat sheet).


Did I mention it was sticky?  Sticky is fun!

Sharp-eyed observers will notice that those are NOT Lil’ Smokies in the background.  When I originally planned to make these a few weeks ago, I made the bread dough and then realized that I was late for a memorial service.  Oops.  I bolted out the door, changing into appropriate attire as I went.  I ended up using the smokies for another favorite way to use them – add them to ramen soup.  Yummy!  I toss baby carrots in, too.  Easy!  Anyway, when Greg went to the store for me today, our local market let us down — no Lil’ Smokies.  Guys, let this be a lesson to you . . . keep some bread dough in the cupboard and some Lil’Smokies in the freezer.  And, you’ll be ready for some football!

The end result is yummy!  My children love these.  Even my daughter who is notoriously picky.  She is even taking the leftovers for lunch tomorrow . . . well, what Gage didn’t take to share with the boys playing soccer across the street!  A neighborhood hit!

Oh, and we call them Snausages because they vaguely resemble the dog treat and the word makes my sister laugh.

Snausages.  Snausages.  Snausages.
