Wanted to try out a couple easy Pinterest recipes for you guys that would be quick options for Super Bowl Sunday this weekend! These Pigskins in a Blanket (so clever lol) & Football Deviled Eggs are perfect to put out if you’re hosting or bringing to friends house. These are the ones I made last year. I feel like these two are staples anyways and this is just a little way you can make them a little more festive. Also, grabbed this egg cooker that makes life so much easier! This year I decided to try these bacon brown sugar smokies and easy brownies!
Football Deviled Eggs Recipe
- 6 Hard boiled eggs
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- pinch of pepper
- green onions
- Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat. Cover and let stand for about 15 minutes. Pour off the hot water and rapidly cool eggs by running them under cold water (or place in ice water) until completely cooled. (or use the super easy egg cooker like I did lolol.) Peel the eggs and cut them in half, and place the yolks in a bowl. Reserve the whites on a serving tray.
- Mix the mayonnaise, dried mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper into the yolks. Spoon about 1 tablespoon into each egg white half. Add thinly sliced green onion to resemble the stitching on a football. Refrigerate until serving.
Pigskins in a Blanket
- 2 tubes (8 oz each) refrigerated crescent rolls
- 24 mini hot dogs
- Egg wash
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1 tsp. coarse salt
- Yellow Mustard
- Ketchup, for serving
- Preheat oven to 375º. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Slice crescent rolls lengthwise into thirds. Place a mini hot dog on the thick end of each triangle and roll up.
- Arrange the pigs in a football shape, sided by side, on the baking sheet. They should be touching! Brush with egg wash and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the crescents are golden.
- Draw lines with yellow mustard to mimic the laces of a football. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving. Serve with ketchup for dipping.
Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Smokies
- Lil smokies cocktail links
- Maple flavored bacon – cut into thirds

- Remove the little smokies from packaging and pat dry with a paper towel.
- Wrap each smokie with one piece of bacon. Secure through the middle with a toothpick.
- In a gallon size bag mix together the brown sugar and ground chipotle pepper.
- Add the bacon wrapped smokies to the bag. Seal and gently shake until evenly coated.
- Arrange on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until the bacon has crisped.
