Tailgate Treats!

Today is the big Hawkeye/Cyclone rivalry game and I am thrilled to be heading out to Iowa City this morning!  I am taking our oldest son to his first game (that he'll remember) and we are so excited to be heading west.  One of the best parts of going to the game is...TAILGATING!  I've had a few sick kiddos this week, but with a last-minute trip to the store and some cooperative cooking with Grandma, we have a good spread for the game.

We plan on having sloppy joes, bacon wrapped wienies, fruit with fruit dip, cheese and crackers, chips, and cookie bars.  Today I thought I'd share a few recipes with you in case you are in the mood to tailgate, too.  Go Hawkeyes!

Bacon Wrapped Wienies

1 package Little Smokies
1 lb. bacon
1 lb. light brown sugar

Line a jelly roll pan with parchment paper.  Cut entire slab of bacon into thirds.  Wrap wienies in bacon, secure bacon with toothpick, and sprinkle brown sugar on top.  Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes.  Enjoy!

Fruit Dip

1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow fluff
1 package cream cheese (I use light)
1 T. orange juice

Beat cream cheese with a hand mixer, add marshmallow fluff and orange juice, mix until well blended. Serve with your favorite fruit.

Go Hawkeyes!
