If you are looking for an easy-peasy appetizer to make for the Super Bowl, bacon-wrapped pretzels fit the bill. When I first saw this appetizer, I could not imagine eating it or even liking it. But oh…my it is yummy and easy to make. You can make the version with the brown sugar and seasonings or make it with just bacon and the pretzel rods. Either way, you cannot go wrong!

Cream Cheese Sausage Balls

I know what you are thinking…cream cheese in sausage balls? OH. MY. YES! These were a big hit at Christmas and would be great for a Super-Bowl party!

We like our sausage balls with a little spice to them so I buy hot sausage but mild works fine.  The original recipe called for 4 ounces of cheddar cheese but I decided to double it and I put in 8 ounces. Add cream cheese and Bisquick and you have a yummy, easy appetizer.

Enjoy!
