Game Day Recipe Playbook: BBQ X’s & O’s

Game Day Smokies

Yay – football is back!  Not only do I LOVE watching football, I love the excuse it gives me to theme-out a party.  This appetizer for BBQ X’s & O’s (Smokies & Meatballs) is one right out of my game day playbook – pun intended! 🙂


  • 2 packages of Little Smokies or other brand mini hotdogs (Safeway has nitrate-free smokies!)
  • 2 dozen of your favorite meatballs (frozen)
  • 1& 1/2 c. BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 c. Teriyaki Sauce
  • 1/4 c. Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 Small White Onion, minced
  • 1 T. Dijon Mustard
  • 1 T. Brown Sugar
  • 1 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1 tsp. Salt


  1. Add all ingredients to a 4-Quart Slow cooker.
  2. Stir well.  Cover and cook on LOW for 2 Hours, or until heated through.
  3. Serve from the slow cooker on WARM setting, or plate in a cute X & O arrangement – just like the plays the football coaches draw up!

Happy Crocking!!
