Tailgating or checking out the game at home, these mini chili pups are smoky, spicy and delicious. Great for snacking before the touchdown.

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Whisk egg with 1 teaspoon water and gently brush the tops of each roll. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.

  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook Lit'l Smokies smoked sausages until browned. At the same time, heat chili in a saucepan over medium heat until hot.

  • Cut each roll in half down the top, not cutting all the way through. Place a smoked sausage into each roll, top with a spoonful of chili and garnish with cheddar cheese, onion and jalapenos.

I used frozen rolls and cut them in 1/2 after they thawed. It just seemed so much easier than chopping into a whole loaf. Made the rolls ahead in the morning and assembled the rest right before the Superbowl. They made such cute little munchies for the game. Read More
