  1. This is nice for a party, and a little cooler than just cocktail dogs. The idea is that the guests scoop the appetizer onto their plate using a slotted spoon and then use toothpicks to make a mini-kabob with a hot dog, pepperoni slice, and a meatball. I guess you could be fancy and serve the kabobs already assembled, but I think it would be hard to keep them warm. mayness is right, it's nothing spectacular, but often it's the simple things that do really well on a buffet.
  2. My husband's uncle apparently makes this a lot, and hubby wanted me to try to find the recipe based on his vague descriptions, haha. Finally found it! It was good, nothing amazing, but I can see how it would be an easy thing to serve at a big party!


I have two boys Eddie 18 and Brandon 10. I have been with my hubby for 16 years. I work full time outside the home and my boys keep me busy at home. Eddie is a singer and base guitar player in a band and Brandon races go karts. We also have a Collie/Beagle mix named Sugar. I love to cook and try out new recipes. My family likes it too but at times ask my to make just "normal" food, as I forget sometimes to make my own TNT recipes. I cook a lot with with my crock pot as it makes life a lot easier for me. I am always on the look out for new crock pot recipes. I'm not much of a baker as I don't like to measure things. I collect cookbooks and recipes in general. I usually start with a recipe and tweak to my families liking. My Rating System: 5 Stars = The whole family enjoyed the dish and it will be added to my TNT cookbook. Book #220911. These recipes will be made again and again. 4 Stars = Recipe was good, but needed some modifications or it was good but not something we would want on a regular basis. Also goes into my TNT-4 star recipe cookbook. Book #220912 3 Stars = It was edible, but won't be made again. 2 Stars = Needs some kind of major adjustments. 1 Stars = Inedible, didn't work, waste of ingredients.
