Snacky Sunday- Bacon Wrapped Kielbasa with Brown Sugar Glaze and Pizza biscuits

We took down and put away Christmas this morning, and ended up eating a late breakfast.   Last Pats game of the regular season today, and I thought I'd make some things that would be easy to snack on in front of the tv.

These go together quick if you do them assembly line style, and it's a good payoff in the end.   Sticky, meaty, sweet deliciousness.    I make sure to do the clean up right away before everything hardens.

Baked Gingerbread Mini Donuts

It's beginning to look a lot like DONUTS!  :)   Struggling a bit with my Christmas spirit this year.   I decided to play some cheerful music and bake a nice treat for breakfast.   I knew I wanted donuts, but I couldn't decide on a flavor- eggnog?  peppermint?  Nope, I wanted gingerbread and I had these on my donut Pinterest board from Pinch of Yum.

No changes to this one, except that I cannot remember adding the maple syrup.  The minute I stepped into the kitchen, I was swarmed with people needing answers to urgent questions that apparently I only possess the answer to.   I know I did, the lid was off and I had a measuring spoon with remnants in it, but whether I added it to the batter or the glaze, I have no idea.    

I let the kid go a little nuts with the sprinkles.   And they turned out delicious.  It's the holidays, and calories don't count til January, right?     Thank you so much to Lindsay at Pinch of Yum for the recipe, and for helping my Grinchy heart grow …
