Super Bowl Smoky Franks

While I do most of my shopping at local grocers or through the Oklahoma Food Coop, a few days ago I paid a visit to the Whole Foods in Oklahoma City. It’s definitely one of my favorite grocery destinations but it’s at least a half hour away.


My favorite thing to stock up on is Tessemae’s. This company is simply amazing. It’s a family business that makes delicious dressings, sauces and marinades from whole, all-natural ingredients. No sugar, dairy, gluten or anything you can’t pronounce. They’re Paleo and Vegan friendly! After grabbing a few bottles of Tessemae’s, I meandered back to the meat department to pick up a few items. I saw a package of Applegate’s cocktail franks and a lightbulb went off. I have seen the little smokies in BBQ sauce at countless parties but never thought about making a cleaner version. Until now that is, just in time for Super Bowl Sunday!



  • 2 packages  Applegate Farms “The Greatest Little Organic Uncured Smoky Cocktail Pork Frank”
  • 1 bottles Tessemae’s Matty’s BBQ sauce


  1. Follow pkg instructions for the smoky franks.
  2. Add bottle of Tessemae’s and heat through or throw them both in a crockpot if you want to keep them warm throughout your party.


I was going to plate mine up all fancy- like with toothpicks, but I’m out so here are my ‘clean’ paleo-friendly BBQ cocktail weiners on a plate.
