baked bacon wrapped brown sugar smokies


i've seen other recipes for these little indulgent treats, but they cook them in a crockpot and i prefer to bake ours. baking them in the oven allows the bacon to crisp, the liquids to be released from the smokies, and the brown sugar to caramelize on them deliciously. it also allows to you control the fat content of them a bit more easily, as most of the bacon drippings will remain on the sheet pan after cooking. we usually make them during the holidays, but they're good for all year 'round, of course. so easy to make!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees f
  2. Open the packages of bacon and cut the whole slab into thirds across the bacon pieces
  3. "i usually cut them straight out of the refrigerator while theyre cold
  4. Then allow them to warm a bit before wrapping the smokies - the bacon is more pliable when not very cold
  5. And makes it easier to work with awkwardly-shaped pieces"
  6. To make assembly even easier
  7. Line up pieces of bacon on your cutting board or a clean counter
  8. "wrap each litl smokie in a 1 / 3-cut piece of bacon
  9. Then secure with a toothpick"
  10. Lay wrapped smokies on a sheet pan
  11. Tilting the toothpick downward makes lining them up a bit easier
  12. Sprinkle about 1 / 4 teaspoon of brown sugar on each smokie - i simply sprinkle by hand
  13. Bake in preheated 350 degree f oven for 45 minutes
  14. "using tongs
  15. Transfer the treats to a platter or plate
  16. Arrange attractively
  17. Put them out for your guests
  18. And stand back before you get trampled in the crowds rush to get at them"
  19. :)
  20. Although best if served immediately
  21. I bake them all up
  22. Then freeze them and thaw and reheat in the oven to serve
  23. "the bacon and brown sugar doesnt stay as crispy that way
  24. But since most parties will have a varying number of attendees we find its easier to make large batches during the holidays"
  25. Before reheating
  26. You can sprinkle a bit more brown sugar over them to make up for any that fell off
  27. )
  28. Optional: before putting the brown sugar over
  29. You can also sprinkle the smokies with a small amount of cinnamon sugar
  30. For even more flavor !
