If you have never given bacon wrapped smokies a try, you are in for a treat. They might not look good at first glance, but if you have any meat loving men in your life, these are a great appetizer for a party like an upcoming Super Bowl party. They will keep coming back for more.
To make these bacon wrapped smokies you will only need three ingredients:
1 (16 oz.) pkg. Lil’ Smokies
1 package thick cut bacon (we liked peppered bacon)
3/4 c. brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
While the oven is heating up, cut each slice of bacon into three pieces. Wrap each piece of bacon around a smokie and secure in place with a toothpick.
Place all the bacon wrapped smokies in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top and bake until the brown sugar is completely melted and the bacon is browned.
Crock Pot Method
To cook these in a crock pot you’ll need a little more brown sugar. Place 1 cup brown sugar in the bottom of your crock pot. Place the bacon-wrapped smokies on top of the brown sugar. Sprinkle an additional 3/4 cup brown sugar on top. Cook on high 3 to 4 hours, or until bacon is completely cooked.
