Bacon-Wrapped Smokies Recipe 📜

Ingredients:

  • 1 package (about 1 lb) Cocktail smokies or little sausages 🌭
  • 1 pound Thin-cut bacon slices 🥓
  • 1 cup Brown sugar, packed 🌰
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter, melted 🧈
  • Toothpicks, for securing the bacon

Instructions:

1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

2. Prepare the Smokies:

  • If the cocktail smokies are not pre-cooked, it’s recommended to parboil them for about 5 minutes. This ensures they cook evenly when wrapped in bacon.

3. Wrapping with Bacon:

  • Cut the bacon slices into halves or thirds, depending on the size of the smokies. Wrap each smokie with a slice of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.

4. Brown Sugar Coating:

  • In a bowl, combine the brown sugar and melted butter. Mix well until you have a smooth and caramel-like consistency.

5. Coat with Sweetness:

  • Roll each bacon-wrapped smokie in the brown sugar and butter mixture, ensuring it’s generously coated.

6. Arrange on Baking Sheet:

  • Place the coated smokies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Make sure they are not touching to allow even cooking.

7. Bake to Perfection:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the sugar has caramelized.

8. Cool Slightly:

  • Allow the bacon-wrapped smokies to cool slightly before serving. The caramelized sugar will be hot, so exercise caution.

9. Serve and Enjoy:

  • Arrange these irresistible bites on a serving platter. Watch them disappear as your guests savor the perfect balance of sweet and savory flavors.
