I may be slightly addicted to Lil’ Smokies. They are so delicious and tiny that it’s REALLY hard for me not to eat 20 of them!! Please tell me I’m not the only one who feels like this. 😉

One of my all-time favorite appetizers are the Brown Sugar Smokies that my sister-in-law introduced us to when she joined our family 12 or so years ago. We will be forever grateful because those Lil’ Smokies are just so darn good and are a staple at our New Years Eve celebration each year now. The recipe I’m sharing with you today will become a new party staple because they are so delicious and easy to make. These Brown Sugar Beanie Weenies literally take about 2 minutes to throw together and can be thrown in the oven resulting in a very simple and delicious appetizer.

I’ve mentioned this in the past but my family always makes appetizers for New Year’s Eve. It’s one of our favorite traditions, and you better believe we’ll be making these in a few weeks – they’re just so easy!

No, you’re not the only one who can eat 20 (or more) of these little guys. This recipe sounds really good, but I was wondering why you call them Beanie Weenies when there are no beans involved.

    Lil' Luna

    Beanie Weenies are a nickname for Lil’ Smokies. I’ve heard them called that since I was little. 😉

      Elisa

      Funny. I’ve never heard them called that. To me beanie weenies are hot dogs with either baked beans or pork and beans. Maybe a regional thing.

        Lil' Luna

        It could be!! I’m sure most would call them Brown Sugar Lil’ Smokies. 🙂

    Cheryl

    I was wondering the same thing. Would be great with some beans!

Tiffaney

On the instructions for the recipe what does baste mean …im lost on what to do for that part….?? Help lol

    Steve

    Baste means to brush with the au jus (the juice). In this case the melted brown sugar and the pineapple juice in the pan.

Letty

Can you make these in a crockpot?

    Lil' Luna

    Yes, you can. I haven’t done that yet, but I think these would be a great recipe for the crockpot. Let me know how they taste!!
