Little Smokies with Bacon

Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies with Brown Sugar

This next appetizer is one that was introduced to us years ago by my sister-in-law, Kristi. I remember having them for the first time and thinking that they were beyond delicious. If I remember correctly I had about 10 of them. They are just that good! Since then we have made these Bacon Wrapped Smokies (aka Brown Sugar Smokies) for almost every big family get together. We actually had them at our Annual White Elephant Exchange last week and they were the first thing gone. Our whole family has become addicted!

Each weenie is wrapped in a piece of bacon, sprinkled with brown sugar, and slowly baked to a perfectly caramelized, savory bite of heaven. Not only are these little smokies wrapped in bacon delicious, but they’re simple! Just THREE ingredients are needed for this amazing appetizer – smokies, brown sugar, and bacon (all yummy!) Usually whenever appetizers are being made, parties are being thrown. So it’s nice to have an easy appetizer that is quick and perfect for these get togethers!

Bacon Brown Sugar Smokies

How to Make Bacon Wrapped Weenies:

What is it about the flavor combo of brown sugar and bacon that is so incredibly delicious? I don’t know, but what I do know is that this one of the easiest brown sugar and bacon recipes you will ever find. Only three ingredients (talk about simple!) plus only 5 minutes of prep time. All you have to do is:

  1. Wrap each smokie with a piece of bacon. Secure bacon in place with a toothpick.
  2. Place smokies on a baking sheet lined with foil.
  3. Sprinkle brown sugar over the smokies.
  4. Bake for 30-40 minutes.

I’m thinking these smokies will be perfect for New Years with the rest of the appetizers we’ll be chowing down that night before the New Years Resolutions start. If you haven’t had these bad boys before, I highly recommend them. I think you’ll find they’re quite amazing. 😉

  1. Well I’m convinced I need to try these! We always have snack night for dinner around the holidays and being the bacon loving family that we are, I suspect these we be the first thing to get eaten!

  2. A winter holiday gathering is not the same without these little meat candy pops. They are a labor of love.
    I bake them on a disposable broiler pan at 375 for 25 minutes. Using a baster to remove the fat and melted sugar, I then reapply the melted sugar and bake again for another 25 minutes. Repeat this process a few times until most of the fat is rendered off and you are left with a deliciously gooey meat candy.

  3. Plan on taking this to a potluck party, They will sit out about 2 hrs by the time i make them and arrive. can they be eaten cold. Or is this a bad idea. plz help

    1. They definitely taste better warm. You could keep them in a crock pot on the warm setting, so they don’t get cold or a low setting. Hope that helps!! They’ll be a hit!

  4. I had these at a party a couple of years ago and yes they are just that good. I have not been able to get them out of mind since. I have bought everything and will be making them for Christmas! I am so excited.
