Sweet Bacon Smokies

Most men I know (and quite a few women) would not argue the fact that you can't go wrong with wrapping almost anything in bacon!  My sister recently had her second annual Harn Family Christmas Open House and these succelent little treats made an appearance again.  I'm now hooked on these for a perfect party appetizer.

They are super easy as there are only 3 ingredients - little smokies, bacon, and brown sugar.  It may sound like an odd combination but the brown sugar perfectly balances the saltiness and smokiness of the bacon and sausage.  They can be prepped the night before making them a very convenient addition to your holiday party spread. 


1 16 oz. package little smoky sausages
1 16 oz. package of bacon
1 1/2 cups brown sugar, divided


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (if preparing sausages the night before, do this right before step 3).

2. Slice bacon strips into thirds and wrap each sausage with a 1/3 strip securing with a toothpick.  Place sausages into large plastic bag and coat with 1 cup brown sugar. 

3. As these will drip when cooking, try to use a broiler pan or rack as opposed to a baking sheet.  Either way, arrange the sausages over pan covered with foil.  Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar.  Bake for 20-30 minutes or until golden and cripsy.  You may want to up the oven temperate to 400 degrees F in the last 5-10 minutes of cooking if you want them extra crispy. 

I guarantee there won't be ANY left at the end of the party! 
If you don't believe me, ask any one of Jessie's guests!  You can't make too many!


  1. Looks great! I'm going to try these. I'll let you know how it goes!

  2. I made these & they were so easy & even more delicious! You were right, not a single one was left at the end of the night! Thanks for a great & easy idea!

  3. Great!! Soon I'll have a site where you can store all of these recipes!
