Little smokies are the first cousin to hot dogs and, therefore, are guaranteed to be yummy. Add brown sugar and bacon and watch how quickly these disappear at your next gathering.
Why These Are Winners
For something so small, it packs a mighty punch. They are the right combination of sweet and savory. Plus I am convinced that foods just taste better on a stick, which is why I add toothpicks when they’re done. They make a great snack for game day or really any party that needs finger food. All of that with just three ingredients. Winning!
What You’ll Need
Little Smokies – These bite-sized sausages are the star of the show.
Bacon – This is where the big punch of flavor comes into play and adds the salty flavor.
Brown Sugar – This is where just the right kiss of sweetness comes in. It balances the other flavors.
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut each strip of bacon into thirds.
Tightly wrap one piece of cut bacon around one little smokie. Place seam down in a glass 13×9 dish.
Repeat with remaining little smokies.
Sprinkle with brown sugar, being sure to cover each.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until bacon is crisp and sugar is caramelized.
