Brown Sugar Smokies
- 1 pound thin-sliced bacon
- 16-ounce package of little smokie sausages
- 1 cup brown sugar, or to taste
Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F. While the oven is heating, cut the bacon into thirds. Wrap each third of a bacon strip around a little smokie sausage. Once wrapped, place each bacon-wrapped sausage on a wooden toothpick. Arrange these items on a greased, foil-lined jelly-roll pan or baking sheet.
Now comes the sweet part. Sprinkle the wrapped sausages liberally with brown sugar, ensuring each piece gets a good coating. This brown sugar will melt as it bakes, creating a sweet and sticky glaze that perfectly complements the smoky sausages and crispy bacon.
Bake your skewers in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and the brown sugar has melted into a tantalizing glaze. If the bacon isn’t as crispy as you’d like, don’t hesitate to broil the skewers for a few extra minutes. Once done, let them cool slightly before serving. These Brown Sugar Smokies are best enjoyed warm, so dig in and savor the sweet and savory goodness. Serves 2 to 12.
