Lil Smokies

My husband has been doing Fantasy Football stuff again. Already. That means only one season is almost here. (Sigh.) On a positive note, that means fun football parties with yummy food and cool weather are on the way! And nothing is better than an AMAZING appetizer that you can throw together quickly with only a few ingredients for one of these gatherings.

Meet the Brown Sugar Smokies! I promise you....just make them. You'll see. They'll be gone shortly after you put the plate down and people will be holding empty toothpicks demanding the recipe. I found this recipe online, and tweaked it to my liking.

Courtney's Brown Sugar Smokies
Approx. 3 cups Brown Sugar
1 package little Smokies (14 oz package)
1 pound of bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut strips of bacon into thirds. Coat a piece of bacon with sugar on both sides. Wrap around the Smokie and secure with a toothpick. Place on a foil covered baking sheet. Continue with each Smokie, placing about 1 inch apart. Pour remainder of sugar over the Smokies on the sheet. Bake until the bacon looks crisp and brown sugar is melted (about 25 mins.)

For a dipping sauce, mix mayo, chili sauce, and brown sugar (adjust portions to your taste.)

Not the healthiest recipe...but so good!


  1. saw this on pinterest. Can you serve with out dipping sauce?

  2. Absolutely! The sauce is just a little extra! :) Because it really needs more fat/calories.... :)
