I need to get off the kick of wrapping things in bacon. However, if loving bacon is wrong, I don't want to be right.
These little beauties are just as wonderful as the bacon wrapped crackers. They're perfect for a tailgating party, which is what I made them for on Saturday. If you are taking them to an actual game, I would make them the night before, wrap them in foil and then reheat them in their foil packet on the grill.
Bacon Wrapped Lil' Smokies
One package of little smokies sausages
One pound bacon
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and the cayenne pepper. Cut bacon into thirds. Place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet that has been lined with aluminum foil. Spray cooling wrack with non-stick cooking spray. Wrap bacon around the sausage. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture on top. Bake for 45 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
