Baked Bacon Wrapped Brown Sugar Smokies – Recipe

Bacon Bacon Sausage

A slight tweak to pigs in a blanket by adding brown sugar and some cinnamon sugar.  Add this treat to your upcoming new year’s party.


  • 1 package of bacon (thin bacon works better to make them crispy)
  • 1 package of sausages (or hot dogs)
  • Some brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Open the packages of bacon and cut the whole slab into thirds across the bacon pieces. I usually cut them straight out of the refrigerator while they’re cold, then allow them to warm a bit before wrapping the Smokies – the bacon is more pliable when not very cold, and makes it easier to work with awkwardly-shaped pieces.
  3. To make assembly even easier, line up pieces of bacon on your cutting board or a clean counter. Wrap each Lit’l Smokie in a 1/3-cut piece of bacon, then secure with a toothpick.
  4. Lay wrapped Smokies on a sheet pan. Tilting the toothpick downward makes lining them up a bit easier. (If you are making a double or triple batch with a Costco-sized 3-pound package of Smokies, continue wrapping until you run of room on your sheet pan, and then – just to make the overall assembly easier – can continue wrapping until you run out of the Smokies and simply put them in a bowl until you can lay them out on another sheet pan later or when your first one is out of the oven. If you run out of bacon before Smokies, you can cut some strips of bacon lengthwise to make additional slices so that you’ll have enough.).
  5. Sprinkle about 1/4 teaspoon of brown sugar on each Smokie – I simply sprinkle by hand.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes
  7. Take out and serve
