- 1 pound (450g) little smokies sausages
- 1 pound (450g) bacon slices, cut into halves
- 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar, packed
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and place a wire rack on top. This will help to drain excess fat while baking.
In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, smoked paprika, and garlic powder until well combined. This creates a sweet and savory seasoning for the bacon-wrapped little smokies.
Take each little smokie sausage and wrap it with a half slice of bacon. Secure the bacon in place by inserting a toothpick through the end of the bacon and the smokie. Repeat this process for all the little smokies.
Once all the little smokies are wrapped in bacon, arrange them in a single layer on the wire rack on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the bacon-wrapped little smokies, making sure each one is coated with the seasoning.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the bacon is crispy and browned, and the little smokies are heated through.
Once done, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the bacon-wrapped little smokies cool for a few minutes before serving.
Transfer the bacon-wrapped little smokies to a serving platter and serve them warm as an appetizer or snack. Enjoy your deliciously savory and sweet Bacon-Wrapped Little Smokies!
