There are times when I need to make a super easy party appetizer that tastes really good. Bacon-Wrapped Cocktail Smokies always gets rave reviews.
My church hosted a bridal shower recently and I made Pecan Sandies Banana Pudding and Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Smokies. Both of these are simple to put together and disappear quickly.
I learned a long time ago that recipes don’t have to be complicated to be delicious. Whenever I’m running short on time or just want to make something simple and tasty, I turn to this recipe.
When I make Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Smokies, I always wrap the wieners in the bacon early in the day. That way I can pop them in the oven 20-25 minutes before serving so they’ll be nice and hot and crispy.
Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Smokies
I usually buy Lit’l Smokies, but my grocery store happened to be out of them so I grabbed a different brand. Since this shower is pretty big, I doubled the recipe so I bought two packs of thick-cut bacon and two packs of cocktail smokies. There was a whole lot of wrapping going on!
Cut the slab of thick-cut bacon into 4 pieces. Make sure you cut all the way through. Check out how I keep my kitchen knives sharp.
Wrap a piece of bacon around each cocktail wiener. Secure with a toothpick. Place on a foil-lined baking pan. At this point, you can refrigerate the bacon-wrapped cocktail smokies (for a few hours) until ready to bake them.
Sprinkle one cup brown sugar evenly over the Smokies. Bake at 400º F. for 20-25 minutes or until the bacon is crispy.
