delicious little smokies

These are my husbands most favorite appetizer ever. At least I'm pretty sure of that. We first made them for our superbowl party back in January, and then had them again last night when some friends came over to check out some of our renovations.

I originally found the recipe on allrecipes.com, and have since modified the steps a tiny bit to my liking.

For your ingredients you will need a pound of little smokies, a pound of bacon and as much brown sugar as you would like. Also gather some tooth pics.

First soak your toothpicks in water so they don't catch on fire. Cut the bacon slices into thirds and lay them out on a flat surface (we used a cutting board). Then sprinkle brown sugar onto the bacon. Finally roll up the little smokie in the bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. We like to arrange our smokies on a broiling pan so that any grease and juices goes to the bottom, and doesn't make the bacon soggy. I also sprinkle a little more brown sugar over the smokies before sticking them in the oven, just for good measure :o). Bake the smokies for 20 minutes. Then switch your oven to broil and leave them in for another 3 to 5 minutes, until the bacon gets crispy.

We have used both a crock pot set to warm, and a chafing dish to keep the smokies warm throughout the party. At our superbowl party we made two pounds of smokies, and they were gone by half time. Hope you enjoy!
