• Bacon Wrapped Smokies – YUM!

     I’ve wanted to try this idea for a long time, and New Years gave me the perfect opportunity!  There is not really a recipe for the idea, but below is what I tried, and everyone loved it. Of course, the amount of ingredients you will need will vary with how many Smokies you want to prepare.

    BACON WRAPPED SMOKIES

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    I tried making the “sauce” for these two different ways, and the reviews were about equal when I asked people to pick their favorite.

    On both batches, I simply wrapped (with a half piece of thin bacon) enough Smokies to fill a casserole pan.

    For one pan, I made the traditional ham glaze: brown sugar, mustard, and a few drops of Worchester Sauce. I just stirred these ingredients together and poured over the wrapped Smokies.

    For the other batch, I stirred together brown sugar and a small amount of soft butter and dropped it over the wrapped Smokies. Both methods create a decadent treat!

    The one thing that I might suggest when making this recipe is that you bake the wrapped Smokies until the bacon is about 1/2 done. Remove from oven and drain excess grease from the pan. THEN cover with sauce and bake until the bacon is completely done.
