These little pieces of pork heaven are perfect for so many occasions: Christmas parties, tailgating, cookouts, potlucks, you name it! They taste like meat candy and will disappear in a hurry.

Tips for making Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies:

  • For extra sweetness, sprinkle on a little extra brown sugar before baking.
  • Use thin-cut bacon, not thick-cut.

  • If bacon is not getting crispy, broil it for a few minutes at the end.
  • Use any flavor of bacon you like, but I think maple-flavored is the best for this recipe.
  • Be sure to line your baking sheet with either aluminum foil or parchment paper. Or better yet, use disposable foil sheet pans. The brown sugar and bacon grease will make a really sticky mess that is hard to clean up.
  • Can be prepared the night before and popped in the oven a half hour before you want to serve them.
  • You can also make them a short while ahead of time and keep them warm in a crock pot. Just pour any juices on the baking pan into the crock pot and add either a little maple syrup or a little more browm sugar. Cover the crock pot and turn to warm or low.
  • To increase the spice level, double the amount of cayenne pepper.
