Sweet…Savory…Salty…all rolled into one lovely bite! Another perfect offering for your party guests. Definitely adding this recipe for Bacon Wrapped Smokies to my Super Bowl Party blog. Check out it out for some incredible ideas on what to serve for game day. I saw a few recipes on Pinterest for these and want to give someone the credit for creating, but there were quite a few. So, whoever had the genius to invent these. Kudos to you! I did, however, use my own seasoning combination.

You can prep these ahead of time and bake just before game time. They are relatively simple to make with virtually no cleanup. They can even be served at room temperature. Hell, I just ate one out of the fridge! You will need toothpicks. So go grab a package or two of Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies and let’s get wrapping!

Feel free to alter the heat level. I used chili powder, but you can also add in a bit of cayenne if that’s your jam. I just love the smokiness from the sausages and the bacon paired with the chili powder and cracked black pepper. Oh, and the brown sugar, the perfect marriage.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Remove the smokies from the package. Rinse and pat dry. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Cut the bacon strips just long enough to wrap around the sausage. Wrap the bacon strips around each sausage and secure with toothpicks.

In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, chili powder and cracked black pepper. Mix well. Sprinkle about half or more of the mixture on top of the bacon wrapped sausages.

Place pan in oven. Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the bottom of each is browned. Flip. Apply another coat of the brown sugar mixture to the top of each bacon wrapped smokie. Continue baking until the bacon is fully-cooked, crispy and the entire surface is nice and caramelized.

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
