Brown Sugar Smokies

There was some tasty food at dad’s birthday dinner, and not all of it was made by me.  Thank goodness many capable hands pitched in to help, one of which was my daughter-in-law, Emma, who contributed a batch of Brown Sugar Smokies.  These are really good.  I had to claw my way to the tray to grab one before they were inhaled by the guests.
Here is Emma standing by the little convection oven waiting for her creation to be ready to serve.

The basic recipe is below, but Emma makes these extra special by tweaking the original in the following ways:

1. Use Farmland Maple Bacon.

2. Cut the bacon, dip it in the brown sugar, and then wrap it around the smokies.

3. Secure them with toothpicks, and place into a large bowl.

4. Drizzle with maple syrup.

5. Sprinkle them with brown sugar before placing into the oven, and then again about halfway through cooking.

Brown Sugar Smokies

1 pound bacon
1 (16-ounce) package little smokie sausages
1 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cut bacon into thirds and wrap each strip around a little sausage. Secure the wrapped sausages on wooden toothpicks, arrange on a baking sheet, and sprinkle them liberally with brown sugar.

Bake until bacon is crisp and the brown sugar melted (about 30 minutes).
