Recipe by M and M Mama

These are GREAT finger foods that are hard to stop eating. Just a little advanced prep and they are good to go! My husband loves them. This is his cousins newest addition to the family cookbook. Thanks Nic!

Wow! These were a hit at my christmas party, especially with the kids. And instead of putting the bacon in with the brown sugar and in a bag, once i got the bacon rolled onto the smokies i just covered the top with the brown sugar. Tasted just as good!! 3 People from the CParty asked me the next day for the recipe!!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb Little Smokies sausage
  • 1 lb bacon (cut into thirds)
  • 34 cup brown sugar
  • toothpick


  1. Cut bacon into thirds.
  2. Place bacon and brown sugar into plastic freezer bag and allow to sit overnight in the fridge.(I massage it a few times to make sure that each piece of bacon gets fully coated.)
  3. Wrap each lil smokie with a brown sugar coated piece of bacon and insert toothpick to hold bacon in place.
  4. Place each lil smokie on foil lined baking sheet (THIS IS A MUST!), broil on the top rack for 3-5 mins, then flip each lil smokie for another 2-3 minutes more. Make sure bacon is cooked and should start to crisp.
  5. Stand back and watch them disappear.
