Bacon-Wrapped Smokies with Brown Sugar

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.

If you're looking for a fun snack for a Game Day party or an appetizer for a holiday party, these Bacon-Wrapped Smokies are perfect! They have both a hint of sweet and a hint of salty...and who doesn't love bacon!

Who doesn’t love bacon?  I know I do!  Just about everything tastes better with bacon.  My dad always makes kale hash when he comes to visit us from out of town.  Sounds not that great, right?  Wrong…because he adds bacon to it!

Last year, my husband and I went to a Christmas party, and one of the hors d’oeuvres that I fell in love with were bacon-wrapped smokies with a brown sugar glaze.  I decided that I would make some for my family since they share my bacon obsession.

These Bacon-Wrapped Smokies are perfect as an hors d’oeuvre at a party or as a snack for your Game Day party. They are best when they are served fresh from the oven, but you can make them ahead of time and refrigerate or freeze them and then pop them into the oven for fresh snacks.  You can also put them into a slow cooker straight from the oven to keep them warm.

Jimmy-Dean-Bacon-Walmart

To make my own Bacon-Wrapped Smokies, first I went shopping at Walmart for some Jimmy Dean® Bacon. Jimmy Dean® makes two great premium bacon products – Jimmy Dean® Applewood Smoked Bacon and Jimmy Dean® Hickory Smoked Bacon. We ended up going with the Hickory Smoked Bacon for this recipe, but either would work great.

Bacon-Wrapped-Smokies-Ingredients

You just need 3 ingredients for this recipe – Jimmy Dean® Bacon, cocktail wieners, and brown sugar.  Be sure to line your baking pan with aluminum foil to make clean-up easy.

Bacon-Wrapped-Smokies-Process

I cut my “#JimmyDeanBacon into thirds while it was all together in a slab rather than cutting each piece individually just because it was easier.  Then, wrap each wiener with the bacon and secure with a toothpick.  You want some overlap, and don’t wrap the wieners too tightly.  Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes.  If you want crispier bacon, you can check how they look and increase the oven temperature for the last couple of minutes.

About the book:

In A Vote of Confidence, the stage is set for some intriguing insight into what it was like during 1915 to be a woman in a “man’s world.” Guinevere Arlington is a beautiful young woman determined to remain in charge of her own life. For seven years, Gwen has carved out a full life in the bustling town of Bethlehem Springs, Idaho, where she teaches piano and writes for the local newspaper. Her passion for the town, its people, and the surrounding land prompt Gwen to run for mayor. After all, who says a woman can’t do a man’s job? But stepping outside the boundaries of convention can get messy. A shady lawyer backs Gwen, believing he can control her once she’s in office. A wealthy newcomer throws his hat into the ring in an effort to overcome opposition to the health resort he’s building north of town. When the opponents fall in love, everything changes, forcing Gwen to face what she may have to lose in order to win.
