Brown Sugar Smokies
OMG... OUTSTANDING!!! I just made these as an appetizer for Christmas at my brother's. Because of so much to do, I decided to make them ahead of time. I read some of the reviews and this is what I did. I did buy the center cut bacon, as some suggested. I then took a long plastic bowl with the brown sugar and then added the smokies and cut bacon pieces. I couldn't find my broiler pan, so I put foil on a sided cookie sheet sprayed with Pam. I dredged the bacon pieces through the sugar and then rolled it around the smokie. I didn't use a toothpick or skewers, as some said that the bacon stayed put. I then sprinkled more brown sugar on top. I baked them for about 40 mins. and then tasted!!! Oh my... I could eat the entire pan and I am not a huge fan of hot dogs!!!
Since there was a good amount of grease on the cookie sheet, I transferred the cooked smokies to a large corning ware dish (one that has the carrier and heat pack when you are taking it somewhere). This way, I can layer them and keep them in the frige and just heat them at my brothers on Christmas. Once I transferred them to the corningware dish, I also sprinkled some more brown sugar on them. Figure it will melt when I heat them. This is my first time making them and definitely won't be my last. They are a little time-consuming, but worth every bite!!!! Thanks!!
