Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies


This is the BEST Bacon wrapped little smokies recipe I've had!


I feel almost wrong posting this “recipe” for bacon wrapped little smokies. For one thing it’s just basically mini hot dogs. I mean, pork or beef it’s literally just a hot dog. (I happen to love hot dogs by the way. Don’t knock them. ) And for another thing it’s just bacon, brown sugar and chili powder. That’s barely a recipe, but in case you’ve never had it I’m bringing it to the blog because as simple as they are they are also so yummy and addicting.

Stick a little platter of these babies in front of a bunch of people and the Superbowl or any other game and I guarantee they will be gone in seconds! And while everyone loves them my hot dog loving kiddos wont touch the mini hot dogs. What. The. Heck? What kid doesn’t like mini hot dogs?

Anyway, that’s not the point, the point is that you can totally bust these out and everyone will be dying to know the recipe without a clue that it’s just brown sugar and chili powder. Which is awesome. I love when people think I worked harder than I did.

    When we have the family over for Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner my husband always wants to serve little smokies heated in the crock pot with red current jelly & yellow mustard. It is a recipe from Sunset I believe. This beats it! He is going to love this recipe!
