My aunt made these all the time when I was a kid so when I found this recipe I had to try it. They were tangy and sweet just like hers.

Very quick and easy tasty snack. Took them to a recent snack food potluck and they were a hit! I reccomend using foil underneath for easy cleanup and check them often as the brown sugar burns easily.

I will definitely be making these again. But I think next time I will be watching them more closely. You have to watch them because of the sugar. It will burn real fast if you don't watch it. But they were such a hit with the family I will have to make these again soon.

Make this easy! Cut the bacon into thirds, wrap each with a sausage..BUT use a silpat on the bottom of your pan. If you don't have silpat, use foil. Only sprinkle brown sugar over the top of each one before you bake them. Just cook until you see the bacon has browned. If the bacon starts to brown too quickly on top, turn the heat down to 375. Enjoy!

We LOVE these! I make these for many of our parties and gatherings through out the year. The only thing I do just a little different is to drizzle just a little bit of pure maple syrup over the top of the smokies at the very end of cooking and I keep them warm in a slow cooker on the warm setting.

I am giving this recipe a 5-star rating but with the noted changes I have made based on the previous reviews. First I added 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to the brown sugar. This resulted in a sweet heat combination which everyone loved. Secondly I made two batches but on both I speared the sausages individually and they were placed on the pan without touching each other. I think this is important for baking purposes to ensure the bacon gets crisp. The first batch I made I prepped hours prior to baking-only used about 3/4 of the brown sugar mix and placed them on a baking sheet lined with layers of paper towels. I transferred these to a baking sheet lined with foil and sprayed with non stick cooking spray. I topped them off with the remainder of the brown sugar/cayenne pepper mixture. The second batch I prepped and baked right away-but I did spray the foil with non cooking spray first and again I kept a small amount of space between all the wrapped sausages. I also reduced the temp to 375 degrees and I only baked them for 30 minutes. After baking for the 30 minutes I put them under a very hot broiler for about 2 minutes which crisped up the bacon and the sausages were perfect. I made a dip using 1/4 cup each mayonnaise and chili garlic sauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/8 tsp black pepper. I made the dip hours ahead and stored in the refrigerator until almost serving time. Just prior to serving I added 1 T of freshly chopped chives. The Smoky bacon wraps were gone in minutes.
