Easy Family Recipes: Sweet Bacon Smokies

Sweet Bacon SmokiesThis weekend is all about football...and snacks! If you're anything like me, you know it's all about the nibbles and noshes that go with a big football snack spread, and barely pay any attention to the game. These sweet and easy little sausages will get everyone hyped -- essentially, pig wrapped in more pig...woo hoo! They get their touch of sweetness from apple butter and will easily be the first thing to disappear from the snack table. Go team!

Sweet Bacon Smokies

  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 package little smokies (little sausage or hot dogs)
  • 1 cup Musselman's Apple Butter

Heat oven to 350 F. Place parchment paper on jelly roll pan or other edged baking pan.

Cut bacon strips into thirds. Wrap each strip of bacon around a smokie, piercing with toothpick to hold bacon in place. Place smokies on pan.

Baste each smokie with generous amount of apple butter.

Bake 20 minutes. Remove and flip each smokie. Baste again with apple butter.

Reduce heat to 250 F and bake another 20 minutes until bacon is cooked to desired doneness. Make sure apple butter doesn't burn.

Transfer smokies to slow cooker on low heat to keep warm for serving.
