These Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies take a favorite party appetizer to a whole new level.
Little Smokies, miniature sausages, have long been a favorite party appetizer. Throughout my life they’ve been present at almost all gatherings, including every holiday party and New Year’s Eve. While Little Smokies themselves make a delicious appetizer, I like to upgrade them a bit, as I did with these Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies.
Party appetizers can sometimes be difficult, especially when serving a big group. A lot of party appetizers require a lot of prep work that’s difficult to prepare when there’s a lot of people or ingredients that party guests may not be too familiar with.
These Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies eliminate both of those problems. There are only 2 ingredients and they’re so easy to prepare that you can make a large batch with no problem. Even better, little smokies are an appetizer everyone likely already enjoys, so you know everyone will love this upgraded version.
I like to serve this Little Smokies on a tray with toothpicks in each one. The toothpicks help the bacon stay in place and make it easier for guests to grab a few.
How To Make Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies:
Step 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Step 2. Cut each piece of bacon into 4 thin slices.
Step 3. Wrap each little smokie in the bacon and place on a baking sheet.
Step 4. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
Step 5. Serve warm.
What variations can I make to this party appetizer?
I used regular little smokies to make this party appetizer. However, they do make several varieties and you could use any of them, as long as the carb content is appropriate. Personally, I think the cheddar version would be delicious in this bacon wrapped little smokies.
Can I store these little smokies?
Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies are best straight out of the oven, even as they begin to cool off. If you have leftovers, you can store them in the fridge and reheat in the oven or microwave, though the bacon texture will change. However, I find that there are rarely any leftovers!
How should I serve Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies?
As mentioned above, I prefer to serve these on a platter or tray with toothpicks in each one for easy grabbing and snacking. They are best when served warm.
