  • 1 14 Ounce Package Smoked Lil Smokies
  • 15 Slices Bacon Uncooked, Cut Into Thirds
  • 3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 Teaspoons Dried Cayenne Powder


  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. (For an alternate cooking method try bacon wrapped smokies in air fryer)
  • Wrap each smokie with a bacon piece, overlapping ends, then securing with a toothpick.
  • Mix brown sugar and cayenne pepper in a shallow bowl then firmly press each smokie in mixture, coating generously.
  • Place in a single layer on prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until bacon is browned. Flip the sausages and continue to cook another 20-30 minutes or until bacon is browned on the second side.
  • Remove from oven, and serve.
    CAUTION: These little buggers will be HOT, in more ways than one, so a little cooldown period is advised.
