I knew the casserole style crock pot would work great for the smokies. If you have extras, you can double up, but when they are all lined up in the crock, they are cooked evenly.
Bring the kids in the kitchen to help out! Kids can get help wrap the smokies. I use a whole pound of bacon, cut the strips into thirds.
You don't have to use toothpicks, but if you do, don't use the colored ones. The dye from the colored toothpicks cooks off on the bacon. Place the bacon wrapped smokies in the crock pot, seam side down.
If you have a casserole crock pot, that is why I recommend using one. If have used other crock pots, and they work fine as well. Smokies will cook if you have to layer them, cook as much as you need, they will go fast.
After the smokies are wrapped, add the brown sugar. Make sure the smokies are covered. The brown sugar cooks down to make a great syrup for the smokies.
Crock Pot Bacon Wrapped Smokies
1 pound bacon
1 large package little sausage smokies
1 cup brown sugar
- Spray casserole crock pot with Pam
- Cut one pound of bacon. Cut the strips into thirds.
- Wrap the lil smokies with a ⅓ of the strip. Place the smokies in the crock pot, seam side down.
- Cover all smokies with brown sugar. Use up to one cup of brown sugar, or until completely covered.
- Cook on high for 2 - 2.5 hours.
Cook in the crock pot for 2 - 2.5 hours. Watch this closely, you don't want the smokies to start falling apart. This also works great in the oven. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil for easy clean up!
