Nice idea, terrible recipe! The cooking times are all off. If you follow the times in the recipe you end up with limp bacon swimming in fat. The recipe is way too sweet and the result is almost “candied”. Thanks to a different review, I knew the cook times were off so I adjusted how I cooked.

Either try a different recipe or cook the wieners and bacon by themselves at 400 degrees until the bacon is crisp. Then pour off most of the bacon grease. You’ll end up with about 3/4 cup fat! Then melt the butter and brown sugar in a microwave, mix well and spoon a tablespoon or so over each. You likely won’t use all of the butter/brown sugar mix unless you want to end up with candy. Bake at 400 until bubbling throughout, about 10 minutes. If you cook too long you will end up with toffee.

Salty goodness from the bacon and sweetness from the brown sugar. The best of both worlds.


  • 1 pound Bacon, Cut Into Thirds
  • 1 pound Lil’ Smokies (small sausages)
  • 1 stick Butter
  • 2 cups Brown Sugar


Preheat oven to 375F.
Cut the bacon into thirds and wrap each smokie.(small sausage)
Place all the wrapped smokies in a single layer in a baking dish.
Then melt the stick of butter and then 1 cup of brown sugar and stir until mixed well.
Pour the butter and brown sugar mixture on the smokies and bacon.
Then take the other cup of brown sugar and sprinkle evenly over the smokies.
Bake them for about 15-20 minutes and then turn the heat up to 400F for about 5 minutes or longer until the bacon becomes crispy.
