Bacon-Wrapped Li'l Smokies in a Maple - Brown Sugar Glaze

1 lb Li'l Smokies
12 oz center-cut bacon (I use Kunzler's honey cured center cut bacon)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup ( the real stuff!)
1 TBSP Dijon mustard

Empty the Smokies onto some paper towels and blot them dry. Dry Smokies will allow the bacon to adhere better.

Cut the bacon into thirds. You can put the bacon in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Line a cookie sheet pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil.

Make the glaze by whisking together the brown sugar, maple syrup, mustard.  Whisk the mixture well to ensure that the larger pieces of brown sugar have broken up.

Wrap a piece of bacon around each Smokie, pressing firmly on the final edge of the bacon to better ensure it does not spring open during baking. Try not to stretch the bacon when wrapping the sausages.

Place the bacon-wrapped Smokies onto the foil-lined sheet pan, seam-side down. Continue with the rest of the bacon and Smokies.

Using a spoon, put a little bit of the thick glaze on top of each bacon-wrapped Smokie trying to coat each one evenly. You should have just enough glaze to do the entire batch.

Bake the Smokies for about 35-45 minutes or until they are lightly brown on top, and the bacon is crispy.

Immediately transfer the Smokies to a serving plate or a crockpot set on low to keep warm.

I usually do 3 batches of these for parties.

Must be an American thing?

Is it a sausage, or more like a frankfurt?

Sorry I did not realize you were not in the USA.

It is like a small sausage that is smoked, but not like an American breakfast sausage (if that helps at all??!!)...more like a hot dog I guess but much much smaller.

Thanks for that. I get curious about foods I see people using that are specific to a country or region.

It's nice to be important, but more important to be nice.

These look delicious. I was also confused with the name "smokies" but as soon as you said cocktail weenies I got it! Bacon wrapped anything can't be bad - I'll definitely be trying these soon Smiley
