Bacon Wrapped Smokies!

 
 
 
These "Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies" are delicious little bites of pork wrapped in pork, sprinkled with sugar!  How could they not be good!   This is an easy  party food that would be great  on your Super Bowl menu or for any other type of gathering where finger foods are served!   These go over a lot like the little 'Pigs in the Blanket', no matter how many I make, there are never any left over!   They are a bit addictive!   Here is what you will need for these: 
 
4 Tbs. butter, melted
2 cups brown sugar, divided
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
dash of hot sauce (optional)
1 lb. bacon, slices cut in thirds
1lb. package Little Smokies sausages (you can use all beef if you prefer)
 
Preheat oven to 375.
 
In a bowl, mix the melted butter, 1 cup of the brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce (if you are using it).
 
Cut each slice of bacon in thirds and wrap a piece around each sausage.  You can secure with a toothpick, but you don't have to.  It does make them easy to serve at a party, if you are serving finger foods!
 
 Place on a foil lined cookie sheet or 9"x13" baking pan.  I like to use Reynold's nonstick foil for this, because it's sort of sticky.
 
Pour the brown sugar and butter mixture over all.   Sprinkle the top of each one with the rest of the other cup of dry brown sugar. 
 
Place in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes or until the bacon is starting to crisp.  
 
 
Spoon some of the sauce back up over each one before placing them on a serving plate!
