No, I did not know the Superbowl was this coming Sunday until I heard someone behind me talking about it at the hockey game. And everyone starting posting Superbowl food on their blogs and Pinterest. That was kind of a not-so-subtle hint.
So, you might think I took some initiative and made these delicious bacon-wrapped brown sugar smokies to post on here especially for the Superbowl. Suuureee I did! Except they might have been made a few days post-Christmas and I just never got around to putting them on here. You decide.
On another note, I am really, really sorry that I have not been responding to any comments. I promise that I am reading them! As I’m sure you have heard from me a bajillion times before, my life is pretty hectic right now. Whoever said last semester senior year is the easiest is a flat-out liar. I feel like this is the busiest I have ever been.
It does not help that there are all these TV shows that I want to watch instead of doing homework. Well, there are plenty of things I would rather do than homework.
Like eat these sweet and savory smokies. That’s not a bad idea!
brown sugar bacon-wrapped smokies
Makes 1 pound
16 oz. smokies
about 12 oz. bacon, cut into thirds
¾ cup brown sugar
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and do it well. If you don’t, you’ll have a not-so-fun pan to clean… if you can get it clean!
Take a smokie, wrap it in a piece of bacon, and stick a toothpick in it to hold in place. Place on prepared pan. Repeat until all smokies are wrapped. Sprinkle with brown sugar and toss until even coated.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Place pan in preheated oven. Bake for 50 minutes, until bacon is slightly crisp and sugar is bubbling.
