Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Pigs in a Blanket

Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Pigs in a Blanket

This was a happy accident, so I thought I’d take a pic.

For Sunday school, I decided to make pigs in a blanket because as simple as they are, they always go within the first five minutes.  BUT, then I got a wild idea and placed a piece of brown sugar bacon around each little smokie.  Um…yes.  You have to try these!!

This recipe made about 24 little pigs in a blanket.

Shopping List
8 pieces of bacon
about ½ cup brown sugar or so
1 can of Crescent Rolls, do not bake, cut each triangle into thirds (you should have about 24)
1 package of Little Smokies (I use all beef)

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

I like to line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with Pam for easy clean up.

First, prepare your bacon.  Take each slice of bacon and cut it into thirds (so about 24 pieces).  Next, put your brown sugar in a bowl.  I like to work as an assembly line.  Take one little piece of bacon, sprinkle your brown sugar on it (it’s not going to completely stick, but just rub and sprinkle a little on both sides of each piece, and then the sugar will melt and coat the bacon when you pop it in the oven), then wrap that piece of bacon around a smokie and then wrap a piece of your crescent roll around the whole thing.  Place on baking sheet and repeat.

When you’re done, pop your baking sheet in the oven and bake about 15 minutes.

Remove and serve immediately!

A little sweet, a little salty and a whole of perfect for breakfast or an appetizer!

    I think the bacon looks kinda raw? Can it actually cook completely under the crescent rolls?

      It does! At that temp for that amount of time, it cooks up with the brown sugar.

    Hi Shay!

    Bacon wrapped smokies with brown sugar in the crockpot are my husband’s absolute favorite party appetizer to make (and eat!) and they are always a hit!
    I also wanted to direct you to a product you may love. I used to be an aluminum foil pan lining mama too…until I found these AMAZING pan liners! They are truly one of my most favorite products! I now get them for favorite things parties or housewarming gifts etc. Just throw one on the pan and you have a perfect fit. Everything EASILY wipes off of them they pay for themselves so quickly with the amount I am saving in aluminum foil! I bought the brand name first and didn’t like them as much as these bc these are top rack dishwasher safe (although I usually just wipe them down). I think you will love them!

    I also got the really large one this past Christmas and used it for my cinnamon rolls and sugar cookies and it was glorious! They peeled right off as opposed to my counter where I had a difficult time pulling them off each year.
