Something I have found that helps with cleanup with this recipe is that I line the pan with foil. There is much grease from the smokies and it is much easier to dump the foil after baking the smokies!! My family and friends love this snack!!! :)
The problem I had with this recipe was the brown sugar melted and began to caramelize before the bacon was done. The brown sugar was over cooked by the time the bacon was brown. The next time I cook them I'll cook half way then springle with the brown sugar.
Awesome for a pot luck, always a crowd pleaser. Thick bacon takes forever to cook and smokies start to get almost burnt so I use regular slice bacon. I toss the wrapped smokies in a bowl with brown sugar then sprinkle what is left over the smokies. Foil line the pan (for quick clean-up) and cook on a cookie rack over the pan. To keep warm, toss them in the crock pot on warm setting.
You can't go wrong with bacon! I omitted the brown sugar entirely (I don't care for sweet foods). If I were to make again, I think I would rotate the pan halfway through to ensure even cooking - some of the bacon ended up super crispy and some of it need to cook longer.
I make these several times a year for my family and for extened family get-togethers. They are the first to go! The only thing I do differently is to bake them slow at 300 for an hour and a half until all the brown sugar is melted. Using basting syringe to draw off some of the bacon grease helps make these a bit more appetizing.
