The Rest Of The Bacon: Brown Sugar Smokies

Since I still had bacon left after making the Bacon Wrapped Pork Loin, you can read about that here, I decided to make Brown Sugar Smokies.  They're really more of an appetizer, but occasionally I'll make them for supper. 

You're going to need:
1 16 oz. pkg smokies (I prefer to use beef)
8-10 slices bacon, uncooked
1 1/2 cups brown sugar (I use light, but I see no reason why you couldn't use dark.)

I count the smokies in the package so I can cut the exact number of bacon pieces I will need, and yes I'm aware of how OCD that sounds.  Just in case you're wondering and don't feel like counting it's an average of 37-40 smokies per package.

Wrap each smokie in a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Place wrapped smokies in a foil lined baking pan.  Trust me, you're going to want to use the foil.  Otherwise cleaning up is a nightmare.  Sprinkle the brown sugar evenly over the top.

Bake them in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Then place them in the broiler for 4-6 minutes to brown up the bacon.

Can you make out the cow pictured on the plate?  I own two sets of dishes, one covered with cows and the other covered with Winnie the Pooh cartoon characters, you can click here to see the willy, nilly silly, old bear plate.  Occasionally I think I should probably own a set of grown up dishes.  Then I think about the fact that my grandmother bought the cow dishes for me when I got married, and L bought the Winnie the Pooh dishes for me as a birthday present and I decide that grown up dishes are probably overrated.
