Title says it all!  This is a recipe everyone has in their back pocket and a recipe that is loved by all! Please don’t judge this recipe because of the microwave bacon.  This is the one and only time you will see it on this blog. I have made this recipe with every cut of bacon and to be honest I have found this to be not only the easiest,  but the best.   No one knows it is microwave bacon! When I give the recipe out , everyone gives me that look, ya know the one you are giving me now!  Have faith, it works and no one will be the wiser, it s just between us!



1 Package of  li’l smokies
1 package of microwave bacon  ( yes, microwave)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)

Preheat oven 325 degrees.  I have made this two different ways, its up to you now!

Choice one:
Cut the bacon in half , wrap around smokie, secure with a tooth pick. continue until all of the smokies are done. place all of the smokies in a large ziploc bag and add the brown sugar to marinate over night…

Choice two:
Cut bacon in half , wrap smokie with a tooth pick and place on a cookie sheet until all of the smokies are wrapped. When all have been wrapped sprinkle brown sugar over top.

Place on a cookie sheet with non stick foil, bake until bacon is crisp 10-12 minutes. Transfer to a crock pot on the low or keep warm setting.

Add maple syrup.
