BBQ Bacon Wrapped Weenies

This is a simple recipe that is great to take to a potluck or to serve as an appetizer. People love them so much that you won't have leftovers to take home (even if it is a group of women). They are so tasty!

BBQ Bacon wrapped weenies
You will need:
  • 1 lb little weenies (I used Hormel lil smokies)
  • 1 lb uncooked bacon
  • 1 cup bbq sauce (I used something with a little spice since you add so much sweet)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • honey
  • wooden toothpicks

Line a 9x13 pan with foil (it will make clean up much easier and the bacon get crisper). Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Cut the bacon strips into 1/4s. Wrap each weenie with bacon, secure with a toothpick. Be sure you use wooden toothpicks, plastic will melt in the oven.

Measure bbq sauce out and stir in the brown sugar in a bowl or measuring cup. Place wrapped smokies into the 9X13 pan, drizzle with BBQ sauce mixture. Next, drizzle honey in a zig zag pattern. No need to coat them in the honey. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until bacon is slightly crispy. Be careful not to over bake, the BBQ sauce will quickly darken and bacon can become rubbery.

If you do have left overs, refrigerate in a container making sure you have bbq sauce to keep them moist.
