Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place each little smokie on the baking sheet.

Place in the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Turn them over and bake for another 10 minutes until the bacon is nice and crispy.

Tips for making Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies:

  • Don’t overcook. Be sure to check the little smokies after a few minutes, prior to turning over. Due to oven temperature differences, your appetizers may not take the full 10 minutes on each side.  
  • To make clean up a breeze, line the baking pan with aluminum foil. It’s so much easier than cleaning up grease from the pan.
  • It’s best to use regular cut bacon, not think cut. Also, I don’t recommend using pre-cooked bacon. You want to get the full flavor of the bacon cooking with the little smokies. 

Can you cook them ahead of time? 

Yes! The great thing about this appetizer is you can make them ahead of time either in the oven or the crockpot. If your crockpot has a warm setting, you can keep them in the crockpot until guests arrive.

You can also keep them in a tupperware container and warm them up before serving.

How long will bacon wrapped little smokies last?

Once cooked, you can store them in the fridge for up to 3 days. They also freeze really well in an air tight container for up to 3 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to find Monk Fruit Sweetener 

You can always order it on Amazon. But, you may be able to find it at Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods. I also spotted it at Sprouts in Colorado last week.

Can you make these in a Crock-Pot? 

Yes! Make them the same way but place them in the crock-pot instead of the oven and cook on high for 3-4 hours. 

Are Little Smokies Keto-Friendly?

Yes! Each package of little smokies has about 24 smokies. The entire package (Hillshire Farms brand) has only 5 net carbs, 53 grams of fat, and 38 grams of protein. This makes them a great option for those following a keto lifestyle.
