    Ingredients
    1 regular size package Eckrich® Li'l Smokies
    42 toothpicks
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    14 slices regular bacon
    Coarse grained mustard (optional)
    Directions
    1. Heat oven to 375°F. Soak toothpicks in cold water at least 10 minutes. Line bottom of a 15 x 10-inch cookie sheet with foil. Place brown sugar in a shallow bowl.
    2. Stack bacon; cut crosswise into 3 equal pieces. Wrap each piece bacon around a Li'l Smokie, roll in brown sugar. Use a soaked toothpick to skewer all the way through the center and out the opposite side. Place half of the prepared smokies on cookie sheet.
    3. Bake 10 minutes; turn over and continue baking 5 minutes or until bacon is golden brown. Repeat baking with remaining half. Let cool before serving. Serve warm or at room temperature on a lettuce-lined platter. Have mustard in a small bowl for dipping if desired.
    TIP: having a party? Bake one pan of Li'l Smokies when guests arrive and the second pan an hour later.
