Sugared Bacon Wrapped Smokies

Nonstick cooking spray
1 16-oz. pkg. small cooked smoked sausage links
15 slices bacon, each cut crosswise into thirds
3/4 cup packed brown sugar

Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with foil; lightly coat with cooking spray. Set aside.

Wrap each sausage link with a bacon piece, overlapping the bacon piece at the end. Press the end of the bacon piece to seal or secure it with a wood toothpick.

Place brown sugar in a large plastic storage bag. Add several bacon-wrapped sausages at a time and seal. Shake bag gently to coat sausages with brown sugar; place in prepared pan. Repeat with remaining bacon-wrapped sausages.

Bake in a 350°F oven about 30 minutes, or until the bacon is browned.

Serve immediately. Makes about 45 smokies.

Make-ahead tip: Prepare the recipe as directed above through step 3. Cover and chill the sausages for up to 24 hours. To serve, uncover and bake as directed in step 4.
