Tips for Crockpot Bacon Wrapped Little Smokies:

  • Move Smokies around – We move the smokies around occasionally to ensure that they cook evenly in the crock pot. 
  • Secure the bacon – We recommend using a toothpick to secure the bacon around the little smokie.
  • Touching the sides of the slow cooker – The sausages touching the sides will tend to brown faster. So make sure you these may get little burnt if not moved.
  • Single Layer – We recommend placing the lil smokies at the bottom of the slow cooker for the best option. The bacon cooks evenly.

How to Store Leftovers:

Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. If you prepare them ahead of time for a party, you can simple place them back in the slow cooker to serve. Just place your slow cooker on warm.

  • Prepare the lil smokies by wrapping them in bacon.
  • You can cook them now or place them on a baking sheet and place in the freezer.
  • Allow the lil smokies to freeze individually for at least 2 to 3 hours.
  • Once the lil smokies are frozen, place in a freezer safe container and place in the freezer.
  • They will stay good for up to 3 months.
  • When ready to serve, thaw in the refrigerator over night.
  • Then reheat in the slow cooker or in the oven.

  • Kind of Cocktail Sausages – There are different flavors and types of lil smokies. Feel free to use what you have or what flavor you prefer. Cocktail Sausages pork and beef will work in this recipe.
  • Cayenne Pepper – If you like hot lil smokies, add in a teaspoon of cayenne pepper with the brown sugar.
  • Paprika – You can add brown sugar and paprika for a hint of warm flavor to the lil smokies recipe.
  • Bacon – You can use any type of bacon you prefer. I like to use thick bacon but you can use smoked, hickory, applewood or turkey bacon.
