Hillshire Farm offers two recipes featuring Lit'l Smokies and bacon. The first is simply called Pig in Heaven. Cut bacon slices into three to four pieces each, then wrap each cocktail weenie in bacon. Secure the bacon with a toothpick, and bake on a large baking sheet at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 20 minutes.
Another Hillshire Farm recipe, Snow Pup, turns a Lit'l Smokie into a cute snow dog. Wrap a piece of bacon around the weenie like a scarf, and pin with a toothpick. Use a small bit of diced carrot for the nose, and bake. Break mini pretzels in half and use to create snowman arms, then pipe on barbecue sauce for eyes and ketchup for the mouth.
Add bacon to other recipes featuring Lit'l Smokies. Rest the weenie under a covering of bacon before baking pigs in a blanket. Alternately, add a Lit'l Smokie to a favorite bacon recipe, such as bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers. Or, add a sweet twist to the Pig in Heaven recipe by covering the bacon-wrapped weenies in brown sugar before baking.Learn more about Meat
