What happens if I don’t have any toothpicks?
Not to worry! You can still make these bacon wrapped smokies, but, you’ll need this tip first!
Bacon shrinks when it is cooked in the oven. Therefore, you’ll want to ensure that you have enough bacon wrapped around the entire smokie. Before baking on the baking sheet, make sure to place seam side down. This will ensure that the bacon doesn’t slip off the smokie during the cooking process.
I like my bacon a little more well done. Can you help?
I get it! As a family of 5, 3 of us enjoy a crisp bacon. You can simply leave the bacon in longer or increase the heat of your oven. For my gas oven, I put it on at 380° for about 25 minutes for a crisp bacon.
Each oven varies when it comes to the heat and the baking process. With plenty of experience you’ll get the time dial in in no time!
