Bacon Cocktail Weenies

INGREDIENTS

  • 1lb bacon, any kind (maple-flavored works well.)
  • 1package cocktail smoked sausage links
  • 1lb light brown sugar (you can use more if you like)
  • 1box of round toothpick

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray 9×13 inch cake pan with non stick spray.
  3. (not neccessary but will definately help with clean up) Open package of bacon and cut entire slab into thirds.
  4. Wrap a third of a slice of bacon around each cocktail weenie and secure with toothpicks.
  5. Place each bacon wrapped weenie in cake pan, making sure to crowd them together.
  6. (You’ll want to leave an empty space in one corner of pan for ease of basting.) Liberally cover weenies with brown sugar, leaving only the toothpicks exposed.
  7. Place weenies in hot oven.
  8. Every 10 minutes or so, baste weenies with sugar/bacon grease mixture and break up any lumps of sugar.
  9. Continue until sugar is completely melted and bacon is thoroughly cooked.
  10. When serving, be sure to drizzle sugar/bacon grease over weenies and on the platter.
  11. Some people like to swirl their weenies in the syrup before cramming them in their mouths.
  12. I’ve never really timed this recipe, but I’m going to guesstimate the time at@30-40 minutes.
  13. Servings also depend on the crowd you are feeding.
  14. My crew will argue that 15-20 weenies qualify as a serving!
