Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Weenies

Yup, were wrapping stuff in bacon again. Can you really ever have enough bacon? I think not.

This simple party appetizer came from one of my best girl friends years ago. She was looking for a quick and easy dish to bring to a party we were having. We all loved them and history was made. 

I have continued to make these for parties and events throughout the year. They do take a little time to prep, but they are so yummy that they are completely worth it.

Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Weenies

makes approx. 60

  • 2 14oz. packages of smoked cocktail sausages
  • 3 medium jalapeno peppers
  • 1 ½ pounds of bacon 
  • Brown sugar 

Note – I prefer to use smoked sausages because I think they give a little more flavor, but unsmoked work as well. There are also cocktail sausages available that have cheese in them. They too are delicious. 

I start by getting all the prep done and out of the way so assembly is easier. 

Cut up the jalapeno peppers into thin strips. Cut 1 and ½ packages of bacon into thirds. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Wrap bacon and jalapeno strips around little sausage and secure with a toothpick.

Space wrapped sausages evenly on parchment lined baking sheets. 

Sprinkle sausages with brown sugar. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes until bacon is crispy. 

Serve warm. 

Bring them to a party or serve them at your own. Enjoy!
