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