Brown Sugar Smokies

Yesterday after making the Bacon Wrapped Pineapple Bites, my sister and I decided to make another appetizer that is wrapped in bacon. These appetizers are made in a similar way to the Pineapple Bites, but use mini smoked sausages as the treat inside the bacon.






Brown Sugar Smokies
1 pound bacon
1 (16 ounce) package little smokie sausages
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Wooden skewers or toothpicks

Soak the skewers or toothpicks in a bowl of water.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a broiler pan with nonstick cooking spray, or you may use a baking rack with a sheet pan. The appetizers need to be cooked on a broiler pan or a rack so they will be up out of the juices that are released as they are cooked.

This is the type of sausages that are needed.



Cut bacon slices into thirds. If you are using center cut bacon, the slices will only need to be cut in half.


In a shallow bowl, mix brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Dredge bacon slices in the mixture, then wrap a strip around a little sausage. Secure bacon with a wooden pick or skewer.


Arrange wrapped sausages on prepared pan, then sprinkle with remaining brown sugar mixture.


Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, then place under the broiler for 3 additional minutes.

These were so good.


The cayenne pepper adds just a little kick, making them perfect party food.
