Smoky Bacon Wraps

These cute little sausage and bacon bites are finger-licking good. They have a sweet and salty taste that's fun for breakfast or as an appetizer. —Cara Flora, Kokomo, Indiana

    Love this for an appetizer or a football party. I basted a little barbecue sauce before the brown sugar.

    These were a big hit for Christmas Eve. I used Nueske's Wild Cherry Wood Bacon cut in thirds and decreased the brown sugar to 2 TBSPS. sprinkled over the top. I think my hubby ate most of them! :)

    Taking the maple or smoked bacon lengthwise, I cut it into 3 short lengths instead of one long length. Then I take my brown sugar, having spread it out onto wax paper, and I press one side of each length of bacon into the sugar. I then wrap each smokie with the sugared bacon. Laying the wrapped smokies onto parchment paper lines cookie sheets, I bake them at 350° for 20-30 min until the bacon is crispy. Delicious!

    I cut down on the brown sugar and they were plenty sweet. There were rave reviews from everyone who tried them. They were certainly no left-overs!

    Does anyone know if these can be made, refrigerated and then taken to a party and reheated in a microwave without losing its original goodness?

    My aunt made these all the time when I was a kid so when I found this recipe I had to try it. They were tangy and sweet just like hers.

    Very quick and easy tasty snack. Took them to a recent snack food potluck and they were a hit! I reccomend using foil underneath for easy cleanup and check them often as the brown sugar burns easily.
