Brown Sugar Bacon Wrapped Sausages
These little bacon wrapped sausages are absolutely scrumptious! Smothered in brown sugar, then cooked until nice and crispy, they are a HUGE crowd pleaser. They're really a great appetizer for any occasion, but they go especially well with a Super Bowl party or a barnyard party.
What You'll Need
- 1 (16-ounce package lil smokies sausages
- 1 pound bacon (the leaner the better)
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
- Toothpicks or skewers (optional)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Unwrap the bacon and cut the strips into thirds.
- Place the brown sugar in a bowl.
- Wrap each little sausage with a piece of bacon and roll in the brown sugar until completely covered. If desired, secure with a toothpick, or thread on a skewer and arrange on a baking sheet. My preference is to just lay them seam-side-down on the baking sheet...the seam will seal as the bacon cooks.
- Sprinkle the remaining brown sugar over the tops of the sausages.
- Bake for about 40 minutes, allowing the brown sugar to "melt" onto the sausages. After 40 minutes, turn the oven to broil and cook for a few minutes until the bacon is crisp. Turn the sausages over and broil to your desired doneness.
This hot wings recipe is a huge favorite, and is always requested at get-togethers. Be warned, though...they go really fast, so you may want to make a few extra batches!
How to Make Hot WingsIngredients:
- Vegetable oil
- 1 pack chicken wings, cut into sections (throw the tips away)
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1 tablespoon creole seasoning
- 1 cup milk
- Your favorite hot sauce (we like Crystal)
- Blue Cheese dressing
- Heat oil in large, deep skillet over medium-high heat.
- Combine the flour, salt, and creole seasoning on a plate. Pour the milk into a bowl. Dip each wingette in milk, then dredge in flour mixture until well coated.
- Fry the wingettes in hot oil, turning occasionally, until dark golden brown on all sides. Sprinkle once or twice with salt and pepper. Drain on paper towels.
- Melt about 3-4 tablespoons of butter in a small bowl in the microwave. Add about 1/2 cup (or more, if desired) of hot sauce to butter; mix well. For milder wings, use more butter. For wings with a little more kick, use more hot sauce.
- Combine chicken wingettes and hot sauce mixture in a large bowl, tossing to coat wingettes with mixture. Remove chicken to a plate. Serve with blue cheese dressing and celery sticks.
