1 package (16 oz.) Hillshire Farm Lit'l Smokies
1 package (12 oz.) bacon
1 cup packed brown sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Cut each bacon slice into 3 pieces. Wrap each sausage with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp and brown sugar melts to form a sauce.
How can you go wrong with sausage wrapped in bacon? Or, for that matter, anything wrapped in bacon. This is such an easy appetizer, and perfect for "manly" events like the Super Bowl. I don't find it's really necessary to put the toothpicks in before cooking. I do like to add them afterwards though. They make serving and eating much easier (and more fun!). I would definitely line your pan with foil. The brown sugar cooks up into a sticky and delicious, but hard to clean up sauce. These can be prepared ahead of time and popped into the oven just before serving.
Who Dished It Up First
This recipe can be found on the Hillshire Farms website. Thanks to my friend Amy for sending it to me just in time for the Super Bowl. She made sheets of these for her daughter's wedding and says they went fast, proving that this casual, easy appetizer is going to be hit at any gathering.
