Bacon Wrapped Sausages are easy to make and perfect for a special brunch or breakfast. Or make them for an appetizer party.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 40 minutes

Yield: Serves 8


  • 3/4 pound regular bacon
  • 1 pound package small smoked sausages
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut bacon slices in half. Fry bacon in large pan until some of the fat is rendered but the bacon is still pliable; do not let bacon get crisp.

Cool bacon 5 minutes on paper towels, then wrap each sausage with a piece of the precooked bacon. Roll each little bundle in brown sugar, fasten with a toothpick, and place on wire rack. Place rack in 13" x 9" baking pan lined with foil.

Drizzle maple syrup over the sausages and sprinkle with pepper. Bake 25-35 minutes until sausages are hot and bacon is crisp. Remove rack from pan and cool sausage bundles 4-5 minutes before serving.

It's important to use the wire rack because the drippings that come from the bacon and sugar burn easily. You want to keep the little sausages out of the drippings.

My sister made these last night for a card party, and they were excellent! She used maple bacon too and they were so tasty that I am going to a Superbowl party and I am making them to bring..
