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
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.
