How to give a boost to a classic appetizer? With a spicy touch, of course!

Famous bacon-wrapped cocktail sausages are part of several traditional appetizers served at many receptions. Some add a hint of maple syrup and many dive into brown sugar before grilling them in the oven. But the recipe we offer is even better than the versions you probably already know!

Here's how to give them a little spice: before putting your bacon wrapped sausages in the oven, roll them in a mixture of brown sugar, pepper and cayenne pepper. The sweet-spicy-peppery mix will be an instant hit at your party!

A great idea for your appetizer tables during the holidays!

  • 1 pack of 16 oz (455 gr) small cocktail sausages
  • 15 slices of bacon, each cut into 3 small slices

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Dry the sausages with a paper towel or paper napkins. Wrap each sausage with a piece of cut bacon so that a slice of bacon is wrapped around each mini sausage.

Insert a toothpick to prevent bacon from unrolling.

Pour the brown sugar, cayenne pepper and black pepper into a large resealable plastic bag. Using a spoon, mix the brown sugar with the seasonings inside the resealable bag. Or, pour everything into a bowl, mix well with a spoon and then put the mixture of brown sugar and spices into a resealable plastic bag.

Then add several sausages wrapped in bacon, seal the bag and shake gently by handling the bag with your hands to coat each sausage as evenly as possible.

Repeat this step with remaining sausages.

Place the sausages coated with brown sugar and spices on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the bacon is golden and crisp.

To make the bacon even crispier, after cooking, grill the sausages on the baking sheet for a few minutes by putting the broiler/grill oven setting on.

Recipe notes:

Do you like barbecue sauce? For a different version, bake as directed, then baste barbecue sauce and grill over high heat until sausages become sticky, about 3-4 minutes.
