This easy recipe was a huge hit at my super bowl party after a friend and I played around with a few different recipes and eventually made this up on our own. They went FAST so I’m definitely making this again!
Bacon-Wrapped Sausage with Brown Sugar Dijon Glaze
Prep: 10-15 minutes Cook: 35 minutes Total: 45-50 minutes
Tools you’ll need:
- Cookie sheet
- Aluminum foil or parchment paper
- Small stovetop pot
- Glazing brush
- 1 package of Eckrich or Hillshire Farm Smoked Sausage (near Kielbasa)
- 1 jar (12 oz.) of dijon mustard
- 1 1/4 cup of brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of maple syrup
- 1 package of bacon – maple bacon for a more sugary flavor, hardwood smoked for smokey flavor
- Preheat oven to 350ºF
- Slice sausages to desired thickness (remember you’ll be wrapping the bacon) – set aside
- Cut slices of bacon into thirds.
- Wrap pieces of bacon around pieces of sausage and secure with toothpicks and place on foil-lined sheet pan. Set aside.
- Mix mustard, brown sugar and maple syrup over low heat until sugar is dissolved and the sauce has thickened.
- Brush the glaze over the bacon-wrapped sausages, almost drenching them. It’ll give the bacon a crispy, candied finish. Leave some glaze for after the sausage is cooked to pour over or for dipping.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes or until they start to crisp.
- Place cooked sausages on serving platter and use a spoon to drizzle the sausage with the remainder of the glaze.
Unfortunately I didn’t take pictures as I was going along because I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but I’ll add photos the next time! I’d like to thank Meghan C. for her help in developing this simple recipe.
