Now I know most of you have probably had these before and are shaking your head at your monitor now. However, I had never had these and I loved them. My son called me to tell me that he was bringing this recipe to our home for Christmas dinner. He told me that you wrap bacon around cocktail sausagesand then roll in brown sugar and bake. I asked him if he would make me some using Sugar Twin Brown Sugar Replacement and he agreed.
He, Kristin and Caleb arrived carrying two bowls of these. One was diet and the other was with real brown sugar. Everyone but me and Mike tried both and everyone agreed that the diet ones were better. I loved these so much that over the weekend I made some for myself for here.
Stephen was so sweet. He told me that he had already done the math and for every 5 sausages that I ate it was only 2 carbs. When I bought my sausages at Aldi’s I was able to figure that I could have 7 of that brand for 2 carbs. For that reason I am not giving the nutritional information for this one. It all depends on the brand of cocktail sausages that you purchase.
Sugar Twin® Granulated Brown
is a wonderful product. I use it in BBQ sauces quite often. The only problem that I have is finding it locally. Only one store sells it in my area and it is 45 minutes from my home. They also only carry it during the holidays so I have to get it and stock up. When I really need it I do purchase it from Amazon as well.
Bacon Wrapped Cocktail Sausages
- 1 pound sliced bacon
- 14 ounce package cocktail sausages
- 1/2 cup Sugar Twin Brown Sugar Replacement
This works better if the bacon is cold so work wrapping the first half while leaving the bacon in the fridge until ready to wrap the second half of the sausages.
Cut bacon so it is long enough to circle and overlap the sausages. Secure together with toothpicks. Dip in brown sugar and place on baking sheet. (I lined mine with foil for easier cleanup). Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 40 minutes. Remove from pan to serving dish or place in crockpot to keep warm for the party.
