1 (16-ounce) package Conecuh® Sausage
1 to 2 (12-ounce) package(s) bacon
½ cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar, divided
Cut sausage into 1-inch pieces. Cut bacon in half lengthwise. Wrap a piece of bacon around each piece of sausage to cover, and secure bacon with a toothpick. Place ½ cup packed brown sugar in a shallow bowl; roll each wrapped sausage bite in sugar. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight. Remove from refrigerator and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Remove from oven, and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon brown sugar. Makes 48.
Editor's Note: If desired, place baked sausage bites on a double layer of paper towel for a few minutes to absorb excess grease.
