Bacon Wrapped Sausages

Bacon-wrapped sausages are a perfect dish for brunch or breakfast, served with scrambled eggs, toast, and a fruit salad. Smoked sausages, bacon, and brown sugar are the core ingredients in a recipe that’s sure to be a hit. They can also make a nice lunch when served with greens or a side of steamed vegetables. They’re really versatile as appetizers for holiday gatherings and go well with honey mustard, homemade ketchup, or spicy salsa.


  • 3/4 pound bacon strips, halved crosswise
  • (1-pound) package small smoked sausages
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Heat oven to 400 F. Line a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with foil or parchment and put a wire rack on top.

  3. Fry the bacon in a large pan over medium heat until some of the fat is rendered but the bacon is still pliable. Do not let the bacon get crispy, or you won’t be able to wrap it around the sausages.

  4. Place the bacon on paper towels and cool it down for 5 minutes.

  5. Wrap each sausage with a piece of the precooked bacon and secure with a toothpick.

  6. Place the brown sugar in a bowl and roll each sausage and bacon bundle in it. Place the sausages on a wire rack over the foil-lined pan. Always use the wire rack. The drippings that come from the bacon and sugar burn easily; keeping the sausages away from the drippings prevents them from burning, too.

  7. Drizzle or brush the maple syrup over the sausages and sprinkle with the pepper.

  8. Bake the bacon-wrapped sausages for 25 to 35 minutes, or until the sausages are hot and the bacon is crispy.

  9. Remove the rack from the baking pan and cool the wrapped sausage bundles for 4 to 5 minutes before serving.
