One of my aunts (who makes the most wonderful food ever) gave me this recipe after one of our traditional Christmas Eve Parties. I think I ate at least a couple dozen of these. This is another appetizer that I always bring with me now. Thanks auntie :)
1 pound sliced bacon, cut into thirds
1 (14 ounce) package beef cocktail wieners (For GF, just double check these. You never know when gluten will be slipped in)
3/4 cup brown sugar, or to taste
1-Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F
2-Refrigerate 2/3 of the bacon until needed. It is easier to wrap the wieners with cold bacon.
3-Wrap each cocktail wiener with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick. Place on a large baking sheet.
4- Sprinkle brown sugar generously over all.
5- Bake for 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sugar is bubbly. To serve, place the wieners in a slow cooker and keep on the low setting.
**Randi's Side Notes**
~ When I bake these I just line them up in a glass baking dish. It seems to make it so the brown sugar doesn't get burned as easily and keeps it nice and juicy.
