HOW TO MAKE BROWN SUGAR BACON-WRAPPED KIELBASA BITES

Cook time: 40 minutes
Yields: 30 pieces


Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. polish kielbasa sausage
  • 10 slices bacon
  • 1 1/2 Cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 Tbs stone-ground mustard
  • 3 Tbs white wine vinegar
  • 1 Tbs black pepper (optional)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with a baking/cooling rack. Lightly spray the rack with non-stick spray.
  2. Cut kielbasa done the middle, lengthwise. Slice each half into 1 inch pieces, you should have about 30 pieces of kielbasa. Cut each piece of bacon into thirds. Wrap one bacon strip around each piece of kielbasa and secure with a toothpick. Set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine brown sugar, vinegar, mustard and pepper. Heat over medium, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Keep warm on low.
  4. Brush the kielbasa with glaze and place on the baking sheet/rack. Bake for 40 minutes and baste every 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Notes:

  1. The pepper is optional. Black pepper flakes are used in this recipe. They’re not as strong and look really nice in the glaze.
