I haven't been able to for a couple of years now, but I love having an open house at Christmas. I love inviting our friends over and serving them yummy food. So I'm always looking to see what I can come up with that I haven't done before. These little nuggets of awesomeness are going to make an appearance at my next gathering! These are really simple to make...and you can make a little or a lot! We downed them pretty fast and it's not even Christmas yet!
Kielbasa Bacon Bites
1 package bacon
1 package kielbasa sausage
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a rimmed cookie sheet with cooking spray.
Slice kielbasa into 1" pieces...about 24 chunks.
Cut bacon in half.
Combine brown sugar and cayenne pepper (if using) in a shallow bowl and stir to combine.
Wrap a half piece of bacon around each chunk of kielbasa. (You may have a piece or two of bacon left over)
Roll in the brown sugar mixture, making sure all sides are coated.
Secure with a toothpick and set on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 20 - 30 minutes or until bacon is slightly crispy and done.
Cool for 5 minutes then arrange on a platter.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
