DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spray 9x13 inch cake pan with non stick spray.
  • (not neccessary but will definately help with clean up) Open package of bacon and cut entire slab into thirds.
  • Wrap a third of a slice of bacon around each cocktail weenie and secure with toothpicks.
  • Place each bacon wrapped weenie in cake pan, making sure to crowd them together.
  • (You'll want to leave an empty space in one corner of pan for ease of basting.) Liberally cover weenies with brown sugar, leaving only the toothpicks exposed.
  • Place weenies in hot oven.
  • Every 10 minutes or so, baste weenies with sugar/bacon grease mixture and break up any lumps of sugar.
  • Continue until sugar is completely melted and bacon is thoroughly cooked.
  • When serving, be sure to drizzle sugar/bacon grease over weenies and on the platter.
  • Some people like to swirl their weenies in the syrup before cramming them in their mouths.
  • I've never really timed this recipe, but I'm going to guesstimate the time at@30-40 minutes.
  • Servings also depend on the crowd you are feeding.
  • My crew will argue that 15-20 weenies qualify as a serving!
