these are awesome! My sister has been making these for a few years.. and they never fail to disappear! The only difference in the way we do them, is we wrap the bacon around the weinies and bakefor 25 minutes on a broiler pan to get rid of some of the fat, then layer them in a crockpot with the brown sugar and keep on low for a couple of hours.. YUM!
These were fantastic, everyone loved them. I think good bacon makes a big difference here. I used uncured maple bacon. Also, I ended up mixing light and dark brown sugar. I made them up the night before, put the sugar on top, and then stuck them in the fridge. The sugar and fat interacted and dissolved overnight. I was a little worried at first, but they came out fine. It meant they did not have as much of the crunchy sugar on top, but there was a lot of great syrup to swirl them in, making them almost candy-coated. I was also a bit worried about the consistency of the bacon because I hate floppy bacon, but it was actually great. It was not crisp, but it was completely cooked and did not have that feeling that undercooked bacon has. I did end up cooking mine longer than recommended, probably up to an hour, but the oven may not have been up to temperature. Also, let these cool a good long time before you serve them, especially if you cook them in a pyrex pan that holds the heat! They sizzled for 5 whole minutes after I took them out of the oven.
No one can say no to these. I roll them in the sugar and sprinkle a bit on top. I also use a baking rack so they don't stick to bad and the bacon grease drains away. If you have never made them, you must try them!
Thats good recipe Im surprised no one mentioned,using pineapple juice with brown sugar poured over those weiners too
Just tried it and looks fantastic!! aroma is great as well. Only complaint of my own fault would be highly recommending the use on a broiler pan or something which releases the bacon fat away to allow them to crispin up.
This qualifies as a Vintage recipe. I've made it for MANY years. A great appetizer! You can make them ahead and freeze them, then cook for 1-1/2 hours. If you have some of the brown sugar mix left after eating, put it in baked beans. Yum.
My husband is in the military and I am always cooking this and that for his office. I made this one day and it has been requested ever since. I have yet to meet anyone who doesn't love it. You must use the maple flavored bacon for the ultimate experience. Sinfully delicious!!! Heaven for bacon lovers.
OMG.....these are amazing. DS#2 requested these for our football party so I gave them a shot. Yummy, they will now be a regular for us at the football games. They are so good. And really simple to prepare. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
These are ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!!! I have even made them with turkey bacon and they still come out great!!
This is a really nice way to make cocktail wienies. I had these at a baby shower, and the only thing that was done differently was the fact that the hostess made these in a crockpot and cooked them on low heat for several hours-sweet and smoky. Thank you for sharing.
