I know that I usually share crafting items on this site, but today I wanted to tell you about a snack that my husband always asks me to make for him on Super Bowl Sunday. It is an appetizer that his friends named “Heart Attack on a Stick”, but even with a name like that, they are devoured quickly!
1 package of bacon
1 package of sausage (we like the maple brown sugar flavored)
Cut the bacon strips in half, and the sausage links in thirds.
Wrap the piece of bacon around the piece of sausage, and insert a toothpick to secure the entire thing.
Line them up in a glass pan.
If we are just having a small group of people over, I use a small square pan. The nice thing is that you can wrap all of the sausage from the package, and what does not fit in the pan you can put in the freezer and use for a gathering later on. For a large group, use a 9×13 pan, and you should be able to fill the entire thing with the one package of sausage.
Now, sprinkle brown sugar over the entire thing, and let it sit for a few hours. I like to make this up in the afternoon, then I can let it sit and throw it in the oven when the game starts, and they are ready for half time.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45-60 minutes. Once they are done, I remove mine from the baking pan and place them on a plate with paper towels on it. This helps to soak up some of the grease.
