Adventures in Hostessing: Go to Appetizer

I have been blessed to get to know all 4 of my grandparents in my lifetime. 
This is my Grandma and Grandpa Seger.
My go to appetizer comes from my Grandma Seger's long list of delicious treats that she generously makes for her family and friends. She has passed on many recipes to me, but this is the simplest and most requested. 
Grandma's Bacon Wrapped Weenies.
They are so easy and so yummy!
You will need:
1 package of little smokie cocktail weenies
1 package of bacon 
brown sugar

Cover and refrigerate for a few hours. Grandma Seger prepares them a day ahead to time and refrigerate them overnight. The juices from the meat turn the 
brown sugar in to kind of a carmel sauce. 
Remove from refrigerator and
bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
And enjoy!
These were on the menu for our Super Bowl party along with BBQ pulled pork sandwiches, brisket, baked beans, potato salad, and some yummy dips and salsas. 
What yummy things did you eat this weekend?

Stay tuned for more Grandma Seger recipes!

  8. I have made the weenies with bacon but never ever with brown sugar, I so have to try that it looks so good!

  9. Looks so yummy. Please come share at Bacon Time's weekly anything goes linky.

  10. You should try canned water chestnuts instead of weiners some time. You'll have to use a liquid marinade instead of brown sugar (maybe syrup & soya sauce?), but the combination of sweet, bacon, & crunch is amazing.

  11. YUMMMMMMYYYYY, don't you just love these !

  12. Yum. My hubby would LOVE those. I'm so glad you shared at Shine on Fridays! Hope you'll be back again this weekend!
