Hello, fellow flavor explorers! Today, on “Life with Jeviko”, I’m thrilled to let you in on the secret to one of my favorite crowd-pleasing appetizers – the unforgettable Sweet and Savory Bacon-Wrapped Mini Sausages. Imagine taking a bite into the symphony of rich, smoky, and sweet flavors, and you’ll instantly see why these morsels are always the star of my get-togethers!

What makes this treat worth trying? It’s the perfect combo of simplicity and gourmet taste. The ingredients are few and common, but when combined, they create a heavenly bite that leaves everyone craving for more. Imagine the blend of crisp bacon, succulent sausages, and a glossy, sweet glaze – I assure you, they’re nothing short of a flavor carnival!

So, roll up your sleeves and let’s get started with our easy-peasy, step-by-step guide to creating this party hit.

Ingredients (Makes 55 Pieces):

  • 1 pound of Bacon, divided into thirds
  • 1 pound of mini sausages (Think Lil’ Smokies or similar)
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) of Butter
  • 2 cups of Brown Sugar


  1. Set the stage by preheating your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. This golden temperature ensures your bacon and sausages bake to perfection, achieving a beautiful balance of texture and flavor.
  2. Grab your bacon and cut each slice into thirds. This proportion ensures a perfect ratio of bacon to sausage, creating a harmonious blend of tastes in every mouthful.
  3. It’s wrapping time! Swaddle each mini sausage in a piece of bacon. This step not only amplifies the flavor profile but also ensures the sausages stay succulent. Arrange these joy bundles in a baking dish, making sure they’re in a single layer.
  4. Now let’s craft the glaze. Melt your butter and stir in 1 cup of brown sugar until it’s smoothly combined. This buttery, sugary concoction enriches the dish, providing a glossy glaze that clings lovingly to the bacon-wrapped sausages.
  5. To intensify the sweetness and add a touch of caramel delight, generously sprinkle the remaining brown sugar over the top of your sausages.
  6. Now it’s time for these tantalizing treats to bake. Slide your dish into the oven and let them bake for about 15-20 minutes. To achieve a crispy, golden finish, increase the heat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit for an additional 5 minutes. Keep a keen eye on your precious bites during this step to prevent any chance of burning.
  7. Once they have achieved a beautiful caramel color, remove the tray from the oven and allow them to cool a bit before serving. If you’re planning to serve them as finger food, just slide a toothpick into each for hassle-free munching.


  • Preheat Oven: Always start with a preheated oven at 375°F for even cooking.
  • Perfect Portions: Cut bacon slices into thirds for the ideal sausage-to-bacon ratio.
  • Wrapping: Make sure each sausage is fully wrapped in bacon for added flavor and juiciness.
  • Glaze: Create a butter and brown sugar glaze for a rich, glossy finish.
  • Sweetness: Add an extra layer of brown sugar for caramelization.
  • Baking Process: Bake at 375°F for 15-20 minutes, then roast at 400°F for 5 minutes for crispness. Monitor closely to prevent burning.
  • Serve Right: Cool slightly before serving. If serving as finger food, use toothpicks for convenience.
