Maple Bacon Wrapped Andouille Bites

 

Here we are. The end of the 12 days of Christmas.  As I told you, we celebrate in a big way around here as these last days draw to a close. Friends of mine hold a “Breaking up Christmas” party in which we bring food, our Christmas trees and our musical instruments. Those of us who aren’t musically inclined simply bring our appreciation. I try to bring extra good food to show my appreciation – you know, play to your strengths – right? Thus, the creation of Maple Bacon Wrapped Andouille Bites.

Below you will find some pictures and links to video from last night’s party. You will also note the terrible video quality. That is because my dear friends live without electricity – which I so admire  – but couldn’t do myself. Anyway, candlelight makes for poor video circumstance.

I hope you will enjoy these Maple Bacon Wrapped Andouille Bites as much as we did last night. These  were definitely group approved. Response to a first bite of these went like this… “D*** that was GOOD!”. I hope these Maple Bacon Andouille Bites  will find a way to your next party too!

It is important to note that YOU MUST put the aluminum foil on the bottom of your rimmed cookie sheet and YOU MUST spray your rack with non stick spray or you will have a HOT MESS! I still had a hot mess! What drips into the pan becomes like a bacon candy. If you put the rack in the dishwasher, it comes out clean. So, no worries.

Serving suggestions

I serve this on a small tray with cheese, crackers and small dill pickles.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Andouille Sausage find in the lunch meat/hot dog section of the grocery cooler
  • 1 lb thin sliced maple flavored bacon
  • 1 ½ cups Dark Brown sugar packed
  • 3 Tbs Stone Ground Mustard
  • 3 Tbs Sherry Vinegar – or any type of wine vinegar
  • ¼ C REAL Maple Syrup
  • 2 tsp rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp black pepper
  • Garnish – black cracked pepper parsley or chives

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil and top with baking rack that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick spray (the Aluminum foil and spray are a MUST – this is a messy recipe).
  • Cut the Andouille sausage down the middle lengthwise. Then cut each half into 1 inch pieces. Cut the 1 lb of bacon into 3rds. Wrap one bacon around each piece of sausage and secure with a toothpick. Set these aside while you make the glaze.
  • In a small saucepan, combine all the other ingredients (except the garnish). Heat over low heat and stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Keep sauced warmed on stove top. Set aside ¼ cup of the glaze for the final glaze application.
  • Brush each bacon wrapped sausage with the glaze and set on the baking sheet/rack. Bake for a total of 40 minutes, remove the pan from the oven every 15 minutes and baste with the glaze. On removing from the oven, use a spoon and drizzle a small amount of the glaze that you set aside onto each bacon wrapped sausage bite. (don’t use the basting brush you had already been using as it has probably touched the raw bacon you started out with and this application will not be going back in the oven). Serve immediately.

Notes

Use the Andouille sausage that you find near the keilbasa sausage.  If you use the andouille packed in casing, these won't turn out right. 
If you would like to have some yourself, you might want to reserve a few, they go really fast!
