The kids and men just loved these things. I ate a couple but I have to admit I am not a fan of these sausages. They were good but sweeter than I am used to. But as I said, the kids and guys just gobbled them up just 'yummy' and lots of great comments.
I guess this one gets raves reviews as it has been pinned on pinterest some 22,000+ times! The group loved them so in the keeper file. They are easy to throw together and make a quick snack or appetizer. I purchased the sausages and bacon on sale so in all honesty, it made a lot and was economical, too.
Good morning Linda, and a belated Merry Christmas to you. I've had those before where they weren't super sweet and did like them. Maybe there are similar recipes that don't have quite so much sugar. I still want to try the one my sis loves and wrap the lil' smokies in the crescent rolls and bake.
Thank-you for your review, bet my hubby would love these too, might just be a guy & kid thing...lol. Wow, 22,000 times, that's a lot!
Thank you Linda! These would be a big hit here. Already building my file for Super Bowl Sunday :)

I can see where these may be on the sweet side but good man food! I'm like Jolene, always on the lookout for Super Bowl recipes. Thanks so much for posting.

Thanks for peeking in here, Ladies. The review should have just been keeper~everyone seemed to love them. I made so many of those sausages when the kids were growing up, I think I just was burned out on them~but not them. And for the grandkids, all the recipes are new to them~lol
You are right about the food for the Super Bowl as I am sure these will be points for the home team...The way they were disappearing, I know I will be making them again.
Gm Everyone, Hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas. Love super Sundays.
Linda, I have seen this one sooooooooooo many times. The presentation is wonderful. !
But in all honestly I thought they might be a tad sweet too. I'd still love to give it a try.
Thanks for sharing your Candid Review ! I'll will work around it. I was thinking about cutting hot dogs into thirds , therefore replacing the smokies?
I just cannot get past that awesome photo !

Janie, they look just like the picture, too. The taste of the sausage sets it apart from hot dogs but it just might work. They sell those little tiny hot dogs like the tiny sausages. There are about 34 or so sausages in a package so it makes a bunch. If your bacon is a smaller package, you might have to have some extra on hand.
When I make them again, I do think I will cut back on the sugar just to see if all of it is necessary but again, that is just my opinion as everyone else thought they were great.
Morning Ladies and belated Merry Christmas Linda ! My guys would loves these and bet Max would even get a taste!
Thanks for sharing.
Hey partner I always cut and snip whenever I can. " Just Because" . It's now become a Habit.
And I feel like I made it Slightly healthier. lol
I said Slightly !
lol-Thanks to the grandkids, Gracie gave it two paws up, too!
I bet Bob would love these......I think I'd cut down on the brown sugar too. That picture sure does look good.
Thanks for sharing the link, Linda,
I think I could enjoy these. I just made a big jar of these sausages, pickled. They are a huge success. So smoky with a nice tang.
Might have to whip a batch of these up. I enjoy the combination of smoky/bacony/sweet/ idea.
Hope you had a fabulous Christmas.
