Bacon Wrapped Hotdog bites

Hot dogs wrapped in bacon!

I made them to offset the vegetarian quesadillas we were having last night.  (which were very good by the way).
I made them as a joke for the meat eaters, (I mean hot dogs wrapped in bacon?  A complete FATfest) but they were really a great little appetizer.  I'll make them again .

I found the recipe in a Better Homes and Gardens Special Publication magazine, called  "Mixing"    I had all the stuff in my fridge, so I just whipped them out yesterday, right before dinner---for balance  (besides the veggie quesadillas we had spicy gazpacho with shrimp--all that being too healthy for the Handyman).

The brown sugar made a wonderfully sweet glaze over the crispy bacon--and then you bit into the hot dog.   Mmmmmm.  Very good.

Bacon Hot Dog Bites

1 pound hot dogs
1 pound bacon
1 cup brown sugar

Cut each hot dog into quarters.  Wrap each piece with  1/3 slice of bacon.  Pack tightly in a shallow baking pan. Sprinkle brown sugar generously over all.
Bake at  350 F for one hour, or until bacon is cooked. Pour off the excess fat before using spatula to place onto a serving tray.
(If desired, use a toothpick to secure bacon before cooking)
