Sausage-Bacon Bites with Brown Sugar Glaze
It’s been said that sides can make the meal. While that may not be entirely true, these sides will hold their own on any breakfast table.
FOR THE GLAZE, COMBINE—
FOR THE SAUSAGE-BACON BITES, SLICE—
You can assemble the sausage bites a day ahead. Refrigerate until ready to roast in the oven.
Preheat oven to 375°. Line a baking sheet with foil and top with a cooling rack. Lightly coat rack with nonstick spray.
_For_ the glaze, combine brown sugar, mustard, vinegar, and pepper in a small saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves; keep warm.
_For_ the sausage-bacon bites, slice kielbasa in half lengthwise. Cut each half into twelve 11/2-inch-thick pieces. Wrap bacon around each piece and secure with a toothpick. Brush each bite with sauce, then transfer to prepared baking sheet.
Roast bites, basting them every 15 minutes, until bacon is cooked through, 35–40 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately.
Wrap kielbasa with thin-sliced bacon because it will crisp and fully cook in the allotted roasting time.
Generously coat the bites with glaze before roasting and lightly again halfway through roasting.
