  2. Cut bacon strips into thirds and wrap each mini sausage in bacon.
  3. Line your little soldiers up in a 9x13 pan and set aside.
  4. In a microwave safe bowl, or a saucepan on the stove, heat your butter until melted. Mix in ONE cup of the brown sugar and hot sauce (Warm Your Cold, Dead Fart) until combined.
  5. Pour butter mixture all over your lil piggies then sprinkle everything with the remaining cup of brown sugar.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes and then broil for 5 minutes (watch carefully because unwanted fires are not cool) to crisp the bacon a bit more.

From the kitchen of Ancho Amanda: This right here…. this is my jam. Whether it’s a family gathering or Ron’s annual 4th of July party you can almost guarantee that I’ll be making a variation of crack weenies. This is one of those recipes that you make once and then you remember it forever so turn on your brain camera!

Paula Deen’s heaven

Get your oven going with a 375 degree preheat and get your bacon slices cut up into thirds. Wrap that beautiful fatty goodness around your tiny sausages (grow up) and place seam side down in your pan.

Wrapped piggies

I melted my stick of butter in the microwave but that’s just because I didn’t want to clean out a saucepan. You can use whichever method makes you giddy. Stir in your brown sugar and ginger reaper sauce. Per most of these recipes you can mix in as much or as little of the sauce as you would like. We’re just here to put the idea in your head, so run with it you beautiful pfffting unicorn! Seriously though, like half a bottle should be fine.

Pop your piggies in the oven for 25 minutes and then broil for about 5 more to crisp up the bacon (seriously tho, please watch it because sugar and high heat can get dangerous).

Eatin’ piggies

I don’t know why I was surprised by how tasty this flavor combination was on top of an already phenomenal snack. Super easy, a lil’ spicy, a lil’ smoky, and fairly quick so get cooking!
