Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • One 16-ounce package bacon
  • One 13-ounce package cocktail franks, such as Lit'l Smokies

Directions

Special equipment: 48 toothpicks, soaked in water for 15 minutes

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika and cayenne pepper and mix well. Set aside.

Slice the bacon strips into thirds. Wrap each frank with a piece of bacon, secure with a toothpick and place on a baking sheet. Repeat with the remaining franks and bacon. Thoroughly coat each bacon-wrapped frank in the brown sugar mixture and place back on the baking sheet.

Bake until the bacon is crispy, 12 to 15 minutes. The rub has a lot of sugar in it, so make sure to turn halfway through the cooking process so the bottoms do not burn.
