This is outrageously good. However, you must absolutely ignore a lot of the cooking instructions. The first time I tried this recipe, I used center-cut bacon, cooked for 50 minutes at 350, and it came out like bacon-flavored shoe leather. So here is the skinny on how to make these puppies live up to their hype. Do NOT use center-cut bacon. You can only cut the bacon in halves, and it still over-wraps the sausages, as well as really driving up the costs. To control the grease, use a good quality of bacon, like Oscar Meyer, and cook on a broiling pan, or place a baking rack inside of a regular baking sheet. It is also a great idea to thread your sausages on inexpensive kabob skewers, with NO crowding, for easy turning. You also want to put a good wrap of aluminum foil on the bottom of your cooking pan, because the caramelized sugar and grease makes one heckuva mess. OK, now you are all set for the cooking part, so here it is. Preheat the oven to 375. Sprinkle the prepared sausages with extra sugar. Cook for 10 minutes, and turn over (using your skewers for an easy flip). Sprinkle the new topside with additional sugar and cook for 10 more minutes. Increase oven temperature to 450, cook for 2-4 minutes until nicely browned. Flip again, sprinkle with sugar, and cook the new topside for 2-4 minutes. Yummy. If you want to prepare these ahead to serve at a party, simply heat everything later in the microwave, and it will still be delicious. Enjoy!
