I made these for my daughter's birthday dinner and they were a big hit. Very simple to make but they only sat for a couple of hours before baking. I bought original Jimmy Dean sausage but turkey would work fine to lighten it up. It took 40 minutes to get them nice and gooey browned and crispy!!

Made half the recipe to try and they were gone in a heartbeat. I used turkey sausage links. Very good and easy.

This made a great last minute after school snack for a house unexpectedly filled with tween boys! Obviously. Didn't wait 4 hours. But I was voted best mom that afternoon!

served these at a brunch. I should have made a double batch. I used less brown sugar than called for. Just sprinkled after baking.

So delicious! I've made them a few times and everyone loves them. It is a very simple recipe - I was trying to think of something easy to make for a party today and when I thought of these I knew they were perfect!

WOW! This recipe is simple quick and packs a punch with amazing flavor! Christmas Eve this year was COMFORT FOOD and my sister brought these to the party! She hadn't even hung up her coat in the closet when everyone started raving about them. Inside of one hour her TRIPLE recipe of these wonderful little sausage bacon bites were gone! I will be making them soon and often!!

I have made this twice; it is excellent. However unless I am doing something wrong here, 3/4 lb bacon isn't enough. There is way more sausage. I made this twice, and forgot to have extra bacon on hand the second time, and had the same problem again.
