Sweet Smoked Sausage Appetizers

This tasty smoked sausage appetizer is made by wrapping smoked sausage in bacon, adding onion and bell pepper, and pouring over a sweet and sticky sauce. These smoked sausage appetizers go equally well at a barbecue as at a formal sit down dinner and their flavor is amazing.

If you like sausage, you will love this sweet and sour sausage appetizer. It has quite a long cooking time so you can be getting on with other things while this delicious appetizer bakes. This is one of the most easy party appetizers if you want to make something, which cooks itself and frees up your time and the juicy, tangy flavor of the finished smoked sausage appetizer is really gorgeous.

If you are using a fatty bacon, you might want to check the appetizer partway through the cooking time and pour off some of the grease.
