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
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, paprika and cayenne pepper and mix well. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
