  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a large baking dish with aluminum foil.
  2. Stir cayenne pepper into brown sugar in a bowl. Wrap each smoked sausage in a piece of bacon; secure each with a toothpick. Arrange wrapped sausages into prepared baking dish. Pack brown sugar around wrapped sausages to cover by about 1/2 inch. Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Increase oven heat to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Remove aluminum foil from pan.
  4. Continue baking in the hot oven until brown sugar has melted and thickened, 30 to 40 minutes.


  • Partner tip: Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is AMAZING! Make sure you line the baking dish with foil or be prepared to soak it. Why are things that taste so good so bad for you?
