Ultimate Bacon-Wrapped Cocktail Wieners
A new twist on a timeless appetizer, these mini hot dogs are complemented with bacon and a sweet & smokey flavored dipping sauce.
- 1 12-ounce bottle Heinz® Chili Sauce
- 1 14-ounce can Ocean Spray® Jellied Cranberry Sauce
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 2 packages (12 to 14 oz.) cocktail wieners or smoked cocktail weiners
- 1 package (1 lb.) bacon, cut into thirds & large pieces cut in half lengthwise
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a large baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together Chili Sauce, Cranberry Sauce and 1/2 cup of syrup until smooth. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, and set aside.
Meanwhile, wrap each wiener with a piece of bacon and place seam side down on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining wieners. Drizzle wieners with remaining 1/2 cup of syrup. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until bacon is crispy. Serve with warm cranberry sauce mixture for dipping sauce.
TIP: If desired, secure bacon with toothpicks before baking.
