Serves 36 pcs | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup apricot preserves
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
12 medium size or 6 large sausages*
12 slices bacon
*One slice of bacon should cover the link when wound end to end. For dinner-size sausages, use 2 pieces of bacon.

In a medium bowl, stir together the apricot preserves, jalapenos, and cayenne. Set aside.

Cut a deep slit lengthwise into each of the sausages without cutting all the way through. Spread some of the apricot mixture into the slit of each sausage.

Wind a strip of bacon around the sausages and transfer them to a broiler pan.

Bake them in a preheated 375 degree oven until the sausages are heated through and the bacon is crisp, about 20 minutes.

Broil the sausages for the last few minutes of cooking, if desired.

Cut each sausage into 3-6 equal pieces; spear with a pick and serve warm.

Makes 36 appetizers.
