Mini Little Heart Attacks

Recipe courtesy of Mark Short.
    Many of us love bacon and we'll try it numerous ways. I've had it deep fried, candied and wrapped around all kinds of items. This creation was a new one to me - molding sausage around a smokie link and then wrapping bacon around the whole little bomb.
    Anyone with gout should stay away from this creation, but if you have pork on hand and want to try something new, this is an interesting little tidbit. It was a big hit at a recent pot luck at work.

Mini Little Heart Attacks
1/2 pkg. little smokies
1 lb. Bob Evans hot sausage
1/2 lb. bacon, cut strips in half

Preheat oven to 325.
Spray coat baking sheet or dish.
Form sausage into a wad the size of a golf ball.
Wrap sausage around smokie (like a stuffed meatball).
Wrap bacon around sausage and insert toothpick to hold.

Bake in 325 oven for 40 minutes until bacon is crisp. 
Makes a dozen.
