W4DW-Hot Dog Snacks

The holidays are rapidly approaching and I am still harvesting soybeans.  I love get togethers with friends and family, but with my hectic farm schedule sometimes I don't get the time I want (or need) to cook.  Growing up a favorite appetizer in my family was Weiner Snacks.  I have no idea where my parents got this recipe.  We have made it for Christmas Eve, New Year's or any other time we had appetizers.

I love this recipe because it is quick and easy.  The boys can help put them together and it goes in the oven.  Then we have time to finish getting ready or finish cleaning the house.  My boys love this when we have company over for a party.

Hot Dog Snacks

1 (16 oz) package hot dogs or water chestnuts can be used as well
1 (16 oz) package bacon
1/2 cup grape jelly
1/2 cup maple syrup
1 cup brown sugar

Cut hot dogs and bacon into thirds.  Wrap each piece of hot dog with a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.  Place in an oven proof casserole dish.  Heat jelly, syrup, and brown sugar in small saucepan.  Pour over hot dogs.  Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.  Keep warm in a crock pot if it will be awhile before you serve.
