You Had Me At Bacon

Delicious bacon wrapped Polish sausage. For most people when you mention these delicious treats you will have them at bacon! This incredible delight was inspired by my friend Jr who used to get these in his younger military days and loved them so much he wanted to make them for us. After a trip to the big wholesale store, Jr came back with a huge package of delicious Polish sausage. We were contemplating grilling them for dinner when Jr opened the fridge and pulled out the Polish sausage and a package of bacon. “Toothpicks,” he said, and he went to the pantry and grabbed those as well. Before we knew it we were all standing there wrapping two pieces of bacon around these lovely Polish Sausages. Now I cannot get enough of these.
