Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. There are many things I enjoy about it – but one of the best things about fall? It’s tailgate season! Whether we are cheering on our favorite teams from the sofa, or grilling up some food in the parking lot before the big game, football is a whole lot about the FOOD!
We have some of our tailgate favorites that I go back to year after year, but I try to make something new each game, too. Depending on what time the game is, and what the weather is like, I change up the menu. These little bites of yumminess fit the bill for this weekend’s game perfectly!
I made up a batch this weekend for snacking, and made extras that I froze to take to tailgate this weekend.
This recipe only uses 4 ingredients. Farmland Bacon, Farmland Smoked Sausage, pineapple and brown sugar.

These Aloha Bacon Wrapped Sausage Bites would be a great way to help out and make your tummy oh so happy!
Slice the Farmland Smoked Sausage into bite sized pieces, and each piece of bacon into thirds. Stand a sausage bite on it’s side and wrap the bacon around the edge, pulling it tightly, then pressing it around the top and bottom to secure it.
Place each wrapped bite on a cookie sheet, lined with a Silpat mat or foil.
Sprinkle generously with brown sugar.
Top each bite with a piece of fresh pineapple, secure it with a toothpick, and give it a light dusting of brown sugar.
Bake them for 30-40 minutes, or until bacon is done. Serve warm.
I made up an extra batch to take to tailgate. I put them in a foil wrapped pan, and froze them. I will take them along in the cooler, and reheat them on the grill before the game.
I hope that you will take this opportunity to help out the National FFA Organization by purchasing Farmland products this month!
