Bacon Wrapped Sausage with Blue Cheese dip

The Preparation

  • 24 mini sausage or whole sausage cut in half
  • 6 slices bacon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For The Blue Cheese Sauce:

  • 5 ounces blue cheese (2 ounces for garnish)
  • 1/2 cup 2% fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste

For the blue cheese sauce, melt 2 ounces of blue cheese in a small bowl, then combine with Greek yogurt and mix thoroughly.  Add lemon juice, salt, milk, and chopped parsley, then incorporate fully.  Crumble in 1 additional ounce of blue cheese for texture, and gently mix this into the sauce so the crumbles remain intact.  Salt and pepper to taste.

The Execution

  1. Preheat oven to 375F. Start by slices of bacon into quarter-pieces, so you have 24 quarter-slices of bacon. Place a little sausage on top of the slice of bacon.
  2. Roll the little sausage up in the bacon so that there is a small amount of overlap and stick a toothpick into them.
  3. Set on a cookie sheet covered with foil and bake for 25 minutes or until crispy.
  4. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly, then serve.
