Upgrade your backyard hotdogs with these bacon-wrapped grilled sausages on a baguette. Dress them up with sauerkraut, some of our sweet and spicy Apricot Barbecue Sauce and a dab of our homemade Yellow Mustard.

Yield: Makes 4.



  • 1 baguette
  • Canola oil*
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 4 mild Italian sausages (about 100 g each)
  • Deli Swiss cheese slices*
  • Drained sauerkraut*
  • Apricot Barbecue Sauce or barbecue sauce*
  • Yellow Mustard*


  1. Preheat natural gas barbecue on medium heat. Meanwhile, cut ends off of baguette and reserve for another use. Cut baguette crosswise into four pieces. Without cutting all the way through, cut each baguette piece in half lengthwise. Lightly brush oil over baguette pieces, including cut sides.
  2. Open baguette pieces and grill over medium heat on natural gas barbecue, turning once, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Beginning with 1 slice, wrap each sausage, spiral fashion, with 2 slices of bacon.
  4. Grill bacon-wrapped sausages over medium heat, turning occasionally, until bacon is crisp and sausages are completely cooked, about 25 - 30 minutes.
  5. Serve in baguette pieces with cheese, sauerkraut, Apricot Barbecue Sauce and Yellow Mustard.
