1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
TOTAL TIME: 0:45
1. Preheat oven to 350° and line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper. Pat mini hot dogs dry with paper towel and wrap with bacon. Place on baking sheet seam side down.
2. In a medium bowl, combine maple syrup with brown sugar and cayenne pepper. Brush onto mini hot dogs and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Serve.
1 cup maple sugar
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup salt
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 teaspoon black pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and taste. If opting for a spicier rub, add cayenne pepper a little bit at a time. Taste, and add more if needed. Use immediately.
2. If making ahead of time, store in an air tight container in a cool cupboard for up to 6 months. Do not store any rub that has come into contact with raw meat.
