With all the festive cheers around the corner, parties and potlucks are here! Festive seasons are the perfect excuse to indulge, have fun and create happy and delicious memories with family, loved ones and friends. I for one, loves to throw parties. In fact I still do every year during festive times. It’s also my excuse to cook up a storm and get together with everyone to catch up. I have had endless parties where I have cook everything from scratch and it takes time and planning for it. Over the years, I have also learn to make things that are simple and can be prepared ahead. No point in slaving over the stove on the day itself and get yourself so tired that you cannot enjoy your own party.
This festive holiday, I would like to share a very simple recipe that even the most novice cook can whip up in no time at all. Not necessary the healthiest recipe but let me reassure you how yummy this one is. It’s great as an appetizer or snack at small or big parties or potlucks. Diners of all ages can’t resist picking up one to try. Once they tried, they tend to go back for more. And since I have made this several times at my parties, this dish is always the first to be polish off. It probably takes less time to devour this dish than for me to make it!
Bacon, it’s like the ultimate porky ingredient of most foodies. I swear that bacon can make any dish delicious when cook right. For this holiday, I am combining my favorite LINGHAM’S chili sauce with bacon in LINGHAM’s Mini Chili Honey Bacon Dogs! You get familiar taste of LINGHAM’s spicy and sticky sweet flavours working its magic with salty and moreish bacon notes. It’s also great with cocktails, beers or anything for that matter.
The recipe is super simple and has only 5 ingredients. You can even prepare this in advance and baked it on the day of the party. You can also switch up the ingredients easily. If it makes you feel better, serve them with raw vegetables of carrots, cucumbers or cherry tomatoes. The recipe can also be easily double or triple up. Easy, effortless and pretty addictive. Serve them hot or cold, they still taste yummy… take my advice, make a big batch of this and it still won’t be enough!

LINGHAM’s Mini Chili Honey Dogs
12 cocktail hotdogs (or sausages)
6 bacon rashers
2 tbsp LINGHAM’s Original Chili Sauce
2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce (optional)
Preheat oven to 200 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
Coat hotdogs with Worcestershire sauce. If you are not using this, just skip the step.
Cut bacon into two to wrap the hotdogs.
Secure the bacon with toothpicks to the hotdog firmly so it doesn’t unwrap when baking.
Drizzle honey all over the bacon wrapped hotdogs.
Drizzle on LINGHAM’s chili sauce over the bacon wrapped hotdogs.
Mix well to coat all the hotdogs.
Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.
Take them out and turn them over and spoon the sauces from the tray over the hotdogs again.
Bake them again for another 10 minutes, watching during the last few minutes to make sure they don’t burn.
Remove and serve. If there is access sauce on the tray, spoon the sticky sauce over the hotdogs.
Extra Notes and Tips
- Try it with LINGHAM’s other variation of chili sauces – Thai, Garlic, Ginger or Extra Hot
- Use Maple Syrup instead of Honey for richer sweetness
- Use your favorite sausages instead of hotdogs
- Add more honey and chili sauce to your liking
- Each oven is slightly different so adjust your oven temperature accordingly
- Try making them for BBQ party where you prepare everything and grill them over fire
