1 (16 ounce) package
little smokie sausages
1 (8 ounce) jar
1 (8 ounce) jar
Tasted great. Only suggestion I have is to halve the sauce. I used a 56 ounce package of Smokies, so I thought I would need roughly 25 ounces each of the cocktail sauce and the grape jelly. Turns out a 12 ounce jar of cocktail sauce and a 15 ounce jar of grape jelly made more than enough for all those sausages.
This was not a hit! Usually around here if it has wienies in it it's a hit. Maybe it was the cocktail wieners, not sure yet. I have frozen the sauce and plan to try it with meatballs?????
I have several variations I make on this recipe; I heat up the ingredients in a microwaveable bowl 1st, then switch it to the crockpot to keep warm for serving. For The Grandchildren: DO NOT use cocktail sauce -- instead I add to taste a couple tablespoons of prepared yellow mustard, & a standard BBQ sauce...
I substituted a bottle of chili sauce instead of cocktail sauce & used 2 packages of little smokies...delicious!
we used to have this when I was a kid. Everyone devours this. Mom always made this in a crock pot and let it simmer at least an hour or two before putting on the buffet table so the meat could really soak up the flavor of the sauce. Works great with Kielbasa as well(thats how Mom liked it best).
What a great variation to the bar-b-que sauce recipe. I like this so much better. If you can get pass the cocktail sauce and grape jelly try adding a can of drained pineapple chunks. It's so good! Thanks Judy for the recipe!
Don't be put off by the grape jelly!! and don't be afraid to try other variations. I have used red current preserves and added to it about 1/2 cup of barby sauce (any kind), even a couple tablespoons of honey, I'm going to try a dash of A-1 steak sauce in it, too!!! This is GREAT!!!
when i first made this up for our family get together this weekend. i tasted the sauce just after it "melted" together. and i thought. wow this is way to tangy. oh well i dont have time to redo it....... I AM SOOOOOOO GLAD I DIDNT!!!!!!!!! the longer this heated in the crock pot the better it got!! the tang went away. and blended together perfectly !!! was a huge hit at the party!! thanks for a great recipe!!
