1 (14 ounce) bottle
dark brown sugar
prepared yellow mustard (such as French's®)
2 (16 ounce) packages
cocktail-size smoked link sausages (such as Hillshire Farm Lit'l Smokies ®)
I exchanged 5 oz of the ketchup for bbq sauce and added 5 drops of tabasco sauce. I had read that someone thought it was to ketchupy and what I did corrected that. They went fast!
I did not care for this at all. Too much katchup flavor. I ended up putting more brown sugar in to it and reheated it. This was very salty, so I feel I need to balance out the salt with more sugar. I do like the cinnamon and cloves but I'll have to find another way to incorporate the spices within a different recipe.
Delicious, and very easy to make! Used 1 cup of ketchup, and 3/4 a cup of Barbecue Sauce.
This sauce is so good! I love the cinnamon and clove addition. Adds just the right amount of spice.
I got the courage to go with this recipe with the unusual ingredients of cinnamon and cloves.... glad I did. This is slightly different from your typical BBQ sauce type dish - and certainly not Italian. Rather a tangy/sweet flavor. Since this was an appetizer for a pot luck party - wasn't looking for a meal - rather tidbits with a different flavor. It was a hit........
Yum! I made it exactly how stated and love the taste. It's different than the typical bbq sauce & jelly recipe that people tend to do but in a very good way. Everything blends together nicely and it's not ketchupy at all. I always make this in a crock-pot since I bring this to my work pot-lucks. I mix all the sauce ingredients in a seperate bowl and pour over the Lit'l Smokies, then stir to coat them. I cover and turn on high for about 2 hours until heated through and then turn to low to keep warm while serving all while stirring occasionally. It's a keeper in my recipe collection!!
Delicious! I was skeptical of the cinnamon and cloves, but they really made the sauce tasty. I doubled all the ingredients except for the ketchup, and it wasn't too ketchupy tasting. My husband (a huge little smokie fan) loved it!
It was okay. Better after many hours of soaking in the sauce. It still carried that ketchup taste. Not sure what I'd do differently. Great in a pinch since most of the ingredients are in your kitchen.
