Holiday Cocktail Little Smokies




It doesn't seem like it's the holiday season until someone brings these gems to the party!

I'm not really big on this appetizer.

I've never really been impressed with small cocktail sized smokies in a bbq sauce.

Now!  There are other ways I like these done,

like wrapped in bacon,

or phyllo dough,

or even a crescent roll.

But not swimming in a sauce that I usually don't like.

So when the Mr. suggested we do a small snack break at the office,

and thought these would be good,

I went to searching for something different to do!

Do I mix them with grape jelly,

or cranberry sauce,

or pineapple preserves?

The options were great,

but I finally decided on this recipe!

Holiday Cocktail Little Smokies

28-32 oz package of little smokies
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup honey Dijon mustard

Place the little smokies in a crock pot.

In a bowl, mix the brown sugar, ketchup, and honey Dijon mustard together and pour over the little smokies.

Because the little smokies are fully cooked, you just really  need to heat them thoroughly. 

But I go way beyond that!

I heat them, on high, until they are fully heated, then I remove the lid and continue to cook in the crock pot until the sauce thickens.  I like the sauce to stick a bit to the cocktail smokie.

Serve warm.
