Saucy Wieners (a re-post)

This is one of the fastest going appetizers I have ever brought to a party, and I've been making it for many years. I have also used it with meatballs with the same plate-licking results!

2 pkg.s Lil Smokies
1 1/2 c. ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
 *The original recipe called for 1/8-1/4 cup bourbon. You won't miss it if you choose to leave it out.

Mix altogether.

Cook the Little Smokies,  until browned and heated through in a skillet.

Place wieners (and fat from skillet ) into a crock pot and pour sauce over and mix well. Keep warm in crockpot.

And here's another one to try with the same sauce:

* You may also add your favorite meatball recipe OR brown 1 bag of frozen in the skillet and serve the same way. Or mix meatballs and wieners together after browning and pour sauce over.  It's always a hit.


  1. That's all? Easy recipes are the best!! I laughed at the secret trading of the recipe. Alchohol is how we get those wonderful flavors. We just need to convince churches. :)

  2. Oh the girls at the monthly Ladies Luncheon will love this one!

  3. CP-Yes, that's it, and I'm telling you they're delicious. ANd everyone brings the wieners in chili sauce and grape jelly, which is also good, but these are fantastic!

    kathy- I guarantee it!

  4. sounds so tasty... will have to try it!

  5. Yowza, this sounds delicious!
