A DELICIOUS AND EASY APPETIZER RECIPE

Let me start this post off by saying that we all went wild over these Crock Pot Glazed Sausages. My son kept going back for another bite. Then another. And then another. He normally doesn’t care for cranberry, but in this case, he really had no idea it was one of the ingredients.

CROCK POT GLAZED SAUSAGES APPETIZER OR SNACK!

I make something similar with Meatballs Except that recipe just uses grape jelly and chili sauce or BBQ sauce. This mixture of cranberry and ketchup was a nice change to that recipe. This recipe comes from Gooseberry Patch’s latest cookbook, ‘101 Super-Easy Slow-Cooker Recipes‘. They had my attention at “Super Easy” and “Slow Cooker”!

I have had lots of fun cooking from this cookbook. There is a little something in here for everyone. You’ve got appetizers, main meals, soups and even desserts! I shared another recipe from this cookbook earlier this month if you missed it. It was the Crock Pot Taco Joes. SO good!

INGREDIENTS NEEDED: (FULL RECIPE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE POST)

  • kielbasa
  • mini smoked sausages (Lit’l Smokies)
  • ketchup
  • whole-berry cranberry sauce
  • grape jelly
kielbasa, Lit'l smokies, ketchup, whole berry cranberry sauce, grape jelly.

Note: This makes enough for a crowd. Feel free to cut the recipe in half if you don’t need as much.

HOW TO MAKE GLAZED CROCK POT SAUSAGES:

Place all ingredients into your slow cooker.

Stir to mix well. Cover and cook on the low setting for 4-6 hours. The sausages are already pre-cooked. We’re really just warming them up here and making a yummy sauce for them to bathe in.

Then serve straight from the slow cooker or set them out with toothpicks.

  1. I'm new to crockpot cooking – my hubby is strictly a
    meat/potato man. Tried a recipe off internet for pot roast but was disappointed – meat was still not tender – flavor was delicious. With this crockpot cook book I believe I'd be the apple of my hubby's eyes. Thanks.

  2. I just found my mother's Mulligan Stew Recipe. She passed 5 years ago and I thought I would never see it again. So needless to say, Mulligan Stew is my favorite Slow Cooker recipe, right now.

  3. My favorite slow cooker meal is country style pork ribs. I use the leftovers to make so many yummy things like pulled pork sandwiches and tacos.

  4. I love Pineapple chicken. So easy and delicious!I do cook all kinds of things in my crockpot, one being most any greens.

  5. I would love to learn to love my crockpot. So far I only cook 2 or 3 things in it:( pulled pork is one:)

  6. Tonight my crockpot recipe was super simple = Italian sausage and a mixture of store bought spaghetti sauce and my own frozen sauce made last summer. I needed a quick meal to get the grandkids to a band concert on time. Fifteen minutes before we ate, we made the pasta, veggie, and some garlic bread. Simple and good. For a real recipe in the crockpot, I like Italian beef

  7. I've got some Great Recipes that I already Use I will keep checking back to look for new ones, ( I love soups)
