Little Smokies

Does anyone have a tried and true Little Smokies recipe for the crock? We plan on serving these for a holiday party next month. I want one with a semi-thick sauce and I'm pretty sure it's supposed to contain grape jam/jelly.

Thanks for any help!

My mom has done this before on the stovetop using equal parts grape jelly and chili sauce. I'm not sure, though, how/if one would adjust this for the crock.

Crock Pot Weenies

1/2C. firmly packed brown sugar
2tsp. soy sauce
1C. ketchup
1tsp. of Dijon mustard (half the time I just use 1 tsp. of dried mustard)
1C. water
1-2 clove(s) garlic, minced
1 large pack of Little Smokies

Put ketchup, brown sugar, water, soy sauce, mustard and garlic in crock & cook on High around 4 hours then add franks and cook another 2 hours. If you cook it on low you can set the sauce the night before and let it cook all night and then throw the franks in and let them cook a couple hours before the party.

Note. Some people like the franks just warmed up, but I like them a little soggy! :)

Oh, obviously mine doesn't have the jelly ..... ;) But I've used this one and gotten good marks for it. ;)

Sounds interesting, I may have to try this one sometime, but the one I'm really craving has the grape jelly! Thanks!

My husband's "Super Secret Family Recipe" :)
We do equal amounts of grape jelly and Pace Medium Picante Salsa.

Heat the little smokies in a frying pan (this removes more grease than you want to know), put into crock pot. In drained pan, mix jelly and salsa. If you're feeling adventurous, add a little brown sugar and worsheshire sauce. Mix it all together in the crock pot.

My favorite combination is Strawberry jam (not jelly) and get the cheapest generic one you can find at your grocery store, don't shell out the cash for Smuckers on this recipe. Then get some bottled cocktail sauce, and put that, the jam, and (if you like) a little splash of vodka. Put the crock on and let that stuff kinda melt together for 20 minutes or so and then add the lil' smokies. Let it all go on medium heat for about 4 hours or more and mmmmmm-mmmmm! :)

ALso, you can use chili sauce instead of cocktail. It's really a preference. :)

This recipe is delicious
This is based off a recipe for sweet and sour meatballs, but when I made it last, I was thinking about how good it would be with little smokies. I served this at a housewarming party and there was nothing left afterwards.

1 (16 ounce) can sauerkraut
1 (16 ounce) can jellied cranberry sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 (8 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce
