You’ll need:

  • 1 cup of BBQ sauce
  • ¾ cup of grape jelly
  • 2 (16-ounce) packages of cocktail sausages

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

BARBECUE SAUCE: Any type of BBQ sauce will work for this easy appetizer recipe, so if you have a favorite brand, I recommend using that. I personally love Sweet Baby Ray’s! You could also make a homemade BBQ sauce to use if you prefer.

GRAPE JELLY: Any brand of grape jelly will do for this recipe. Just as with the BBQ sauce, you can use homemade grape jelly if you prefer!

STEP ONE: Pour all of your ingredients into the crockpot and stir together to coat the cocktail sausages.

STEP TWO: Cook on low heat for 4 to 6 hours.

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS:

If you are in a hurry, you can also cook them on high for 2 to 3 hours.

cook the Crockpot Cocktail Links on high for 2-3 minutes

STEP THREE: Serve the mini cocktail sausages with toothpicks or cocktail forks and enjoy!

PRO TIP:

You can keep the sausages on a warm setting in your slow cooker for a couple of hours while you are entertaining.

How To Serve

These little sausage bites make a delicious appetizer and are a real crowd-pleaser at holiday parties or for a game-day party. Serve alongside our cucumber bites and stuffed mushrooms.

In need of a few more easy-to-make appetizers? Grape jelly meatballs are another tasty crockpot recipe, and our barbecue sausage bites are tangy and full of flavor.

Storage

IN THE FRIDGE: Storage for your cocktail wieners is as simple as the recipe itself. Simply pop them into an airtight container and put them in the fridge for 2 to 3 days. To reheat, place them in the microwave, making sure to get a good amount of sauce!

IN THE FREEZER: We don’t recommend freezing these sausages after they are made. You can freeze the sausages and then thaw them and add them to your slow cooker when you are ready to serve them.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are the sausages fully cooked?

These little sausages are fully cooked and only need to be warmed up before serving.

Does it matter what kind of barbecue sauce I use in this recipe?

Pick your favorite BBQ sauce for this recipe. Any kind will be delicious.

Why is the sauce watery?

If your sauce in this easy recipe is watery, add a bit of cornstarch or flour to the sauce and give it a stir, you should be able to thicken it up!
