This easy Instant Pot Little Smokies recipe makes the best appetizer! Yummy ingredients combine to make a flavorful and easy sauce everyone will enjoy.

This often requested family favorite appetizer shows up at most of our holiday gatherings. It comes together quickly in the Instant Pot and offers delicious flavor thanks to the simple homemade sauce. You can make little smokies in the crockpot, too!If you’re planning a party or a get together with family or friends, I love pairing these Little Smokies with an appetizer menu that includes cream cheese dip and buffalo chicken meatballs.

Little Smokies Recipe

Food is a love language in my family. Time spent in the kitchen together preparing meals and then around the table enjoying those meals are some of my favorite ways to show my love and create memories.

Whenever we’re headed to a get-together, someone always asks for me to bring a special recipe. I think it’s a hazard of my job. I’ve found that this lil smokies recipe is one that everyone loves. And as a busy mom, I love how easy it is to make!

You only need four ingredients, 20 minutes and an Instant Pot to make the magic happen.

It’s a great option if you have last-minute guests or are busy trying to make a dish from scratch. (I also love these deviled eggs for this reason.)

What Can You Make with Lil Smokies?

Serve with croissants or by themselves.

If you’re serving these at a party, you might want to double the recipe. In my experience, they go quick.

I’ve also kept these warm at a party in a crockpot, which works well.

When I’m serving for dinner here at home, I make mashed potatoes or mac and cheese to go along with them.We’ll eat a caesar salad along with it for a delicious and simple meal.

Our whole gang loves how flavorful the easy sauce is. I love serving a meal that I know they’ll enjoy so much. And it’s so simple to make!

These lil smokies are a huge win in this mama’s book.

      I’m sure you could. I haven’t done it specifically that way – only in the Instant Pot. Good luck, I hope you enjoy them!

    Do you cook these on the high pressure setting or low pressure? 20 minutes seems like a long time for this on high pressure, but I could be wrong. Thanks!
