I make these all the time but I bake them in the oven for about 45 mins. The brown sugar gets alittle carmelized like and crispy in places on the smokies and the sauce is yummy. I have never made them in the crockpot but I would imagine you wouldn't get the crispy carmalized stuff in the crockpot as you do the oven. So just wanted to share in case anyone wants to try them in the oven. They are YUMM!!!!
These were very good. I ended up using about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of brown sugar. I think they cooked 4-5 hours on low and they were great. Sweet, smokey and salty. Thanks for the recipe!
so so good! great for weddings too.
I make this recipe all the time and it is a huge hit. Just a few suggestions. I prepare these the night before to let the sugar set in the lil smokies. I then bake them for 45 minutes at 350. They come out perfect every time. Just made them for a work food day and they were gone in 1 hour
These are absolutely delicious! I love how the brown sugar gets crunchy on top! Thanks so much for sharing.
i had these at a new year's eve party - they were delicious & they look super easy - can't wait to make them myself.
I made these for a New Years party and everyone loved them especially my hubby.I baked them in the oven @325 for 25 min. first then put them in crockpot on low.I can't wait to make them again.Next time I think I will try adding some dry mustard to the brown sugar for a lil extra kick!Thank you for a wonderful recipe!!!
My godmother used to make this recipe every holiday season. I made it last week and have some advice: use Brown n Serve Sausages (3 packages) and one package of Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon. Do NOT use cheap bacon... it does not turn out well. If you let the bacon sit for 10 minutes after cutting, it will stretch around the sausages better. Also, using the pre-cooked sausages cuts down on the grease generated.
I made these for a family barbeque and they just flew off the plates! everybody loved them! all the girls in the family are mad at me cause i "made" them break their diets! hahaha
This is an incredible recipe! Perfect for Christmas and New Year's get togethers. And you're right as to how fast they disappear. I always have to triple it.
