A good friend, we used to have a lot of parties and would have lots of hors d'oeuvres. This one was a favorite of everyone. We always doubled the recipe and all would be eaten. Easy to make and you can freeze leftovers if you are lucky enough to have any. I us more bourbon than the recipe list for.
- 1 (14 ounce) bottle tomato ketchup
- 3⁄4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 3⁄4 cup Bourbon (I use Tennessee Jack Daniel's # 07)
- 2 (16 ounce) packages frankfurters, and cut into 1 inch chunks (See Note)
- Note: I use 4- 8 ounce packages of miniature cocktail frankfurters.
- When I cook the sauce thoroughly I put into a crock pot and then put the frankfurters in and heat.
- You then have everything ready to go if you are taking this item to someone else's party.
- In a large saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar and bourbon; stir until well blended.
- Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.
- Add frankfurters and simmer until heated thoroughly, about 5 minutes.
This is an easy, tasty recipe that makes a LOT. I did use the miniature cocktail frankfurters and will take the suggestion of using regular-size ones (cut-up) next time, as I don't think they really absorbed the flavor of the sauce.
I wanted to do something different with the franks then the traditional boiling the franks. I came across this recipe and tried it. It was not only easy to make, but it was a hit. My family loved it. I did not have enough ketchup so I substituted it with tomatoe sauce. I served it over rice. Great meal.
I love these! I have the same recipe hand-written in my recipe box from a friend of mine. Have made it for several functions and it gets great comments. It has an unusual flavor because of the burbon...very tasty. I would also suggest that people not use those popular mini sausages as they don't soak up the sauce as well as the traditional hot dogs cut up. :-)
