This is so easy. I make it each year for my Christmas buffet and it is always one of the first dishes to disappear!
- 1 (12 ounce) bottle chili sauce (I use Heinz)
- 1 cup grape jelly
- 1 -3 lb Little Smokies sausage (cocktail sausages)
- Mix all ingredients.
- Cook in crockpot for one hour or on stove top for 30 minutes.
- (I personally like mine to cook slowly for a longer time until sauce thickens and is clinging to the sausages.).
I was a little wary of this - wasn't sure about the grape jam and chili sauce but it really is great. You can't tell it's grape jam and it adds a slightly sweet flavor to them. I thought it was excellent.
Love these. I have even used sliced smoked sausage in a pinch. Wieners work too.
This sauce works great for meatballs too. I get so many compliments and requests for the recipe - it's almost embaressing. You can use the frozen meatballs and add them to the sauce while it's cooking. Enjoy!
