Toddler BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by gourmetmomma

My children want to eat barbecue with the grownups, but find the sauces too spicy. I use this as a dipping (mop) sauce for them with little sausages or cooked chicken strips to give them a child-friendly BBQ. It is originally a sauce for meatballs, but the kids think it is versatile for other things. Obviously, this is also a sauce that works with meatballs or little sausages in a crockpot for party appetizers.

I made this up for my DH as a quick sauce for his hamburger. Well, he loved it! He said,"This is really different! I like it! 5 stars!" He doesn't like stuff too spicy, so this was perfect for him. Thank you!
