Kielbasa for the Big Game

Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great party appetizer that you can make in your slow cooker. I make it every year for the Big Game and it disappears. The ingredients sound like something a child would put together but truly it tastes great. This is an appetizer so it could feed less or more depending on the size of your football fans."

Great! Added 2 tbsp brown sugar and a bit of Worchestershire sauce. Yummy!

I make this with the little "smokies" and it's just great. My family and friend fight over who get's the leftovers.

my grandmother used to make these every family get-together. but instead of bbq sauce she used Heinz chili sauce. its by the cocktail sauce in the supermarket. usually i just add a little red...

The sauce was good and it went well on the little smokies (I used smokies instead of kielbasa, just because I had some little smokies I wanted to get rid of!) and it was good. The sauce was a li...
