We make them with 1 cup of ketchup, 1 cup of grape jelly and 16 ounces of lil smokies. I put them in the crockpot until the jelly melts. I serve them with crackers. This is more of an appetizer recipe but I serve them as supper, on movie night, with fresh vegies, other snacks or leftovers.
We also use them as an appetizer , 1 jar chili saucce 1/2 jar grape jelly and smokies in crockpot until thickened. You can also do this recipe on the stovetop, just simmer on low. This same recipe is fantastic with meatballs instead of smokies.
We make them into a dressed up version of pigs-in-a-blanket. You can use them as the meat option in soups (veggie, chowder, etc). I used them in the marinara last night (it was leftover sundried tomato-basil that didn't get eaten on Sunday). I also use sausages (normally leftovers) diced up in potato casserole or scrambled eggs.
