Football season is officially underway, and while our household isn't really into sports, I love the snack foods which normally accompany the game. This recipe is one of the recipes which my family enjoyed at get-togethers as well as on New Years watching the parades (along with our Peanut-Free Puppy Chow). My husband had these for the first time at my mom's house, so after we got married, I made him a batch. I succeeded! While these are normally just a snack food, we sometimes eat them with a meal (or, sometimes, as a meal!)
BBQ Little Smokies
- 2 pounds little smokies
- 1 (16 oz) jar of BBQ sauce
- 1 (16 oz) jar of grape jelly
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
Put everything into a slow cooker and cook on Low for 1 hour or until smokies are nice and hot.
Super simple, right? Sorry about not having an exact time for you guys. I forgot to write down how long it took for mine to get to the right hotness, but I know it was a tad bit longer than an hour. If you're serving these at a party or something, you can just leave them in the slow cooker and leave it on low, or on warm if yours has that setting.
Also, you may have noticed that I only used a pound of little smokies. Since there's only 2 of us eating this, I didn't think I really needed to make the whole thing. You may see this from time to time, but the techniques are still the same and I'll put the original recipe up instead of halfing it. :)
What's your favorite game-day food? Do you prefer to go tailgating or stay in the comfort of your (or someone else's) home?
