Be sure you have plenty of toothpicks; cocktail sausages are more fun to eat when people can just spear them.
This recipe can be made in the oven or in your crockpot. Slow cooker dishes are so convenient, and I always make this recipe in my crockpot, but if you want to use your oven, that works just fine, too.
>2 packages of cocktail sausages (I usually toss a packages of tiny hot dogs in with the sausages)
1 bottle of Craig’s BBQ Sauce
2 tablespoons apricot jam
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
dash black pepper
What to do:
Put the barbecue sauce and apricot jam in a medium mixing bowl, and mix thoroughly. I use a wisk.
Add all the other ingredients, and pour over the sausages.
Turn your crockpot to “low,” and let everything cook for about six hours. (1 hour in a 350-degree oven)
If your crockpot has a lift-out crock, just remove it and place it on the coffee table in front of your football fans. Again, make sure there’s a box of toothpicks handy. Or forks, if you want to be civilized. Put a pot holder under the crock (or casserole dish) to protect your table.
Spicy Texas Cocktail Sausages are really, really good, plus, they’ll fill your whole house with awesome aroma. You have no idea until you do it, how good your house will smell.
You can also use this sauce for meatballs. Or as a condiment for sandwiches. Craig’s BBQ Sauce is really versatile.
However, there’s just something about the SuperBowl that requires BBQ sauce, isn’t there. Well, we think so!
