Crock Pot Grape Jelly BBQ Cocktail Sausage appetizer recipe contains buffalo chicken sausage in an easy sweet and savory sauce to serve to guests at your next holiday party!
Recipe type: Appetizer
Cuisine: American
Serves: 8-10
  • 2 12 oz packages fully cooked Zweigle's chicken sausage, sliced on the diagonal (I used Buffalo style)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 cup BBQ sauce
  • ½ cup chili sauce
  • ¾ cup grape jelly
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Saute sausage with the garlic for a few minutes or until slightly browned. Be careful not to let the garlic burn. Transfer browned sausage and garlic to your crock pot/slow cooker.
  3. Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a bowl and pour it over the sausage. Stir to coat the sausage pieces.
  4. Cover. Set slow cooker to low setting and cook for 2-3 hours OR high for 1-2 hours or until sausage is hot inside and sauce is bubbly. Stir once halfway through cooking.
  5. Turn slow cooker to warm setting to keep the sausages warm for as long as you need. Serve with toothpicks. I have also made a dinner out of this and served it over rice. Enjoy!
