This Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Sausage is perfect for any party – especially game day! It will quickly become one of your favorite crock pot pork recipes.
There’s just something about game day makes you want to spend time with good friends. Of course if you’re with friends you have to have good food. The two just go hand in hand.
Hello! It’s Susanne from New South Charm here again this month with another great recipe. This month I’m sharing an easy appetizer to help you make the hit of your next game day party.
This Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Sausage is good. I’m talking you go home with an empty bowl kind of good.
This appetizer has the perfect combination of both savory and sweet. They also pack in just a touch of heat that gives them a little something extra that makes them addictive.
To make begin by drizzling olive oil in the bottom of a medium sauce pan.
Next add garlic and cook until tender and translucent about two mintues
Pour in the chili sauce,grape jelly, red pepper flakes, and sausage to pan and cook for about ten minutes, stirring frequently. Don’t worry if the jelly doesn’t melt completely it will finish melting in the slow cooker.
Slice the sausage into half inch pieces and place in the bowl of the slow cooker. Pour the sauce over the top. Cover and cook on high for 90 minutes, stirring it after an hour.
