This recipe is delicious and easy. My mom started making it using hot dogs when I was a child. I've teased the recipe a bit; not much. I serve it whenever there is a gathering along with other appetizers. It's always a favorite, especially with the men. Great for Super Bowl and other sports parties.

How to Make Hot Sausage Appetizer in Savory Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut up sausage into 1/2 inch or bite size pieces (on a diagonal). Precook in a large pan of water, simmering for 15 - 20 minutes. Drawn well and set aside to add to sauce.
  2. In a large electric skillet (or large sauce pan) on medium setting, sauté onion and bell pepper in butter 5 minutes.
  3. Add remaining ingredients (except sausage) and stir. Cover and simmer for 10 - 15 minutes.
  4. Add sausage, stirring to coat. Cover and simmer on very low until ready to serve - up to an hour, stirring occasionally. Sauce gets better with time.
  5. Serve from the electric skillet (or casserole dish) with tooth picks or offer a spoon for small plates and forks. Small rolls are an option for sandwiches as a heavier appetizer or dinner entree. Either way, It will be gone in no time!
  6. This can all be done ahead of time. It will serve as many as you need. The amount of sauce will allow you to add more sausage (up to 4 lbs) if using toothpicks. Over 4 lbs. I would recommend doubling the sauce.
