A great appetizer to use in Crock Pots, chafing dish or fondue!

*I only use Hillshire Farms "Little Smokies".

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This little smokies recipe is perfect if you're looking for an easy appetizer. The sauce has everything in it - sweetness from the brown sugar, sour from the orange juice, and tanginess from the mustard. When the brown sugar melts into the orange juice it creates a superb glaze. These aren't your typical BBQ smokies. Thanks to the glaze, there's a little sophistication to this super simple Crock Pot little smokies recipe. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Drema's Orange Glaze Cocktail Weiners

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat and prepare a Crock Pot, chaffing dish or fondue pot to lowest setting.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, flour, and mustard.
  3. Make a well and gradually add in vinegar and orange juice. Stir well.
  4. Transfer to Crock Pot or heat source.
  5. Add cocktail weiners.
  6. Stir gently. If becomes too thick add small amounts of diluted OJ with water until you reach the correct consistency of a glaze.
  7. Cook on low till only heated thoroughly, about 30 minutes.
