This recipe for Slow-Cooked Little Smokies goes beyond the norm by giving your favorite little smokies even more spice and flavor. They are so delicious and easy to make, you’ll want to add this to your holiday recipe stash. 

Slow-Cooked Little Smokies in a Small Serving Dish

I’m sure you’ve eaten or made Lit’l Smokies that have been slathered with a favorite barbecue sauce. It’s a quick way to prepare an appetizer and is relatively good. However, I’m here to tell you that this recipe tastes so much better, and is still quite easy to make. Plus, I love being able to mix it all up and put it in a 1.5 quart slow cooker to cook–and serve! If you happen to be serving a really big party, you may, of course, use a larger slow cooker, and simply adjust the ingredient amounts to fit your needs. 

Of course, if you’d prefer to place the Little Smokies in a serving bowl, feel free to do so. This especially comes in handy when serving leftovers.
