Cocktail Wieners & Sauce Recipe

  • 1 package (14 oz.) Cocktail Wieners
  • 1 cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tablespoon grape jelly
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

Place all ingredients , except wieners, in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.

Prick wieners with a fork or tip of a small kitchen knife and place them in a 1 1/2 quart baking dish.

Pour the barbecue sauce over the wieners.

Bake uncovered, in a 350F preheated oven for 55-60 minutes, until sauce has thickened and wieners are tender.

Note: Most wieners are precooked.

For safety reason, read the labels and cook thoroughly, according to directions on package.

Some recipes, like this one, will indicate longer cooking for specific results.

What Are Cocktail Wieners

They are a type of sausage in a casing similar to a hot dog.

They are small, finger size thin and about 2 inches long.

They are usually made with a combination of meats which may include pork, beef, turkey or chicken and savory spices.

They are usually precooked and sometimes smoked.

They are called by several other names, including LittleSmokies, Cocktail Franks (for frankfurters), and Little Sausages.

They are generally served as an appetizer.

However, creative cooks combine them with other ingredients to make main dishes or sides.

This above recipe makes an awesome Barbecue Sandwich.



Serving and Menu Ideas

Appetizers

Place the wieners in a bowl (as in the above image).

Place cocktail forks on the side.

Arrange on  a serving tray with a toothpick inserted into each wiener.

Or toothpicks to the side. (Festive party toothpicks are cool).

Main Dishes

Mix with a 15 oz. can of Pork n Beans or Baked Beans 20 minutes before end of cooking time to allow beans to get pipping hot.

Cut large baked potato crosswise, scoop out inside, mash and mix with butter, salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon mixture back into potato shell.

Top with the wieners and sauce.

Sandwiches  (awesome)

Butter and toast inside of hamburger buns. (Or heat 20 seconds in microwave).

Pile 3-4 wieners on one inside of bun. 

Scoop up extra Barbecue Sauce and add on top.

Add Cold Slaw (and pickle of choice and slice of onion, if desired).

Place other half on bun on top. Enjoy!
