Tasty Tuesday -Sweet Spicy Appy

slow-cooker-sweet-spicy-sausage-4

I LOVE this recipe and every time I make it, everyone raves about it.  The only difference is that I use frozen “turkey meatballs” instead of sausage.  Thank you Jenny Bullistron

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tablespoon minced garlic
  • 12 ounces chili sauce
  • 12 ounces grape jelly
  • ½ tablespoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 32 ounces fully-cooked sausage, cut into ½-inch piece

Instructions
Pour the oil in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Then add the chili sauce and grape jelly and mix together. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently.
Place the sausage in your slow cooker. Add the spices to the sauce mixture, stir and then pour it over the sausage. Cover and cook for 1½ – 2 hours or until the sausage is hot and the sauce is bubbly. Stir once after 1 hour.

NOTE:  I throw everything into the crock pot – less mess, less to clean up!!
