Sweet & Savory Sausages

In the finale to my party food features this week, I wanted to tell you about my second favorite way to use little cocktail sausages. The first is, of course, pigs in a blanket – which get eaten up in this house as fast as I can make them. They are one of Pickle’s all time favorites, and when I asked her for some food ideas for her birthday, that was her #1 choice. This is a great recipe as an alternative to that, or if you just aren’t feeling like making meatballs again. I usually make these on the stove – but these Sweet & Savory Sausages would be great in the slow cooker too.
