Five Ingredient Friday...Mustard Lover's Party Bites

Fridays are an opportunity to showcase recipes that call for 5 ingredients or less!  You can't get any easier than that!

This week, Mustard Lover's Party Bites are perfect for game night, or tailgating.  We love easy, great tasting party food!

Mustard Lover's Party Bites

12 hotdogs, cut into bite-sized pieces  OR 1 pkg of Lil' Smokies, OR a combo of both (that's what I use)
1 c. grape jelly
1 c. prepared mustard

Place all ingredients in slow cooker.  Stir well.  Cover and cook on High until mixture starts to boil.  Stir well.  Turn to Low.  Serve warm.

***** make sure to have plenty of toothpicks for people to just stab & go!
***** when we go to Yankee games, I make these ahead of time, and then put the mixture in an insulated bowl that keeps food warm for hours, so we can enjoy them while tailgating.

Tasty Tuesday.... Bits & Bites

This is a great appetizer or game day snack. 

Bits & Bites

1 12 oz. can of beer
1 c. ketchup
1 c. light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 - 3/4 c. barbecue sauce
1 pkg. beef hotdogs, sliced into 1 1/2 inch pieces

Combine beer, ketchup, brown sugar and barbecue sauce.  Place hotdogs and sausages into slow cooker.  Pour sauce over all.  Cover and cook on Low for 3 hours.
