  • ISO: new ways to fix mini weinies!

    I am having a birthday party next weekend.  I have 2 pkgs. of the cocktail weinies in the freezer I'd like to use up.  I've made them before using the grape jelly/chili sauce, but I'd like to try something different. Something I can put in the crockpot to keep warm during party.

     Here is an easy recipe I bet you could heat up in the crock pot and use the mini wienies.


    Beanie Wienies

    In Ponca City, Oklahoma, LaDonna Reed dresses up hot dogs and canned pork and beans with extra seasonings to create this kid-pleasing combo. "This dish is quick and easy to throw together, and my family loves it," she remarks.

    SERVINGS: 6-8

    CATEGORY: Main Dish

    METHOD: Other stovetop

    TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min.


    • 2 cans (15 ounces each) pork and beans
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
    • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 package (1 pound) hot dogs, halved lengthwise and cut into thirds


    In a saucepan, combine the first five ingredients; mix well. Add hot dogs; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 3-4 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6-8 servings.

    Patti, I've got several I've saved in my files that can be done in the crockpot. I'll post them here for you.


    Hi Bev....that looks great!


    This first one is from Amy (Cooknchic)



    2 lb. hot dogs, Smok-Y-Links
    or sausages
    1/2 c. prepared mustard
    1 c. blackberry jam (about
    one 10 oz. jar)

    Cut hot dogs in bite-size pieces. Combine jam and
    mustard in a 9 x 11-inch glass dish. Put in hot dogs; stir to
    cover with sauce. Bake in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve
    hot. Easy and delicious.

    RE: Cocktail Weiners...need a spicy recipe

    Hi! I'm too cheap to buy cocktail weiners so I get hot dogs on sale for this. It won't make a bit of difference.

    Hot hot dogs

    3 lbs hot dogs
    1 can beer
    1 or 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
    1/2 bottle hot sauce or to taste

    Cut the hot dogs in bite size pieces,put in large pot. Add all other ingredients.
    Start to heat on high.Keep an eye on them, they really swell up at first.
    After about 30 minutes,turn heat down until the sauce starts to thicken. You may have to add a little more brown sugar for that.
    All in all I usually cook them for about 2 hours. They end up small enough to spear with a toothpick and dip in the sauce.

    I use this recipe:

    1 cup Ketchup
    1/3 cup Honey
    1/2 Cup Pace Picante Sauce

    I'll let you decide whether to use the mild, medium or hot pace picante sauce. I use the medium. I love this whenever I'm grilling meat - great on chicken, pork steaks, or skewered bacon-wrapped shrimp.

    I make bourbon hotdogs.

    1 cup brown sugar
    1 cup ketchup
    1/2 cup of bourbon
    1 pound of beef hot dogs cut into 1/2" pieces

    combine first 3 ingredients, bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the hotdogs and simmer for another 20 - 30 minutes. I keep mine in a fondue pot to keep warm, or when I am having a huge crowd, triple the recipe and put the whole mess into a crockpot.


    Cocktail Dogs

    1 7oz jar Guldens Spicy Brown Mustard
    1 7 oz. jar red currant Jelly
    1 package cocktail weiners

    Place mustard and jelly into medium saucepan, cook on low heat until smooth and warm. Add cocktail weiners and heat until warm. Serve warm with toothpicks.

    This one is so easy and they go very fast. Just put a container of toothpicks next to the crockpot.

    Glazed Spicy Smokie Sausages
    This is a very good and easy one.

    One 16oz. package of smokies (small frankfurters)
    1 cup jellied cranberry sauce
    3 tablespoons prepared mustard
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1/2 teaspoon salt

    In saucepan, cook all the ingredients except frankfurters. Stir sauce until smooth. Place frankfurters in crock pot and pour sauce over the frankfurters. Set crock pot on low to heat up the frankfurters. Serve warm.

    A friend of mine uses 3 different recipes when she brings little smokies to our card party.

    One calls for 1 can cherry pie filling and 1 bottle of honey bbq sauce.
    The other is 1 med. size jar of apricot preserves and 1 bottle of honey bbq sauce.
    I prefer the apricot flavor over the cherry.
    Her third recipe uses Dorothy Lynch Lettuce Dressing, a Nebraska based product, which is a sweetened version of Catalina French dressing. She adds only a couple tablespoons of honey bbq sauce to this version.

    Sorry I don't have any thing "unique" to contribute!

    1/2 cup ketchup
    1/4 cup prepared horseradish

    Place sausages in a slow cooker. Combine brown sugar, ketchup and horseradish; pour over
    sausages. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours.

    Yield: 16-20 servings

    These sound like good party fare too.

    Uncle Jack's Red Dogs

    1 1/2 cups catsup
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Whiskey
    1 package cocktail wieners or hot dogs cut into one inch pieces.

    In a small saucepan combine the catsup and brown sugar. Heat over low heat until the sugar dissolve. Remove the pan from the heat and add the whiskey. This can be served in a chafing dish with cocktail weiners or used as a sauce over hot dogs in buns. All proprtions are approximate.
    You may adjust to your own taste.




    I have several more (a result of copying recipes from this board for 6 years! LOL), so if you need more ideas let me know.



  • Re: ISO: new ways to fix mini weinies!

    We really enjoyed these at a recent party.  I used 1 lb of cocktail wieners and a heaping tbsp of grated the crockpot.  Delicious! 

    Posted by: Karolin

    Serve this in larger chunks as an entree or in smaller pieces for an appetizer. People will rave over this quick and easy dish! If desired, this can be made in the crockpot on low heat for 3 hours.

    2 pounds smoked sausage or kielbasa or little smokies
    1 cup applesauce
    2/3 cup brown sugar
    1 small white onion, finely chopped

    Cut sausage into desired size pieces. In a large baking dish, combine applesauce, brown sugar and onion. Stir in sausage and toss to coat. Bake, uncovered, at 325 degrees for 40 minutes, stirring once.

  • Re: ISO: new ways to fix mini weinies!
