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.
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.
CATEGORY: Main Dish
METHOD: Other stovetop
TIME: Prep/Total Time: 15 min.
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! 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 dogs1 can beer1 or 1 1/2 cups brown sugar1/2 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 Ketchup1/3 cup Honey1/2 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.
Posted by: qagal Posted on: 11/7/2002 10:13:37 AM #R776712 I make bourbon hotdogs.1 cup brown sugar1 cup ketchup1/2 cup of bourbon1 pound of beef hot dogs cut into 1/2" piecescombine 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.

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!Prairie Rose:)

These sound like good party fare too.Uncle Jack's Red Dogs 1 1/2 cups catsup1/4 cup brown sugar1/4 cup Jack Daniel's Whiskey1 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.
We really enjoyed these at a recent party. I used 1 lb of cocktail wieners and a heaping tbsp of grated onion...in the crockpot. Delicious!
