I know, you may be raising your eyebrows at this one, or maybe you’ve heard of this recipe unlike me! It all came about when my husband came home from work before Christmas and he was raving about these little sausage bites as he referred to them. Then he goes onto tell me he thought it was kielbasa, brown sugar and ginger ale, but that’s about all he knew. I brushed it off and didn’t think another thing about it.
Fast forward a few days and I was needing a appetizer recipe to bring to my future sister-in-law’s surprise thirtieth birthday party. I was questioning my hubs on what he wanted to make and he just kept saying whatever is easy for you! Such a thoughtful guy isn’t he? This is his typical answer, but usually I’m looking for something a bit more specific.
After a quick rolling of the eyes and me spouting off about how a little more information would be helpful he brought these Glazed Kielbasa Bites back up. I knew they were made in the Crock Pot so that was perfect because I needed to keep them warm at the party.
Then I went straight to the source, his coworker that brought them. She’s a pretty awesome lady and I actually know her quite well. Back when I was in high school I actually dated her son for a few years! Small world huh? I sent her a Facebook message to get the actual recipe and surprisingly my husband was dead on, but it was helpful to have the ingredients and cook time!
After seeing the ingredients list I was still thinking, can this really be that good? I was apprehensive to say the least. I was also sweating it because I was bringing them to a party and everyone always expects me to have amazing food where ever I go. I mean, three ingredients?? How good can this be?
I was sure I was going to be let down along with my friends at the party. I wasn’t going to get rave reviews, people asking for the recipe etc. That’s always my goal. Then I know it’s a success! I put a lot of pressure on myself don’t I?
When we got to the party I plugged in my Slow Cooker full of Glazed Kielbasa Bites and wished for the best!
After the birthday girl arrived we dug into the food, which of course there was a ton! At first no one said anything about my Crock Pot Kielbasa Bites, but then I noticed people going back for seconds and I knew I was in luck! They loved them!
My bro-in-law started questioning the hubs about them and how I made them. I walked over to join the conversation and told him that even he could pull these off because they only had three ingredients. He couldn’t believe it!
