Slow Cooker Sweet Spicy Sausage


Made it for a baby shower and everyone LOVED it! We ran out very quickly so I recommend making a bit more than necessary (not to mention that the leftovers are almost better the second time around!)


    1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    ½ tablespoon minced garlic
    12 ounces chili sauce
    12 ounces grape jelly
    ½ tablespoon crushed red pepper
    ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
    32 ounces fully-cooked sausage, cut into ½-inch pieces

  • Pour the oil in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Then add the chili sauce and grape jelly and mix together. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Place the sausage in your slow cooker. Add the spices to the sauce mixture, stir and then pour it over the sausage. Cover and cook for 1½ - 2 hours on high, or until the sausage is hot and the sauce is bubbly. Stir once after 1 hour.
