Crockpot Sausage Recipe

I love appetizers more than any meal. Snackable little bites are so fun to eat and perfect for any occasion.

This Slow Cooker Sweet and Spicy Bbq Sausage works for dinner too. Just serve the flavorful sausage over rice with a vegetable on the side and dinner is done!

Butterball turkey products allow you to make better choices for your family without sacrificing any flavor. Wholesome, budget friendly meals that taste fantastic!

    Great recipe. This is also great using Oscar Meyer Select hot dogs (no nitrates or nitrites). When I make them, I don’t use the BBQ sauce but I use apricot jam and a splash of cognac or any brandy. They are delicious as well.

      I usually use either Sweet Baby Ray’s or KC Masterpiece. I think I used Sweet Baby Ray’s for this recipe. Enjoy!

    Hi Nicole,
    Can little smokies be used in this recipe or will it mess up the flavor since they aren’t turkey? Thanks,

      Lil Smokies are perfectly fine. I love Them!

    This sounds super easy and yummy, do you think I could substitute the apricot jam for raspberry or strawberry jam and substitute the turkey sausage for pork sausage links and it still taste as good??

    • Slow Cooker Recipe: Sweet and Spicy Bbq Sausage (50)Nicole Harris says

      Absolutely! In fact, that sounds delicious 🙂

    How many ounces of meat? Your picture shows 40 oz packages… Is it really 80 oz total?

      This is meant for a party or feast! But, feel free to halve the recipe for a smaller family get-together 🙂
