"This is just a basic recipe, but a real crowd pleaser. Play with it and turn up or down the heat by the amount of red pepper powder or chili powder you use. (If you don't want any spicy flavor at all, just leave it out, they are still delicious!) I made it for a Halloween party today and it went in 10 minutes! I used 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper powder in the ones I made today and it was very mild in spice."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Preaheat oven to 400. Cut the kielbasa into 1/4-1/2 inch slices. Place single file on a cookie sheet. Bake the bottoms of the kielbasa until slightly brown, then flip over to brown the other side. When brown on both sides, take them out of the oven. (I do them all in 2 batches). Set aside.

Step 2

If eating within an hour or so, add the brown sugar, mustards, red pepper powder/chili powder to the crock pot, and mix well.

Step 3

Turn on the crock pot to high, add the kielbasa, and let the sauce get hot. When the sauce starts to boil, turn the heat down to low. Every once in awhile mix up the kielbasa into the sauce so the flavors blend.

Step 4

NOTE: If you are not eating right away, wait to put the kielbasa into the crock pot. About 1 hour before serving, mix up the ingredients in the crock pot, and put heat on high, and bring to a boil. Add the kielbasa, and when everything is heated through, turn the heat down to low until ready to serve. Every once in awhile mix up the kielbasa into the sauce so the flavors blend.

One of my choices for the Super Bowl that was so enjoyed! The kielbasa tasted extra good made this way, and it's so easy to make which is a plus!

These little babies were eaten and eaten last night at my Christmas Eve gathering. I have a 6 quart crock pot and it was filled to the brim. At the end of the night there was 4 pieces left. I would say they were a complete hit!

These were a SUPER appie for the Super Bowl! So much better than the grape jelly version. The crock pot was empty at half time!

These take little time to make and they taste so good. They were the first thing to disappear at our Christmas party at work!

I needed something good to make for the church social and this was just the right pick. I brought home an empty crock pot, and everyone ate em up like crazy. Some people went back for seconds and thirds! What I really liked about making these is that it doesn't take long at all to make and they only have a few ingredients.
