Sweet ‘n’ Tangy Little Smokies

My family would vote hands down that this is their favorite appetizer. It is so simple yet so flavorful. I make them 2-3 times a year. This is one of our favorite ways to serve them. They can stay warm in the slow cooker until they are served. So simple!

Verdict: Sweet and Tangy says it all. Whether you serve these with other appetizers or with a salad, vegetable and side as part of a meal these are yummy!
