Crock Pot Cranberry Smokies are the perfect appetizer.

Cranberry Smokies - The Southern Lady Cooks


This recipe is only three ingredients and really is the easiest appetizer. We love to serve these for any gathering. They are always requested and we never have any left. You can easily double this recipe if needed.  Make these smokies for Christmas or Thanksgiving or just anytime you want a great snack for family and friends.  You can reheat these in the crock pot or microwave and they are good for a couple days refrigerated.  Take them to tailgating parties in the fall of the year and your friends will love them.  We have made these little smokies so many times that I keep a couple packages in my freezer because we love them when we get together and once they are ready to serve, it is almost a fight to see who gets to them first.  I may have to start tripling the recipe when my family comes around so everyone gets enough to be satisfied.  Children will like these smokies just as much as adults, too.

Crock pot cranberry smokies ingredients needed:

Package of Little Smokies

Can of jellied Cranberry Sauce

We use the Heinz chili sauce and it has always worked well. Great reviews on these delicious smokies:
