These Crockpot Sweet and Spicy Kielbasa Bites are perfect party food and couldn’t be easier to make. Arrange slices of kielbasa sausage in a crockpot then whip-up the sauce and pour it over the top. The rest is up to the slow cooker. Serve these kielbasa bites straight from the slow cooker with toothpicks for easy eating on game day or any day that bite size morsels are on the menu.
There are certain types of food that have earned the name “party food” at our house. Things like wings, subs, queso and tortilla chips, crudite, dips and chips and the list goes on and on. These kielbasa bites are perfect party food and are ever-so-simple to put together. I tend to reach for them when I don’t have time to make meatballs or for easy no fuss entertaining. The sweet and spicy sauce is the perfect crowning touch and can be easily adapted if you need to make a larger or a smaller batch.
