"These tiny tangy appetizers have such broad appeal. I prepare them often for holiday gatherings, weddings and family reunions," relates Lucille Howell of Portland, Oregon. "They're convenient to serve at parties since the sauce can be made ahead, then just reheated with the franks before serving."

"This is a great recipe. I love the tangy sauce. Whenever I make this, I have to double the recipe because my family loves them so much. I would encourage everyone to try and make this at least once....you won't regret it!"
