When our kids are home for the holidays, we serve an array of appetizers instead of a big meal. I use both wieners and smokies in this small-plate favorite. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, WI


  • 2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4 packages (14 ounces each) miniature hot dogs or smoked sausages


  1. In a 6-qt. stockpot, mix ketchup, brandy, honey and onion; stir in hot dogs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until hot dogs are heated through, 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
