Hawaiian Kielbasa Sandwiches

If you are looking for a different way to use kielbasa, the sweet and mildly spicy flavor of these sandwiches is a nice change of pace.—Judy Dames, Bridgeville, Pennsylvania

    Basic recipe sounds great. Not so sure about all the sugar though. Can't visualize it with the chili sauce. I'll have to experiment and let you know how it comes out.

    I made this last night and everyone enjoyed this recipe. I might change it just slightly next time by slicing the kielbasa in rings , frying them to add a little carmilaizatio. Before adding to the crockpot and serve as an appetizer. You could also use the little smokies in a pinch !Great overall and would make a wonderful party appetizer !!

    These were delicious and easy. I've even just made them in a skillet. Even my very picky daughter liked it.
