Don't want any leftovers from your party? Serve these tempting sausages in this sweet and savory sauce. I've never had even one piece go uneaten. —Jo Ann Renner, Xenia, Ohio


  • 2 pounds smoked sausage links
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) Catalina salad dressing
  • 1 bottle (8 ounces) Russian salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • Sliced green onions, optional


  1. Cut sausages diagonally into 1/2-in. slices; cook in a skillet over medium heat until lightly browned. Transfer sausages to a 3-qt. slow cooker; discard drippings.
  2. Add dressings, brown sugar and juice to skillet; cook and stir over medium-low heat until sugar is dissolved. Pour over sausages. Cover and cook on low for 1-2 hours or until heated through. If desired, sprinkle with green onions.
Simmered Smoked Links: Omit dressings and pineapple juice. Increase brown sugar to 1 cup; add 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup prepared horseradish. Cook as directed.
Editor's Note: French salad dressing may be substituted for one or both dressings.
