Classic Cocktail Wieners
Let’s begin with the tried and true classic recipe for cocktail wieners. This recipe requires just a few ingredients and minimal effort, making it perfect for any occasion. Here’s what you’ll need:
– 1 package of cocktail wieners
– 1 cup of ketchup
– 1/2 cup of brown sugar
– 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce
– Optional: hot sauce for an extra kick
– Toothpicks for serving
To start, preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Drain the liquid from the package of cocktail wieners and set them aside. In a saucepan, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce (if desired). Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the brown sugar has dissolved and the sauce has thickened slightly. This should take about 5-7 minutes.
Next, place the cocktail wieners in a baking dish and pour the sauce over them, ensuring they are well coated. Use a spoon to mix them around and make sure each wiener is covered in the delicious sauce. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and cook for approximately 20 minutes, or until the cocktail wieners are heated through and the sauce is bubbly.
