These slow cooker cocktail franks make a tasty appetizer everyone will enjoy. Serve with decorative toothpicks. You can double the cocktail franks in this recipe.

  • 2/3 cup chili sauce
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pound cocktail franks or regular hot dogs cut in 1-inch slices
  • 1 can sliced pineapple tidbits, drained, quartered
  • dash ground cayenne or chipotle pepper, optional, or to taste


In a medium saucepan combine currant jelly, chili sauce, mustard, and lemon juice. Add the hot dogs or cocktail franks, pineapple, and ground pepper; simmer for about 5 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker and keep on LOW for serving. Serve with toothpicks.

Great!, Member Ljneal

I made this last week for a get together and every one loved them. BUT most people missed the old ones with just 1 cup of mustard and 1 cup of grape jelly slow cooked.
