A Crockpot appetizer for the Kentucky Derby
Makes: 6 to 8 snack servings
1 lb. grass-fed hot dogs
1 ½ cups organic ketchup
1/3 cup water
½ cup mascavo sugar (or brown sugar)
½ cup Kentucky bourbon
1 tbsp onion, grated
Slice your hot dogs into pieces at least a half inch wide. Place in a 5 quart slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, stir together the ketchup, water, sugar, bourbon and onion. Pour this over the hot dogs and stir so that all pieces are happily coated.
Cook on high for about 1 hour, then reduce to low for 1 to 2 hours. Serve or allow them to sit with the slow cooker on the warm setting so that they absorb even more flavor.
