Candied Kielbasa

Candied Kielbasa


"Kielbasa, also called kielbasy or Polish sausage, is a spicy sausage usually made with pork (though beef is sometimes added). It comes in chunky links, and is sold precooked. I haven't met anyone yet who didn't like this dish. I even like it and I really don't care for kielbasa that much! Another bonus is that it is easy to make, and is yet another recipe for your slow cooker."

This is one of our favorites! I have found through trial and error, it is better baked in the oven rather than the slow cooker. Oven cooking gives it more of a "candied" apperarance, whereas t...

The first time I tried this recipe, I enjoyed it, but it was a little too sweet for my taste, and not spicy enough. When I made it again last night, I cut the brown sugar down by at least half,...

Wow, was this YUMMY! Being a Polish girl, I never had kielbasa this way! lol I read the reviews and grilled my kielbasa lightly on the BBQ so that fat would not drip into the crockpot. (I love...

Very easy - my husband loved it. I read all the previous reviews and decided to make the following adjustments - used only 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup ketchup and 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, sprinkle o...

Awesome appetizer! I really thought it might have too much horse radish in it, but that was not the case at all. We served this for the Super Bowl and just loved it. I will definitely make it ag...

This was good after 2 hours, one hour on high and one on low. A previous reviewer said they left it on low for 6 hours and it was great. I left it in for about 6 hours and it was so gross. The c...
