Grape Dogs-Hot Dog Appetizer

When I told my hubby I was mixing together chili sauce and grape jelly for this recipe he said “What on earth?” I think he thought I was nuts! LOL! I have to admit, it sounds weird, but the final result is yummy. The tangy sauce paired with hot dogs, cocktail wienies, or meatballs makes a crowd-pleasing appetizer.

Grape Dogs
Approx. 32 Servings  Prep time: 5 min.  Total time: 30 min.

1 bottle (12 ounces) chili sauce
1 cup grape jelly
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 packages (1 pound each) hot dogs

Slice hot dogs into 1 inch pieces. In a large skillet, combine the chili sauce, jelly and lemon juice; cook over medium-low heat until jelly is melted, stirring occasionally. Add hot dogs. Reduce heat; simmer on low for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately or keep warm in a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker.

Variation: Add a little hot sauce to turn up the heat.
