“A good friend, we used to have a lot of parties and would have lots of hors d'oeuvres. This one was a favorite of everyone. We always doubled the recipe and all would be eaten. Easy to make and you can freeze leftovers if you are lucky enough to have any. I us more bourbon than the recipe list for.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (14 ounce) bottle tomato ketchup
  • 34 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 34 cup Bourbon (I use Tennessee Jack Daniel's # 07)
  • 2 (16 ounce) packages frankfurters, and cut into 1 inch chunks (See Note)


  1. Note: I use 4- 8 ounce packages of miniature cocktail frankfurters.
  2. When I cook the sauce thoroughly I put into a crock pot and then put the frankfurters in and heat.
  3. You then have everything ready to go if you are taking this item to someone else's party.
  4. In a large saucepan, combine ketchup, brown sugar and bourbon; stir until well blended.
  5. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, about 1 hour.
  6. Add frankfurters and simmer until heated thoroughly, about 5 minutes.
