Who wants to spend a lotta time in the kitchen this busy time of year? But we do need some quick edibles for hunkering down on chilly days for football or movie watch’n, and once you make this “EVERYthang sauce” to have on hand, you can throw out all sorts of goodies for family snack’n, or to wave your magic wand and have out in a flash when company comes by… this sauce will keep indefinitely in the fridge so make a bunch and keep in a squirt bottle to liven’ us these bites, chicken bites, grilled meats and veggies and even goodies like meat loaf! Who needs ketchup when you have “EVERYthang?”
1 14 ounce pkg. kielbasa or smoked sausage, cut on diagonal into about 3 dozen pieces
Heat skillet over medium high heat. Add light coating of oil. When hot, add sausage pieces. Cook on each side about 3 minutes until browned and crispy. Place in serving bowl. Turn these ho hum “somethings” into “EVERYthang” with a quick little drizzle.
1 cup George’s Special Sauce
1/2 cup George’s Original (or Hot) Sauce
3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
1-2 teaspoons garlic paste (tube in produce dept.)
1 cup maple syrup
2 teaspoons black pepper
To make sauce: (just make some of this on a back burner while you’re already in the kitchen cooking!)
Put George’s sauces and remaining ingredients into heavy bottomed saucepan. Bring to boil, then reduce and simmer to reduce by about half to thicken to a glaze consistency. Pour into bottle with squeeze top. Keep chilled until ready to serve. Heat and drizzle over the kielbasa bites… or anything that is just “something” until you want to make it “EVERYthang!”
Makes about 3 dozen pieces.
