"Pump Up the Jam Cocktail Weenies"

Another by Hungry Girl! This was meant to be an appetizer at a party and said to make 14 servings. I divided it into about 4 2/3 servings (a serving of 9 weenies).

  • 14 hot dogs with about 40 calories (I use 90% fat free Oscar Meyer)
  • 2 TBSP minced onion, since I hate onion. OR 3/4 cup very finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup reduced sugar ketchup (by Heinz)
  • 1-2 TBSP chili powder, to taste
  • 3/4 cup Sugar-free jelly or marmalade (any flavor. I used Orange Marmelade)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard


  1. Cut each hot dog into thirds, leaving you with cocktail-sized franks. Place in a crock pot. Add onion to the crock pot as well.
  2. In a bowl, combine ketchup sauce, chili powder, preserves/jelly, and mustard; mix well. Add to the crock pot and gently stir to coat.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 3 - 4 hours.
  4. Stir well and then serve up the hot dogs with extra sauce on top!

Makes 14 appetizer servings (3 weenies) or 4 2/3 dinner sized servings (9 weenies).

P.S. Pardon the tacky paper plate. I'm a new mom, work full time, and I'm trying to save time by cutting back on chores like dishes!! ;-)
