Home Sweet Homestead: Crockpot Honey BBQ Hot Dogs

Go to any backyard cookout during the Summer, and you'll almost always see those ever popular hot dogs and hamburgers, sizzling on the grill. And for good reason. They're quick, easy, cheap, and appeal to everyone's taste-buds.

Home Sweet Homestead: Slow Cooker Honey BBQ Hot Dogs

Well now you can save that grill space for other things, (like my Grilled Corn with Fresh Garlic Butter and Lime) because these Honey BBQ Hot Dogs are cooked in a crockpot! They're super easy to make, and taste amazing. The BBQ sauce is homemade and slightly sweet, for a hot dog that is anything but average.

Don't stop there though. Serve some of this tasty sauce as a condiment for your other entrees, like burgers or chicken. Your family and guests will love it!

Many thanks to Stacy from Food Lust People Love, and Mary Ellen from Recipes Food and Cooking for hosting this event.
