Looking for the perfect southern appetizer? Pack a Kentucky punch and serve my Bourbon Franks, a family favorite for decades!
- 3/4 c. Kentucky bourbon
- 1 lb. cocktail smokies
- 1/2 vidalia onion chopped
- 1/2 c. ketchup
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. butter
- 1 tsp. garlic powder
Over medium heat, cook diced onion in butter for 5 minutes. Add ketchup, brown sugar, and bourbon. Simmer for 20-30 minutes.
Add in cocktail smokies and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
Serve warm and enjoy!
- Do not cook with the same bourbon that you drink; I always use lower-tier bourbon when cooking.
- Do not shorten the cook time; it is important to reach the correct consistency for the sauce.
- I like cooking the onions in butter; that said, you can also use extra virgin olive oil.
