How to Make BBQ Kielbasa Bites

Start by slicing the kielbasa into one inch chunks. If you want it to look a little fancier, slice on an angle.

Add to a hot grill, grill pan or cast iron skillet and cook until seared and caramelized on all sides. Toss in barbecue sauce and cook another minute. And that’s all there is to it.

I can’t find kielbasa. What else can I use? You can use smoked sausage instead. Or in a pinch, you could even make this recipe with hot dogs.

What’s the best way to keep these warm during a party? Once cooked, place them in a slow cooker on warm.

How long are these good in the fridge? Keep in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
