Crockpot Cranberry Bbq Kielbasa Ingredients:

  • Kielbasa is one of those meats I stock up on and keep in my freezer. Great for breakfast casseroles, sheet pans dinners, or breakfast griddle meals.
  • BBQ Sauce– I used honey bbq sauce for this. You could use a spicy one if you want more of a kick to the dish.
  • Cranberry Sauce– I used jellied cranberry sauce to make this. You will cut it up and slice it up before throwing it in the crockpot.
  • Olive Oil

How To Make crock pot kielbasa with Cranberry Bbq

Slice up your Kielbasa into about 1-inch thick slices.
