3 hr 30 min

14 servings

  • 14 hot dogs with about 40 calories and 1 gram of fat or less each
  • 3/4 cup very finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chili sauce (the kind found by the ketchup)
  • 3/4 cup low-sugar grape preserves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • Special equipment: crock pot

Cut each hot dog into thirds, leaving you with cocktail-sized franks. Place in the crock pot. Add onion to the crock pot as well.

In a bowl, combine chili sauce, preserves, and mustard; mix well. Add to the crock pot and gently mix to coat.

Cover and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours.

Stir well and then serve up the hot dogs with extra sauce on top!

They came out burned, tasteless, greasy. I won't be doing this again. Why would you need to cook pre-cooked hot dogs (or even little smokies for yet another several hours? Instructions are not good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Brought this to a cocktail party and nobody knew it was guilt-free. My best friend, who is the world's pickiest eater, even liked it. She did notice the difference in texture in the low-fat weenies, but it was still a delicious treat! item not reviewed by moderator and published
