I’ve been making these bites for years!
What started as a little experiment has now turned into a delicious recipe… er obsession.
Quite possibly, the recipe I make the most often when I have company over. My friends ask for Brown Sugar Glazed Kielbasa Bites almost every time they come over my house and, even when I go over their house!
Yep, I’ve even made these in other people’s home.
The obsession is real.
My friends and I have been affectionately calling them coke sausage through the years. Ha!
This is why I always have kielbasa sausages on hand. They are an awesome appetizer and a quick bite to make when you have unexpected company.
Thankfully, they are SUPER easy to make and come together in no time.
And I mean, it’s only 3 ingredients!
The caramelization waiting time is really the hardest part of this recipe. Just be careful not to eat them too soon after you transfer them to a plate.
Sugar gets HOT.
They are definitely hard to resist but you don’t want to burn your mouth (speaking from experience here).
Also, please note, not all stoves are created equal. As I mentioned above, I’ve made these kielbasa bites before in other kitchens.
Sometimes it takes 10 minutes, other times it takes 35 minutes. You will have to eyeball the glaze to see when the brown sugar + coke mixture thicken. You know your stove better than I do.
Use your best judgement when making these.
