Whether craving a snack or an appetizer, these Slow Cooker Apple Kielbasa Bites will satisfy your sweet and savory needs. A crowd-pleaser at parties, potlucks, or even just a snack on a cold night, this dish’s ease belies its satisfying flavor. The inclusion of apples lends kielbasa an American spin, reflecting the melting pot of culinary traditions, even though it hails from Eastern European nations like Poland. For those who love tasty yet fuss-free cooking, this recipe is a great option because of the slow cooker approach, which lets the flavors combine well.

Slow Cooker Apple Kielbasa Bites may be served in a variety of ways. As an individual snack or as an accompaniment to a larger spread, they are best served with toothpicks. You can’t go wrong with a cheesy dip or a plate of sharp cheeses to go with them, and they also go well with other finger foods. To make them more filling, serve them with roasted veggies, a bed of rice or potatoes to soak up the flavorful sauce, or a fresh green salad. Pairing these kielbasa nibbles with a cup of hot cider would be the perfect way to celebrate the season and bring out the apple taste.


  • 1 package (14-16 oz) of kielbasa sausage, sliced into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley or green onions, for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare Slow Cooker: Lightly grease the inside of your slow cooker to prevent sticking.
  2. Combine Sauce Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, ketchup, honey, Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until well combined.
  3. Layer in Slow Cooker: Place the sliced kielbasa sausage pieces into the slow cooker. Pour the sauce mixture over the sausage, ensuring that all pieces are coated evenly.
  4. Cook: Cover the slow cooker and cook on LOW heat for 4-6 hours or on HIGH heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally if possible. The kielbasa bites should be heated through and the sauce will thicken and caramelize.
  5. Serve: Once done, use a slotted spoon to transfer the kielbasa bites to a serving dish. You can optionally sprinkle chopped fresh parsley or green onions over the top for garnish.
  6. Enjoy: Serve the Brown Sugar Kielbasa Bites as a delicious appetizer or main dish. They pair wonderfully with rice, mashed potatoes, or on their own as a party snack.

This recipe is perfect for gatherings and can be easily doubled or tripled to serve a larger crowd. The sweet and savory flavors of the brown sugar glaze make these kielbasa bites irresistible!
