Instant Pot Little Smokies

Use lil smokies or cocktail sausages. Served with some toothpicks these are the perfect little snack during Super Bowl or for a party.

If you use your pressure cooker a lot to make dinners and desserts you will be surprised at how easy other basic recipes are to make.

This is a one minute appetizer!

Instant Pot cocktail wieners

  1. Cocktail wieners or Little Smokies
  2. Bbq sauce – we like this barbecue sauce, remember not to use super thick or honey style in an Instant Pot or it has a tendency to trigger the burn message – 18 or 20 oz is good
  3. Water

Grape Jelly Smokies Recipe

  • 12 oz. Jar chili sauce
  • 18 oz. grape jelly
  • 3/4 c water

Just whisk these together and use instead of bottled sauce in recipe card below. Follow same directions for cook times.

Sriracha or hot sauce – if you want a kick and your sauce doesn’t already have spice to it

Instant Pot Smokies

  1. Add ingredients

    Pour barbecue sauce (stay away from honey version as it may trigger the burn message because of the sugar) on the bottom of your Instant Pot.

    Pour 1/2 c water into your barbecue sauce bottle, put lid on and shake to get remaining sauce out. Pour this into your pressure cooker too.

    Empty 1-2 packages of little smokies into your pot and stir to combine so they are all coated.

  2. Cook

    Close lid and steam valve and set the Instant Pot to high pressure for 0 minutes, or low pressure for 1 minute!

    Do a quick release and serve with a bowl of toothpicks next to it as an appetizer for game day.
