Kielbasa Bites

Here's a quick and easy appetizer that you can throw together in a snap. It may seem like an unlikely combination of ingredients, but just wait until you taste it. It's sweet and salty and tangy, all at the same time. Try it!

2 tbs Dijon mustard
1 small jar apple jelly
1 or 2 pkg Polish kielbasa

Mix together the mustard and jelly. Slice kielbasa into small pieces and place in a small oven safe dish. Pour mustard mixture over kielbasa. Bake in a 350F oven for 15-20 minutes or until bubbly. And that's it! Pretty simple, huh? Skewer them with toothpicks so that your guests can just help themselves.

If your oven is busy, you can easily make this in a saute pan on your stove top. Just throw everything into the pan and let it simmer over medium heat.
I've seen other versions of this recipe that use different kinds of jelly. Try using grape or currant jelly for an easy variation. REALLY!
