Transform your cocktail smokies with wiener cutters!
Here are a few tips:
1. Put the sausages in the freezer for about 20 minutes before using. This "hardens" them up so they are easier to cut.
2. Add a thin layer of cooking oil on the sausage before cutting. This helps make a smooth extraction.
3. Slice off any tied ends of the sausage.
4. Grill in pan or boil the sausages after cutting.
