CAN I USE A GENERIC BBQ SAUCE INSTEAD OF COUNTRY BOB’S ALL PURPOSE BBQ SAUCE?
Yes, you can use a generic bbq sauce in this recipe instead of Country Bob’s All-Purpose BBQ Sauce.
The steps will be pretty much the same.
As for the taste, I prefer Country Bob’s but you can use any bbq sauce you like that compliments the flavors of kielbasa.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE FOR PHYLLO DOUGH TO UNTHAW?
It takes about 8 hours in the refrigerator for phyllo dough to unthaw.
It is best to take it out of the freezer the night before and then place it in the refrigerator.
Then a few hours before using it, check to see if it has unthawed.
If it is still slightly frozen, leave it out at room temperature for another hour or two.
WHAT ELSE CAN I ADD TO THIS KIELBASA BACON BITES RECIPE?
This simple Kielbasa Bacon Bites recipe not only tastes great, but it’s also incredibly versatile.
Try adding sauteed bell peppers to the Kielbasa mixture.
