  1. So easy and so delicious! Plus it's a great way to beat the summer heat on nights when it's just too hot to grill. I would definitely brown the sausage first to avoid a bunch of grease in the crock pot. I also sauteed a green and red pepper along with a vidalia onion in - Read more ...
  2. This is a five star recipe IF you simmer the sausages for about 10 minutes before placing in the slow cooker. If you don't the grease is extreme!
  3. I used homemade spaghetti sauce plus 1 cup of water added green peppers and sliced onions. I did boil the sausages a few minutes before placing in the slow cooker to release some of the grease. Very tasty!
  4. I did not expect much of this recipe but made it because it was easy and I thought the guys at work would like it... HOLY COW! This makes an absolutely delicious sausage sandwich on a hoagie with lots of shredded mozzerella. I added one clove of garlic and I only had 6 sausages but - Read more ...

  8. Delicious! Extremely easy. The sausages practically melted in my mouth. Nice and tender. I didn't have any bell peppers and I added a couple of fresh garlic cloves toasted our rolls prior to filling and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese. My whole family loved them.
  9. Perfect! Easy and delicious. My husband dreams about it at work when he knows it'll be waiting when he gets home. We've had it over rice mashed potatoes and spaghetti then in rolls the next night. I use two onions two peppers and sweet sausage. Love it!
