Crockpot Sausage, Peppers & Onions

As February started coming to a close, I had this yearning to make easy, flavorful comfort food. Unlike Mr. Prevention, I love sausage — Italian sausage, breakfast sausage, turkey sausage…love it all. Needless to say, it’s not the best for you. That said, turkey sausage has come a long ways and I find it to be a perfectly acceptable and flavorful alternative to the pork counterpart and offers up far fewer calories and significantly less saturated fat.

Outside of the sausage, this recipe contains just a few simple ingredients. And truth be told, I’m a lover of all recipes that call for just a bit of wine. What better excuse to drink wine with dinner mid-week?

sausageandonions1Speaking of wine, do you see that there (up above) wine cork? Hilarious. That fine little lady was a Christmas gift from one of my best friends, Megan. I absolutely had to capture a shot of that…it’s just a surprise to me that it’s taken this long.

But anyways, back to the crock. I started this recipe around 10am. I had a small serving before going to teach around 4:30 and it was certainly cooked and ready by that point. Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I assumed husband would turn OFF the crock pot when he got home around 5:30ish and after serving himself up a plate.

Silly me.

When I called at 8:30 on my way home from class, the man thought he was to wait for me to have dinner. I thought this was 1) kind of ridiculous of him to think — this is not the evening routine at all, but 2) really, really sweet. The point of that tale is two-fold.

  1. When it comes to men — spell it out. Literally. Note, email, text, voicemail…something. If yours is anything like mine, crcd.org.al/sports-betting-online he’s a little lot helpless at times.
  2. This meal can withstand durations roulette in the crock pot. Not to say that it gets any better over time, but if you leave this on for 8 hours – no biggie. It’ll be just fine.

    I was cooking sausage last week for lasagna and thinking about how much I love it. Which is probably why we’ll be having a sausage dish for dinner again tonight.

    So I just found this via google which I find funny since I read your blog anyway. But I have a question – do you think I can make this without sausage and add mushrooms?

      Too funny! I think it would work, yep..I would maybe cook it 2-4 hours on low since there’s no meat and the veggies may start to turn to mush with a long cooking time. But I definitely think it would work!
