Crock Pot Sausage and Peppers
Prep time: 15 mins
Total time: 6 hours 15 mins
  • 2 lbs Italian sausage links (10 links)
  • 4 bell peppers, any color, sliced
  • 5 medium onions, sliced
  • Hoagie rolls
  1. Slice the peppers and onions into strips or rings, and place in the slow cooker.
  2. Brown the sausage links in a pan, and transfer atop the peppers and onions.
  3. Cover and cook on low 5-6 hours or high 3-4 hours.
  4. If desired, toast hoagie rolls before adding the sausage, peppers, and onions.
  5. You can also add cheese, mustard, or marinara sauce if that floats your boat.

This was as good as the fair. I used one red, one green, one orange, and one yellow pepper. That made it really colorful, and it smelled wonderful. I did not brown the sausages, and they did brown really well on the top , but the undersides were pretty gray. That didn't seem to bother anyone at my house. I served it with ground mustard and melted cheese. Yummy!!


My family thought this was a make again for sure! I used 3 green peppers and 4 onions. I couldn't fit anymore in my crock. I browned my sausages first and would probably go that route again. I ate mine on a tortilla with horseradish and it was perfect! My husband ate it on hoagies and also thought they were great. I was surprised by the flavor these had since the recipe itself was so simple.


I loved both the simplicity and flavor of this meal. I seriously considered adding marinara to the slow cooker, but it was really good without. One of you needs to try it like that and tell me how it is!
