This is an easy “throw it in the crockpot frozen” meal that I make when I need something i can throw together fast in the morning for dinner that night.
I like to use my home-canned tomatoes, but you can use store-bought – just use a 15oz can of crushed or petite diced tomatoes in place of the pint of home-canned tomatoes. My favorite peppers for this recipe are red peppers – but just use what you have on hand.
Easy Crockpot Sausage & Peppers
Easy italian sausage and peppers meal I serve on toasted steak rolls with melted cheese
- 4 ea Italian Sausages Link type – mild or spicy, whatever your preference
- 1 ea Bell Pepper Sliced
- 1/2 lg Onion Sliced
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 1 pint Crushed or diced tomatoes Canned or Store Bought (15oz can)
- 1 Tbsp Oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 4 ea Steak Rolls Or rolls of your choice
- 4 slices Mozzarella Cheese fresh is amazing on this
You can make this recipe even if your sausages are frozen
Throw the peppers, onions, tomatoes, garlic, salt, pepper, and oregano in the crock pot and mix up
Add in the sausages frozen or thawed – nestle them down in the pepper mixture
Cover and cook on low for approx 6 hours. If you have an older crockpot that cooks slower – I'd plan 6-7 hours if the sausages are frozen.
Serve on the toasted rolls with sauce spooned over the top – melt your cheese on top under the broiler and enjoy!
