Crock Pot Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

You know those nights where you think you have nothing to make for dinner?  Well, that’s what I was like the other day when I decided to make this delicious Crock Pot Sausage Peppers and Onions!  I grabbed the Sweet Turkey Italian Sausage I got on sale at Target from the deep freezer and the peppers and onions that I had left over from stir fry the night before and tossed it all in the Crock Pot.  I also had a half jar of marinara sauce in the refrigerator, so I put that in there too…for extra flavor!

The result?  AMAZING!!!

I did run out and grab hoagie rolls from Winn-Dixie, so I served the sausage, peppers, and onions in the roll and drizzled on some of the marinara sauce.  I went simple and served it with salads and french fries and we all loved it!  I made 5 links of sausage and there was a half of one left and some sauce…which I will gladly serve over pasta tomorrow night 🙂

Ingredients
  • 5 links Sweet Turkey Italian Sausage – feel free to use whatever sausage your family would enjoy!
  • 1 bell pepper – sliced
  • 1/2 onion – sliced – feel free to use more if you would like
  • 1/2 jar your favorite marinara sauce
  • Buns for serving if desired
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients in the crock pot
  2. Cook on low for at least 4-5 hours, I had mine in for 8 because we were out and about all day, it does NOT dry out or burn thanks to the sauce
  3. Serve on hoagie rolls if desired
  4. Enjoy!
Notes
You can definitely add more sausage links into your crock pot, 5 was just plenty for our family of 4. I wouldn’t increase the other ingredients as we had leftover sauce and some veggies. My kids wouldn’t add the peppers or onions into their hoagie, so if your whole family eats the veggies, you may want to consider adding in more.

  1. I love the idea of the sausage for a sub sandwich! Cooking in a slow cooker seals the deal…I love to add ingredients and walk away till it’s done!

  2. We use hot Italian sausage and I prefer my sausage grilled. Other than that, we’ve been eating these for years. They are good. I also like a provolone blend of cheese melted over top.

  3. This recipe looks easy enough and love the ingredients , never did this in a crockpot before, not sure why not, but will have to.

  4. I do this in my roaster.Usually cook up a weeks worth of food,freeze it for later eating,and waste no HYDRO that way!

  5. Delicious,I also added a minced garlic clove or 1/2 tsp Garlic powder. Also a dash of spicy sweet
    sauce to boost the punch a bit.

    1. That’s a great idea!! I thought about adding Red Pepper Flakes, but I wasn’t sure…love the idea of garlic and a bit of heat – thank you!

  6. OMG YUM!! This is simple and tasty! I think it would be great for a patio potluck or even just a family dinner. Thanks for sharing

  7. I love Crockpot recipes! This one sounds amazing!! I love that you used turkey sausage, as we don’t really eat pork in my family. I will definitely be trying this soon, thanks for sharing! 🙂
