I usually serve this with rolls or biscuits to round out the meal. For a variation on this dish, include frozen or fresh corn off the cob to add a sweetness to the overall flavor. Enjoy!
Crock Pot Smoked Sausage and Vegetables
2 packages smoked sausage
5 medium to large potatoes
3-4 14 oz cans green beans
1 tsp ground black pepper
Clean and cut potatoes into bite-size cubes and set aside.
Slice sausages into 1 inch pieces, making sure to reserve any liquid left in the packaging. There won't be much liquid but it makes a big flavor difference if you don't forget to keep it for later. Set aside.
Put the potatoes in the bottom of a 5 or 6 quart crock pot. Pour green beans over potatoes, including liquid in the cans. Sprinkle black pepper over top of green beans. Add the sausage and reserved liquid on top of the green beans. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
Stir halfway through cooking to make sure none of the goodness is getting charred. After 5 hours check the potatoes to make sure they are fully cooked. Scoop into individual serving dishes along with some rolls if you like.
