This delicious slow cooker sausage and peppers dish is great if you need to feed a few heads. The flavours in this dish are absolutely amazing with a light but fulfilling tomato and bell pepper sauce with succulent Italian sausages.
Depending on what you feel like you can eat these on top of some potato mash, rice or even zucchini pasta. Alternatively, you can have it in a hot dog roll and it is just so good.
This is a pretty good dish to eat the next day for lunch so if you have leftovers then be sure to keep them. You can also freeze this dish for later just make sure you keep it in an airtight container. When you go to reheat this dish make sure you do it in the microwave, hot pan or a hot oven.
Even though this is usually a lunch or dinner dish you can easily have this as a breakfast. It will go pretty well with some hash browns, eggs and some bacon.

Serve & Enjoy
Browning of the sausages is completely optional but I highly recommend doing it to reduce the amount of oil in the final dish. You will also find that it does help add a bit of a different texture to the sausages.
If you can’t get your hands on italian sausages then any kind of fat sausage will do. Just keep in mind the fattier the sausage is the more fat will pool in the slow cooker. Simply just skim this off at the the end of cooking.
