Crockpot Sausage with Peppers & Onions is a freezer meal recipe that will be added to my monthly menu plan asap! This is another meal that I made while doing my slow cooker freezer meal recipes. I recently spent an afternoon making 10 Crockpot Freezer Meals and during that time I made this recipe and a previous featured recipe — Crockpot Cheeseburger Soup which was a family hit!
You can make this recipe as is and cook right away or make as a freezer meal for future use. To make as a freezer meal be sure to write these directions on the bag – Thaw in fridge 24 hours. Cook on low 6 hours or on high for 4 hours. Serve with warm hot dog buns or a salad. Be sure to make Crockpot Sausage with Peppers & Onions you will not be disappointed!
Best of all this is great for game day! Just sit back, relax, and imagine you’re at the Big Game while you watch it on TV. This year, forget that you’re in your Lazy Boy and feel like you’re really at the game when you bring your tailgate indoors. Chicken wings, guacamole, chili and cheesy dips were America’s top choices for March Madness entertaining last year. This year, try something new and serve Brats in a slow cooker. Turn your living room into a tailgater’s paradise with the addition of Johnsonville Brat Crock!
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker. A great way to save money is to purchase your meat in bulk from ZayconFresh.
- 1 lb Johnsonville Italian Sausage Brats
- 1 large green pepper, sliced
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 2 cups diced tomatoes
- 2 tsp onion powder
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- Place all ingredients in freezer bag, mix well and freeze until ready to use.
- When ready to cook, thaw overnight in fridge.
- Place all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low 6 hours.
- Serve on warm hot dog buns or with a salad.
TIP: If you are not going to prepare this as a freezer meal you can grill your brats but don’t cook them all the way, just enough to brown (sear) the outsides and add grill markings. Using a fork prick several holes in the seared brats and follow the recipe but reduce your cooking time to 4 hours.
