Slow Cooker Smoked Sausage, Potato and Vegetable Bowl

Keep this recipe handy for when you’re short on time or long on things you’d rather do than cook.

Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

This one-pot comfort food meal is super easy to make and tastes so good.

It’s made with smoked sausage (precooked) that’s browned in a skillet before its added to the slow cooker pot.

Then vegetables, potatoes and broth are added to the pot, along with rice vinegar which adds some zing to the mix.

It’s so nice when all you have to do for a meal is grab a plate, or in this case a shallow bowl and dish up dinner right from the slow cooker pot.

I especially like that there’s broth along with the meat, veggies and potatoes.

It’s not a lot of broth like it would be for soup but it’s just enough to add another layer of light flavor to all of the ingredients.

It’s best if possible to serve this meal in a shallow bowl so that the delicious broth can be enjoyed with each bite.

Smoked Sausage and Potatoes

Although I used turkey smoked sausage in this recipe, to my taste buds, the beef or pork (or combination of both) have a bit more flavor.

But the turkey smoked sausage does seem to be a bit less greasy than the beef and pork varieties.

This dish tastes really good when served with some butter on top of it so that it melts on top of the vegetables and potatoes.

And grated parmesan cheese makes a wonderful topping as well.

Serve this one-pot meal for dinner any time of the year.  Comfort food is always a good thing.

TIP – Turkey smoked sausage doesn’t have as much fat in it as the beef, pork, or beef & pork combination does.  So if the turkey smoked sausage gets dry when browning it, a little bit of olive oil can be added to the pan.
