This recipe has a tasty tomato sauce and I do serve this meal with crusty bread to soak up the extra sauce. I alternate with different vegetables - choose your favourite vegetables for this recipe. Serve with steamed/boiled brown rice and crusty bread.

  • Scrumptious and hearty meal, will be one to make regularly I hope. Can’t wait to see what the kids think. Thanks for sharing!


  • Mmmmmm, a real hearty winter dish here. Comfort food to the max


  • This is the first time I’ve seen sausages in a slow cooker. Just need to find a nice sausage now, most are cheap and nasty


  • This sounds so yummy, so many ways to change it too. This has been added to my pinned list.


  • Wow, I really like the sound of this slow cooker recipe.


  • Love a good slow cooker recipe, especially using bacon and sweet potato, thanks :)


  • :D Yum! Thanks so much for sharing! :D


  • My son wants me to make this right now LOL – promised him I would during the week x


  • I am making no comment as it seems nearly everything I SAY IS A DUPLICATE COMMENT AND I HAVE ALREADY SAID THAT.


  • OMG you need full time to make this. Must be hard job


  • I just thought I’d let you know that I have your recipe in the slow cooker as I’m writing this. It appealed to me for a number of reasons: it yields a lot (I put 16 sausages in as they come in packs of 8). It looks tasty, I added an extra tin of diced herb, garlic and basil tomatoes, and I just crumbled a couple of stock cubes over the top and added a cup of water and stirred. I used herb and garlic sausages. There are only the two of us, and I’m fairly time poor, so I love recipes that are afffordable, with minimal preparation and you can put on and walk away to do other things. I think I will have to freeze some lol. I want to thank you, and if you have any more similar recipes and have the time to post them I would love to see them.

    • Thanks for the lovely comments hopefullyheidi – you are very welcome. I love creating in the kitchen and plan to come up with some new recipes this weekend after I visit the local farmers market. I will let you know how the experiments go! I love your additions to the recipe and it sounds delicious! Happy Slow Cooker Cooking! :)


  • A wonderful recipe; I can’t wait to create at home, thanks!.


  • I’ve just purchased a slow cooker and am looking for good recipes, will try this one, thanks!


  • Alas! I gave my slow cooker to someone who needed it more than I did. Perhaps I will buy another one!

    • I would be lost without my slow cooker! Grab another as they are brilliant in the kitchen!


  • Wow remarkably easy. This is my kind of recipe
