Crock-Pot Sausage and Rice
So I normally make Sausage and Rice on the stove top, it happens to be my kids favorite meal. I just needed to find a way to adapt it for the crock-pot. I just don’t dare to try and cook the rice in the crock-pot with this kind of dish so it seemed futile until I realized I could just do the sausage by itself thus I was determined to do it. We are often so busy at dinner time with lessons and homework that it’s nice to not have to be babysitting dinner, and I also was needing to make a huge batch of it as we were providing a meal also for another family so I would be doubling the recipe. Previously I cooked up a huge batch of sausage for a different meal so I knew it would be easy to do. The hardest part is skimming off grease and frankly it’s easier to do it in the crock vs the stove top. It tasted just like our normal Sausage and Rice and the kids enjoyed! If you are not a family that uses pork sausage, a turkey or chicken sausage will work as well.
