I recommend using smoked sausage for this recipe, but I’ll leave it up to you what kind of sausage you want to use if you have something different on hand. Pork sausage, chicken sausage, and Italian sausage will all work great. Just don’t use frozen hot dog sausages—save those for the next American-style picnic.

If you want to add veggies to this dish, feel free. Green beans, broccoli, or bell peppers would be my top picks.

    1. No, I don’t dilute the soup. It will be a bit thinner after cooking. But if you think it’s too thick, feel free to add 1/4 cup chicken broth. Hope that helps.

  4. I follow your blog for all the slow cooker recipes, and by far this is the easiest I’ve tried at home 🙂
