Comfort food recipes shouldn’t be difficult to make. (The cravings are real). That’s what I love about this slow cooker sausage and potatoes recipe. You need only five ingredients and ten minutes of hands-on prep time. After your slow cooker steps in to do the hard work, you’ve got yourself a deliciously creamy, cheesy, savory bowl of goodness.  

My absolute favorite dinner recipes are those that require only one pan, one baking dish, or one pot. So, whether you’re cooking for yourself or a busy family, the simplicity of this sausage and potatoes recipe makes it perfect for a weeknight, while keeping clean-up to the bare minimum. Since this recipe is quite hearty, you could serve it as a main or pair it with a salad or veggie side dish.

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.
