Crock Pot Autumn Sausage

My husband and I have a long standing Tuesday night date night. Most of the time, I make something special for us. Other times, he’ll pick up something for us on his way home from work as a treat. But that means that there are 4 kids who still need to eat dinner.

Usually I try to have leftovers for them or I’ll make them a regular dinner that will reheat well for lunch the next day. That was the motivation behind this meal. I actually veered a little from that normal routine because I had a few small portions of things that I wanted to use – including half a bag of li’l smokies sausages and one sweet potato. I knew those two would work together and I figured I could add an apple from our large stash and come up with something seasonal and easy.


Crock Pot Autumn Sausage

  • 1/2 lb. smoked sausage, cut into wedges
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 1 large apple, peeled and cubed
  • 1 T. flour
  • 2 T. brown sugar
  • 1/2 t. cinnamon
  • 1/8 t. each nutmeg and allspice

1. Add the first three ingredients to a crock pot.

2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar and seasonings. Stir into the crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours, until potatoes and apples are tender.

This would make enough for two adults easily. It fed my four kids with a bit leftover. It could be easily doubled to feed a family of four to six, depending on serving size. And the autumn smell that fills your house will be amazing!

  1. Looks and “smells” divine… meaning I can almost smell it cooking away.

    ** I wonder how it would be if you would sprinkle a few toasted walnuts on top to serve??? Just a thought…

  2. This looks so good and I will be trying out the recipe! I think I will add some yellow onion, though. I just really love onions in everything! Great post!
