Want a meal so simple and delicious that your husband will not only want it made, but be willing and able to throw it together himself?! Have I got a recipe for you! Crockpot Green Beans, Potatoes & Sausage
This recipe is one that Michael has always cooked on the stove, so I thought we should give it a try in the crockpot. And man did it cROCK!
It is hard to decide what the best part was…that it was simple enough for Michael to throw together before he went to work (he doesn’t go in until 9:00 and we live 3 minutes from his office versus me working 30 minutes from home and have to drop off Ryder and have a start time of 7:30)…or maybe it was that it smelled heavenly even on my back porch…or maybe it was that I was able to get out a bowl as soon as I got home for me and Ryder to eat as soon as it cooled! It is just too hard to choose the best part!
I knew this was something that I wanted to make this week, but wasn’t sure how I was going to pull off peeling potatoes and getting to work on time…this girl is NOT a morning person. Snooze buttons were made for a reason people! So I batted my eyelashes and put on my prettiest smile and asked Michael to pitch in on this one. Besides, 9:00-5:00 is 8 hours, and we were completely guessing about what kind of time it would take to cook, so I didn’t really want it to get turned on until 9:00 anyway. He’s a good hubby and said yes…and I leaped for joy!
After washing, peeling and cutting up your potatoes, throw them in the bottom of your crockpot. Then add your onion. Next throw in your sausage. Followed by your green beans, salt, pepper and a LITTLE bit of red pepper. (This girl is a wimp when it comes to spicy food…it truly hurts me if there is any good amount of heat at all. I’m weird, I know.) Remember that you can always add more salt, pepper and red pepper later once all the flavors have really mixed together, so I usually start with just a little of each.
Cover, don’t peek and come back 8 hour later to a scrumditiliumptious meal!
