It is one of those meals that takes only minutes to prepare and comes in handy when your time is needed elsewhere.

No standing over a hot stove waiting for the potatoes to boil. And no standing over a hot skillet with grease spattering out towards you while you brown the sausage.

Simply throw everything in the slow cooker, and dinner is ready whenever you are! And best of all, this recipe calls for just 7 common ingredients.

This recipe starts with sausage, onions and frozen potatoes in the slow cooker.

And that means no crazy trips to the grocery store to pick up that one spice or one ingredient that you hope is stocked at the local market.

This recipe has been such a huge hit in our house that we have made it several times for dinner. It also makes a great addition to any potluck, holiday gathering, or a gifted meal to a family member or friend.

Slow Cooker Sausage & Potato Casserole

The first step in this recipe is to spray your slow cooker with non-stick spray. If you like to use the slow cooker liner bags, you could use that instead.

cream of chicken mixture
The creamy sauce consists of cream of chicken soup, milk and sour cream.

Next, cut your sausage into bite size pieces, approximately in 1 inch sections. You can use any type of sausage that you like.

This time we chose to make it using Chicken Sausage. However, we have also made it with Kielbasa, hot Italian, and turkey sausage and they have all turned out fantastic!

Once you have the sausage cut, place it in the slow cooker. Then add the potatoes, diced onions, and two cups of the shredded cheese. Stir to combine.

Add the creamy sauce on top of the potatoes and sausage and stir.

Now in a small bowl, combine your cream of chicken soup, sour cream and milk. Then pour it in the slow cooker over top of the potato and sausage mixture.

Stir until well combined and the potatoes and sausage are coated. Before adding the lid, sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

cheese topping
Top the mixture with a little shredded cheddar cheese before cooking.

Cook on Low for 6 hours or High for 3-4 hours. However, just a word of caution. You don’t want to overcook this recipe. Otherwise the potatoes will lose their texture and become more like mashed potatoes.

Although, this has happened to me before, and the sausage and potato casserole is still delicious after spending some extra time in the slow cooker!
