You’ll need a Crock Pot:

This is the crockpot I am using and I love it. I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.


  • Whole Baby Potatoes
  • Smoked Sausage

What type of sausage is in this recipe?

I used smoked sausage in this recipe and it worked great. However, you can definitely use your favorite type in this recipe. Turkey sausage would be delicious and will lower the fat content in this recipe.

Andouille sausage would be delicious in this easy slow cooker recipe as well.

Also, you can easily use Kielbasa sausage to make crockpot kielbasa and potatoes.

What to serve with Crock Pot Sausage and Potatoes?

  • Serve it with a salad. – Serve it with a simple side salad. It makes me feel better having a side salad with this hearty meal.

Variation Ideas:

  • Add Cheese. – If you want to try something new, add cheese to the recipe. My kids love when I top this recipe with cheese. They call it cheesy potatoes and ask for this all of the time. I also love topping mine with a little bit of sour cream.
  • Add Veggies. – You can also add in some vegetables to potatoes and sausage for extra veggies. Green beans, carrots or red peppers would all be delicious in this recipe. Add these in for the last 2-3 hours so that they don’t get over cooked.
  • Make it Creamy. – Try adding cheddar cheese soup, cream of chicken soup or cream of celery soup to this slow cooker recipe. Mix the cream soup with the chicken broth before adding it into the crock pot.
  • Add some Spice. – If you love spicy foods, add in 1-2 tsp of Creole seasoning when making this recipe to add a little kick to this dinner.
  • Add a Ranch Flavoring. – If you love the flavor of ranch, stir in a ranch seasoning packet with the chicken broth before adding it to the crock pot to change up the flavor on this recipe.
  • Use your favorite type of Potatoes. – I used whole baby potatoes in this recipe but you can easily use any of your favorite instead. Peeled and diced Russet potatoes or sweet potatoes would all be delicious in this crock pot recipe.
  • Leave out the Tomatoes. – If you don’t love tomatoes, you can easily leave them out or use a tomato sauce instead.

How to Store:

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

You can also freeze the leftovers as well. Store in a freezer safe container for up to 2-3 months. Allow the leftovers to defrost overnight in the refrigerator when you are ready to enjoy them.

Be careful when reheating any leftovers so that the potatoes don’t get too soft.

    I make this but leave out the tomatoes, didn’t care for it the first time I made it. I also add a tsp. or so of Tony Cacheres seasoning. In the summer, I do fried green tomatoes as the side.

  2. Carrie Barnard says:

    I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for sharing!

  3. Carrie Barnard says:

    Yes, I think that would be delicious in this recipe.

  4. Jenn says:

    I love how this is a base for tossing in what one likes (or has on hand). If it taste as good as it smells, then I’ll be sticking it to my fridge with a special magnet. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Hazel Moug says:

    Would you be able to use Dutch smoked sausage in this recipe ???

  6. Carrie Barnard says:

    You can substitute with crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, or just leave it out all together.

  7. Joanne Bliss says:

    What can you substitute for the diced tomatoes or is it OK to leave them out? Husband has diverticulitis and cannot eat seeds.

    We’ll make this again. We followed the recipe exactly except we had a 29 oz. can of diced tomatoes that we used. It had more liquid than we anticipated, but we thought that may have been from the larger can of tomatoes. The recipe calls for a can of diced tomatoes, but it did not say what size. Everyone enjoyed this and leftovers were just as good (if not better) today. Thanks for all the good recipes.

  10. Sandy Neuber says:

    Must try this, looks really good.

  11. Carrie Barnard says:

    You do not have to. We didn’t.

  12. Lisa PepperLisa says:

    Do you need to drain the diced tomatoes?

  15. Carrie says:

    Sounds delicious – Thank you so much for sharing!

  16. Karen Binanti says:

    i use chicken broth it is a fantastic flavor with it all and a 12–14 oz can of tomatoes

  17. April L. says:

    I was wondering about this, too… Please let us know what size can of diced tomatoes and what flavor broth to use. Thanks!

  18. Laurie says:

    Hi! I was wondering what size can of diced tomatoes and what flavor broth?
