Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

Note: This is a recipe from Rival, maker of the Crock Pot.

1 medium onion, diced
1 1/2 lbs. Italian sausage, removed from casing
6 medium red potatoes, diced
1 medium tomato, diced
1 cup fresh or frozen kernel corn
1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley, minced
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

In a medium skillet, saute the onion and brown and crumble the sausage.  Drain any fat and transfer sausage and onions to the Crock-Pot slow cooker.  Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well to combine thoroughly.  Cover; cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours (or on High for 3 to 4 hours), or until the potatoes are tender.  Makes 6 servings.

Note: Choose your favorite style of Italian sausage to make this dish memorable or try a sweet or extra spicy style as an exciting variation.

One of Rival's many Crock-Pots.
