Spicy sausage, pepper and onions. Takes very little prep time and is great for potlucks. Inexpensive and makes alot. Very delicious kids and adults both liked it is very filling. I first took it to a church game night that was just supposed to be snack food but knew I would want something a little more filling than chips had several requests for the recipe. Which made me have to think because when I first made it I used what I had in the house. This is what I remember using. I used Bar-S brand polish sausage which is just a cheap sausage a pack of 3 lbs is about $4 ( found in with the hot dogs in the refrigerated section lunch meats and stuff). Could be used as an entree ( just serve it on a whole bun) snack or starter for a party I think.
- 2 lbs sausages
- 1 large green pepper, chopped (large dice)
- 1⁄2 cup frozen chopped red pepper (large dice)
- 1 large onion, chopped (large dice)
- 1 1⁄4 cups spicy barbecue sauce (Stubb's is the one I used)
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup ketchup
- 1⁄8 cup mustard
- 16 hot dog buns
- Cut each sausage into bite size pieces (fourths or fifths is what I did).
- Put the peppers, onion, bar-b-que sauce, ketchup, mustard and water in a bowl. Stir together. Pour half of the sauce in a crock pot.
- Add sausages stir
- Add rest of sauce.
- Cook on high at least 3 hrs (longer it cooks the thicker the sauce gets and the better it tastes) stirring about once a hour.
- Cut hot dog buns in half
- Serve mixture on buns and enjoy.
I did 4 hours on high in the crock pot. Prior review is correct - a little much for the pepper and onion. Just miss the brown color they usually get when I make them in the oven. However, a great alternative to making it all stove top! -
