Slow Cooker Recipes - Sausage and Mixed Bean Casserole Recipe

Updated on September 28, 2012

Why this recipe?

We are fans of sausages in our house, especially good quality interesting sausages, so are always looking for new recipes to make them into something more interesting. Plus I am in love with my slow cooker, as you will see on my other Hubs. So a slow cooker recipe with sausages is great. So this recipe for a sausage casserole in the slow cooker is perfect.

This one is using lots of beans and great sausage meat - if you can't get sausage meat then just buy sausages and take the skins off. You can use any sausages so mixing up the flavour of them will change the taste of the dish, plus don't worry about the exact beans just use whichever ones you have. It is a super easy and super cheap recipe and I great meal for the whole family. A great way to get different beans into your kids as they taste so yummy after cooking for so long in the stock.
