This Slow Cooker Green Beans Potatoes and Sausage recipe is one of my comfort food favorites!
Slow Cooker Green Beans Potatoes and Sausage
Well, here we are once again with a quick and easy slow cooker meal for those hectic days. I have learned that when we plan ahead and the more we use our slow cooker that we actually eat healthier.
There are always those days when things happen and plans change. And If I am not prepared for dinner, we end up grabbing something quick –which can usually lead to unhealthy choices.
This Slow Cooker Green Beans Potatoes and Sausage recipe reminds me of my childhood and it’s so easy to throw together and make.
Basically you can use any smoked sausage from the grocery store. If you already have a favorite brand or type, use that. I like the regular Eckrich Skinless Smoked Sausage sausage which you can find at Walmart. If you prefer shopping at Aldi for groceries, their brand is good as well. You can always change it up a bit to add some of your own favorite ingredients.
This Recipe is part of our Aldi Five Day Slow Cooker Meal Plan, which you can use to take the guesswork out of what to put on the shopping list, or what to have for dinner! It’s one of our most popular Aldi posts with good reason– we did the work for you! All you have to do is print it out and shop.
Green Beans and Sausage – Frugal Meal Ideal for Budgeting
One other thing– for our frugal shoppers– this recipe comes in at around 5 bucks for the whole family!! It’s the ultimate frugal meal if you’re trying to fit things into a tight budget but also have a variety of foods on the menu.
Remember, Prices on smoked sausage vary so I would recommend buying that on sale and then just freezing till you need it. On the other hand, the green beans and potatoes are going to be the same price for most of the year, aside from holidays when we can see some major sale prices on both.
Look for off brands on the green beans- as a frugal tip. You won’t notice any flavor differences after all the flavors have mixed together in your slow cooker! As I mentioned you can find all these ingredients at Aldi too, so no need to try to aim for big grocery sales or coupon if you don’t have time. Enjoy this recipe this week!
