Crock Pot Sweet and Sour Sausages


We interrupt  my Cooking Through My Collection Series for my crock pot sweet and sour sausages.

If you follow me on Facebook then you probably saw my update last week about the picture for this recipe. In case you missed it, here is what I said,

I changed things up and made a crock pot dinner tonight. It tasted really good, but it looks really ugly in photos. Now the question is share it or not share what I did?

Well, you all wanted me to share the recipe, so today I am sharing it. This is one of those really easy, crazy days, it is what I had in my fridge type recipes. So easy and so good.

This is not a fancy meal at all. It is pretty basic and honestly does not look the most appetizing, but it really tasted great.

You know what, sometimes good food is not that pretty. We seem to be focused on a Pinterest and magazine picture perfect world. The reality is that it is not reality.

I wish I had the time to make every meal picture and magazine perfect, but I don’t. Life is busy, life is real, and real life dinners don’t usually look like those from magazines or Pinterest Boards.

So today I am keeping it real and sharing this recipe with all of you. I hope you enjoy it!

We had this just on its own with potatoes on the side, but this would be really good over rice and that is how I will serve it next time. And if you have green peppers or onions you could easily add those to this as well. I was out of both or I would have added them in.

  1. We love sausage at our house, and boy does this sound good. I’ve got gears grinding in my head trying to figure out how to reduce the sugar in it. Since my husband has diabetes, BBQ sauces with their high sugar content are not a staple in our house. I think I’ve got a list of make-your-own condiments to start with somewhere.

  2. Thank you for sharing this recipe! You are so right, so many people are wrapped up in how food should look instead of how it tastes. Pinterest and magazine photos have helped us create an unrealistic expectations of how things should look or be. Don’t hesitate to post recipes that aren’t “pretty”, I would take a recipe that tastes good any day 🙂

  3. This recipe really came in handy last night, thanks so much for sharing. We have had a busy few days since we found two abandoned 4 week old kittens! They are doing great, but boy are they a lot of work 🙂 I did add a bell pepper and onion and served it over rice. My hubby said “this is good” between mouthfuls 🙂 For him that’s about the best compliment you get! I was happy to make a dinner that I used things I had on hand, took very little prep and everyone loved that’s what really matters not pretty pictures.

    Sounds delish!! With Onions and peppers, you could also serve it wrapped in a tortilla.

  5. This does sound yummy. Haha, I saw the pic before I read the article and thought the pic looked yummy. This is a recipe I’ll be trying. Thanks for sharing so much with us!
