This is a meal my mom used to make on the stove. I adapted it to be a homemade freezer meal I can take out and throw in the crock pot later. Even though it’s a simple recipe, all the chopping can be more than I want to do on a busy day or an early morning! You can prepare the main ingredients (sausage, potatoes, and green beans) and freeze them in a large Ziploc bag to pull out for dinner on a busy night or throw in the crock pot Sunday morning before church.
- 1 package turkey smoked sausage
- 3-4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
- 2 cans of green beans
- 3-4 cups of water
- 1 package onion soup mix
- Chop sausage into bite-sized pieces
- Peel and cube potatoes
- Drain and rinse green beans
- Package and refrigerate or freeze
- Put frozen ingredients in a crock pot
- Sprinkle onion soup mix over the top.
- Cover with just enough water that ingredients are mostly covered.
- Cook on high for 2-3 hours.
Total Time: 2.5 hours
- To cut down on time, use canned potatoes instead (I don’t recommend this – flavor isn’t as good). If you do this, you only have to cook it on low for 1.5-2 hours.
- You can substitute 1 beef bouillon cube and dried, chopped onion for onion soup mix.
