Slow Cooker Tips
Before you start to think about recipes with your slow cooker here are a few tips which may help.
If you find your meal is a bit watery take the lid off and turn it up high for half an hour this can help evaporate some of the water.
Using Slow cooker liners can save washing up if you are making something that often sticks.
Remember that nothing evaporates so you may need less liquid than in other recipes eg on the hob.
The importance of adding vegetables to your meals
If you follow Slimming World then you will know many vegetables are referred to as speed foods.
Vegetables are low in calories compared to their density. This essentially means that they fill you up with very few calories.
The more vegetables you have in a meal either as a side dish or mixed in with the meal itself the lower-calorie the meal tends to be. A filling but low-calorie meal is perfect for weight loss.
All my recipes, including this slow cooker sausage casserole, include vegetables where possible but do feel free to add more as an accompaniment when you can.
Why you should try this slow cooker sausage casserole
This recipe is so easy to make you could do it in your sleep, pretty much! Simply cook and brown the sausages if you prefer and add everything to slow cook while you get on with other things. It really is fuss-free!
If you have made this before and want to make a few adaptions then the ones I would suggest are:
Add cannellini beans for extra protein. This is a great addition for vegetarians or those trying to increase the protein in their diet.
Put it in a casserole dish to cook in the oven for a quicker dish, I would recommend around an hour depending on the dish you use.
Add a vegetable or beef stock cube for a bit of extra salt and flavour if you prefer.
Unofficial Slimming World Sausage casserole shopping tips
I try to ensure all of the recipes I make are accessible to everyone. By this, I mean that they do not use obscure hard-to-find ingredients.
I also believe that recipes should use as few ingredients as possible and avoid expensive ingredients.
We would all much rather spend money on holidays than expensive ingredients wouldn’t we?
Buying herbs and spices in bulk is something I really recommend. It can save a lot of money in the long term but also mean you never run out!
I find putting them on Amazon subscribe and save can help too!
Shopping around or using a comparison app to see which shops have offers on your usual products. It can make a big difference to your weekly shopping bill if the sausages you use in the sausage casserole are on offer for example.
Additionally don’t forget to check out the yellow sticker reductions and freeze what you can.
Frozen vegetables are nutritionally just as good as fresh usually so do keep an eye for those too to save money. They are often not as good in the slow cooker though as can go mushy so bear that in mind.
Do you have any particular frozen vegetables you love? Do share them with me it is always nice to hear people’s recommendations.

If you are making the casserole with different sausages, eg because I am vegetarian or people have different preferences then the sausages will need to be cooked separately and added in to each portion at the end.
