Slow Cooker Angus Sausage & Onions Recipe

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Hillshire Brand Company but, as always, all of my opinions are my own. #pmedia #buy3save3  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

One of the funnest things about moving is getting to know your new neighborhood and finding that perfect store to go to for groceries.

Mr. B and I ventured out a few weekends ago and, because I needed a few items, stopped into the local Safeway store.  

I haven't shopped at a Safeway in quite a while because there wasn't one really close to our old house but let me tell you! I have found "my store".

This Safeway had wide aisles, nice lighting and we both agreed, it just felt like a small town market.  

They also displayed the food so nicely!  
Not all thrown about like a gorilla had been pawing through it. 
And that is why these packages of Hillshire Farm Angus Beef Smoked Sausages caught my eye!

Now I don't know about you but, with working full time, moving and just life in general, we get so busy! Those of you that have kids and their activities? 
I have no idea how you do it!  

Those are the times I rely on my trusty slow cooker and quick and easy recipes so that when we finally do get time to sit and eat, it's hot and ready!

Which brings us back to those sausages! One of Mr. B's favorite slow cooker meals is Slow Cooker Sausage & Onions.

You probably have all of the ingredients on hand but if you don't, this is your lucky week my friends because right now,if you have signed up for the Just For U program at Safeway stores, when you buy three Hillshire Farm products, you’ll save $3! Hurry though, this offer ends Saturday October 19th!


Slow Cooker Angus Smoked Beef Sausage & Onions

2 - 12 oz packages of Hillshire Farm Angus Beef Smoked Sausage, cut into 4-inch pieces
1/2 Cup honey mustard
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
18 ounces of your favorite beer (the darker the beer, the deeper the flavor. Since it's Fall, I used an Octoberfest style) or chicken stock
2 medium onions, quartered

Combine honey mustard and brown sugar in slow cooker: whisk in beer or chicken stock. Add sausage pieces and onions. Stir to combine. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours. Serve over cooked egg noodles.

For our dinner this night I added a romaine salad with kalamata olives and Gorgonzola cheese crumbles.

A thick slice of crusty bread to sop up the awesome sauce 
would have been perfect but, hey, I'm busy, remember?! 
I lost track of time and forgot to pick some up LOL!

  6. That looks really yummy. I can't have beer because it's not gluten free, but I'll bet one of the hard ciders on the market now would give it a good fall kick. :-)

    1. Laura - There is a beer called Red Bridge that is gluten free. It's available in my area, but I'm not sure if it is national.
