Crock Pot BBQ Ranch Sausage Meal

I needed a meal ready to go when I walked in the door after work and this meal fit the bill. This Crock Pot BBQ Ranch Sausage Meal is a FULL meal. Meat, potato, and veggie all cooked together and ready to serve.

The kids were surprised to see that this meal is what came out of the crock pot. Crock pot meals are not typically their favorite but there were no complaints at all as they ate this meal. It wasn’t my favorite but it wasn’t bad either.

My crock pot is a lifesaver. Even on those days when I can’t possibly find the time to make dinner, I can usually set my alarm for a little earlier to put together a crock pot meal in the morning. For this recipe, the prep is about 10 minutes and it only requires a 4 hour cook time. If you’re looking to invest in a new crockpot, be sure to get one with a digital timer. This prevents your food from overcooking but still keeps it warm so it is ready to eat when you arrive home from work.
