Stove Top Directions

  • Cook on stove top until potatoes are done about 45 minutes to an hour. Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!


I usually brown my sausage and onion in bacon drippings on top of the stove before putting in crock pot. It just adds some extra flavor to this dish but it is not necessary to do so. We love lots of extra black pepper added before serving, too.
