Greek Sausage and Peppers

This recipe is an old family favorite. My grandmother, mother and I make this every year for Christmas Eve. Just toss all the ingredients in your slow cooker and let the meal cook all day on low. It makes the house smell amazing and is wonderful comfort food for a chilly holiday. You can double the recipe and freeze the other portion for a quick hot meal in a pinch. —Debbie Vair, Wake Forest, North Carolina
