Key Ingredients and Replacement Options
Please see the recipe card for all ingredients and directions. In this section, I’m simply going to show some of the key ingredients and give possible replacement options if you can’t find these ingredients.
Potatoes – Obviously for a slow cooker sausage recipe you’re going to need potatoes. Feel free to use any type you like though.
Chicken Sausage – I chose to use chicken sausage because it’s already cooked and therefore easy to slice without crumbling. If you don’t have chicken sausage on hand though you can use whatever you have. Just use a sharp knife to carefully cut without smooshing it (although crumbled sausage would be delicious too).
Onion – Diced onion helps had a nice savory flavor. You could also add in some garlic.
Flour – A little bit of flour is added to help thicken this slow cooker sausage and potato casserole. Since it’s only a small amount you can use any type of flour. I used gluten free brown rice flour.
Salt – I wouldn’t leave this out, but you can add more or less based on your preferences.
Garlic Powder – Adds to that delicious savory flavor.
Paprika – I like paprika because I can’t tolerate much spice but I do love seasoning. If you like your food spicy feel free to add in some chili powder.
Nutritional Yeast – This is an awesome ingredient that helps add a “cheese” like flavor.
Reduced Fat Coconut Milk in a Can – Canned coconut milk is what gives this dairy free casserole a creamy texture. You can use reduced-fat or full fat for similar results.
