Slow Cooker Sausage and Rice Casserole

I like to joke that my slow cooker is my second husband. I spend about as much time with my slow cooker as I do my husband ha! Anyways, by now, you know that I love an easy and delicious slow cooker meal. As a busy mom, casseroles and slow cooker recipes help to save not only my time and my sanity. Recently, I had some sausage that I needed to use and was getting tired of eating it for breakfast, so I found a way to add it to our dinner rotation. This slow cooker sausage and rice casserole is a hit!

This looks amazing! I feel the same way about my Instant Pot as you do your slow cooker. Sigh. What a time to be alive! :-D
