Shrimp and sausage cooked in a slow cooker, count me in! Any type of shrimp can be used, peeled, unpeeled, head on or off, frozen, or even cooked shrimp. The steps are different for each way so the first time you make this, take note of the times for use again. And from the author of this recipe regarding the shrimp "Pink is the key. Grey isn't cooked, white is over cooked."

Instructions
  1. Lightly butter the slow cooker pot. Add the corn and potatoes. Add the sausage on top.
Using Frozen Shrimp
  1. Add the shrimp on top of the sausage, place some lemon slices on the shrimp, pour in the chicken stock. Cover and cook on Low setting until the potatoes are fork tender and the shrimp are pink. Serve.
Using Fresh Shrimp
  1. Fresh shrimp can be peeled, deviened, tail attached or removed, or can be unpeeled with heads attached or removed. Peeled cooks faster than unpeeled. Just start the slow cooker on Low setting with the corn, potatoes, sausage and stock. Add the shrimp about 1 hour before you want to serve and some lemon slices, so when the potatoes are almost but not quite fork tender, add the shrimp and lemon slices and cook until the shrimp are pink. Serve.
Using Cooked Shrimp
  1. You can use shrimp you already boiled and are pink. Just start the slow cooker on Low setting with the corn, potatoes, sausage and stock. Add the shrimp about 20-30 minutes before you want to serve and some lemon slices, so when the potatoes are just about fork tender, add the shrimp and lemon slices and cook until the shrimp warmed through. Serve.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I get smoked sausage. For now I will say fair cost but sounds delicious!

Instructions
  1. Brown the sliced sausage in a pan for about 15 minutes, turning often to slightly brown the pieces.
  2. Preheat your oven to 180 C. Place the cooked and cubed potatoes in a baking dish and add the browned sausage and mix together.
  3. In a saucepan, mix together the butter, flour, milk, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup of cheese, stir continuously until smooth. Pours the sauce over the casserole, then sprinkle the remaining cheese on the top and then sprinkle with the paprika. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the top is golden brown, serve.
Recipe Notes

The smoked sausage is about 100 Baht/500 grams. For 4 servings this is about 74 cents per serving. When I go to Makro again I will get more accurate up to date pricing as well.

Variants. Think chopped bell peppers or cooked sliced mushrooms. Garnish with spring onions for a bit of color as well.

Instructions
  1. For the sausage, go with 250-500 grams, think spicy smoked sausage (Makro), brats, beer brats, English beef or pork bangers, or even large, quality hotdogs. If you choose to use homemade bulk sausage, think meatballs, such as Italian sausage, plain pork sausage, or even chicken sausage.
  2. In a large pot, heat the oil and cook the garlic and onion until the onion is starting to soften, then add the sausage, salt and pepper.
  3. When the sausage is browned up, add the tomatoes, sugar, heavy cream, and mix. Then add the pasta and water and mix well, cover and cook on simmer for 15 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes or so.
  4. After 15 minutes or when the pasta is tender, remove from heat, stir in the spring onion, cover and let sit for 5 minutes, serve with Parmesan cheese on top if desired.
  5. Served.
Recipe Notes

Sausage will be the costly item here if you buy it, much cheaper if you make it. For store bought smoked sausage, figure about 150 Baht for 500 grams. For 4 servings this is about $1.10 per serving, good value overall, and less for 6 servings.

Shortcuts: Heavy Cream, Sausage.
