"This dish is delicious and easy. I browned the brats first and cooked for 4-3/4 hrs in the crock, which was a bit too long. Would add a bit more potato, sausage and apple juice next time. Johnsonville has very flavorful brats. Will definitely make again."

"My family and friends have gotten to enjoy this dish many times. Its a great fall supper when the weather cools off, and its easy to make ahead for a crowd. Make too much, cause its even better as left-overs."
