"Wow, these were soooo good! I used turkey Italian sausage and a light zesty Italian dressing. When I was browning, the sausages, I also sauted the onion and peppers with a dash of salt so they would be cooked through when the sausages were done in the crockpot. In my crockpot, this took 3 hours to cook. To get the cheese nice and melty, I put the bun with the cheese in the toaster oven for a short time. Turned out perfect!"

"I have made this twice now. It is great. I've made it in the crock pot and I've made it in a skillet. I also used Johnsonville smoked brats the second time I made it and it was every bit as good as the first time. This has become a family favorite. I will continue to make this again and again."
