"These were excellent! I did them covered, in a 250F oven for about 4 hours, since I don't have a slow cooker, and they were perfect. Served them over spaghetti! Really tender and full of flavour."

"Very good. I used beer brats, didn't brown them-just put everything in the cooker and started it. Put it on high for an hour then low for 3 hours, then on high for the last hour or so. I did have parmesan rinds that I keep from wedges that I added instead of the grated parmesan. I had an Italian blend shredded cheese that we used to sprinkle on top of sandwiches. Will definetely make again. With 4 boys ,I'm always looking for hearty and quick meals and this fits the bill."

"These sausages turn out so nicely, my entire family loves them. We make them whenever we want a quick meal or when we're at work and it's cooking while we're gone. They make an awesome dinner and are so easy to make, we're keeping this recipe for a long time to come."

"These sausages were soooo good! Truly melted in your mouth. Each bite just dissolved in your mouth with flavor. I only had hotdog buns on hand, but it probably would've been better with hoagie/brat buns since it just seeped through the buns, but still tasty! Definitely a keeper!"
