How to Make It
Combine first 8 ingredients in a 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in sausage.
* Cover and cook on LOW 4 1/2 hours or until thickened, stirring once after 3 hours. Stir in butter, and serve immediately.
Sausage Substitution Tip: Use andouille sausage or regular smoked sausage if you find the hot smoked sausage too spicy.
