Sauerbrats the Slow Cooker Way

This is my version of Brats and Sauerkraut. The slow cooker makes it very easy to throw together on the morning and then get all my errands done on a weekend day without having to worry about making time to cook a delicious dinner for the family. All the ingredients could be prepped the night before to make it even easier to throw it together in the morning. I used 2 slices of green pepper, 2 slices of red bell pepper and 2 slices of yellow bell pepper rather than using all one color because I had them on hand after having leftover toppings from homemade pizza night, and I thought the different colors would give the meal more visual appeal. I used to hate sauerkraut as a kid, but my mother never rinsed it, which made it taste very sour. I find that rinsing the kraut takes away some of the sourness but still leaves a lot flavor. Italian sausage can be substituted for the brats.
