Slow Cooker Shrimp and Sausage Dinner

Any sort of shrimp works for this recipe. It can be frozen, peeled or cooked. Just about any sort works. The kicker is what kind of shrimp you use makes a difference on both when you toss it in the crock pot AND how long it cooks. Size, fresh, frozen and with or without the shell all make your recipe instructions different. No worries! Just read through the directions up top in the post and watch for the shrimp to look pink. Pink is the key. Grey isn't cooked, white is over cooked. Just pay a little attention to the shrimp, make sure your taters are cooked and it'll be awesome.
