This is truly one of my favorite summertime meals.

The ingredient list is super simple and you don’t need to do any kind of babysitting. Nope, the crockpot takes care of all the hard work for you, making it perfect for get-togethers and summer entertaining.

Simply throw everything right into your slow cooker for about 4 hours, adding in the sausage, corn and shrimp at the very end of cooking time to avoid any kind of overcooking. I mean, no one is a fan of overcooked rubbery shrimp, right?

Just be sure to use a large enough slow cooker (either 6 or 7 qt) to make sure everything fits.

When ready to serve, crank out some of those ice cold beers, melted butter, lemon wedges and hot sauce. This will truly be the best thing you serve all summer long.
