Any ideas on whether I can just steam these like you would a baked potato or an ear of corn? That is to say, slap, wrap, roll and toss into the slowcooker without adding additional water?

I have spent the better part of the morning googling because I was sure I remembered reading how to do it, but now can't find it anywhere and hope I didn't just make it up....

I found this, but that still requires water....

Since I don’t have a steamer, I used a 4qt slow cooker and a small steel colander, with two cups of water inside that didn’t come near the bottom of the colander. Turned it on high and closed it while making the sausages, then put them in and since the lid didn’t close entirely due to the colander handles, I used foil to close the gap. Put a dishtowel over it and then a pot to weigh it down. It took an hour instead of 40 mins, probably because I didn’t turn it on soon enough, but they came out the perfect texture, consistency, etc.

Fresh from the Vegan Slow Cooker uses liquid - I've always been taught slow cookers shouldn't run dry. I can PM you Robin's directions for steaming if you want.

They run dry when you do the steamed corn or baked potatoes though, I guess that is why I thought you could do it without a steamer insert?

Also, for anyone looking, this is a brilliant list of spice combos for your sausages.

Yeah I've never done baked potatoes or corn, I tend to use my cooker for just soupy stewy things, which is dumb.
