Put the lentils in the bottom of a crockpot. Add in the chicken broth, carrots, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce, parsley, garlic powder, celery salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in the sausage. Cover and cook until the lentils are tender, about 8 to 10 hours. Before serving remove the bay leaf and add 1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar, if desired.
