Sausage and Sauerkraut


"This is a recipe from a sweet old German lady I used to attend church with. Allow for plenty of time to prepare and cook this dish. It is definitely worth the time and effort! Serve with hot German potato salad and red cabbage."

  1. Place the sauerkraut, caraway seeds, brown sugar, and apple into a large saucepan over medium-low heat, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce heat to low, and cook for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Place the bacon and onion into a skillet over medium heat, and cook until the bacon is almost crisp and the onion is beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir the bacon mixture into the sauerkraut. In the same skillet, brown the kielbasa sausage in the remaining bacon grease until the sausage begins to brown, 10 to 15 minutes; stir into the sauerkraut mixture. Spoon the sauerkraut and sausage mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 1 hour.

I did not add the apple and omitted the bacon. Also, I substituted Italian sausage for the Kielbasa. I feel that kielbasa is too greasy. Came out great.

Great recipe! Our whole family enjoyed this dish. I would definitely recommend using the caraway seeds.

My rating is based on the actual recipe given. This is a classic, homestyle recipe with great flavors. The only thing I did differently after tasting the original is add a pinch of salt and pe...
