"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." — DOEMARK

sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1/2 pounds
kielbasa sausage, cut into 1-inch thick slices
Great dish. I made the recipe as described, but cooked in it in the slow cooker, and added 1/2 cup apple juice so it wouldn't dry out. Will make again.
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.
Why do people like Dee say they made a recipe but the completely change all the main ingredients? Then they say it's not good. I made it and it's very good. I don't like caraway seed, so I left that out, but that was optional. Serving suggestions by the original poster are exactly right on.
Great recipe! Our whole family enjoyed this dish. I would definitely recommend using the caraway seeds.
My family loves sauerkraut and they said this was the best recipe yet! I followed the recipe, except I used 2-2 lb bags (4 lb) of sauerkraut (I mentioned my family likes sauerkraut...). I did not double the remaining ingredients. I put the sauerkraut in my large crockpot, sauteed the bacon and onion and then added it with the sugar and apple. I did not use caraway. I browned some country ribs and placed them on top along with several smoked sausage (I like brats, but, only had the smoked sausage). I let it slow cook all day. I made mashed Yukon Gold potatoes to go along with the meal. The family raved about it! Thanks for the recipe!
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 pepper. Very nice recipe, thanks for sharing it.
This was so good. I made it in the slow cooker. Cooked and crumbled the bacon then just threw it all in with about a half cup of apple juice as another reviewer suggested. Turned out perfect served over mashed potatoes. Will make this one often!
I made this exactly according to recipe, cooking this in my cast iron skillet so it could go from stovetop to oven easily. I used Uncle Charley's sausage in this recipe and I served this with Meme's Mashed Potatoes. Not only did I love it but so did my husband and kids. Surprized the heck out of me, I thought for sure they'd hate it. NO leftovers and the boys asked me to make this again soon.
