Sausage and Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is slowly simmered with brown sugar and apple to mellow out the tangy flavor, then baked with bacon and kielbasa sausage for a hearty German-inspired main dish that will warm you up.

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...


  • 2 pounds sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seeds (optional)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds kielbasa sausage, cut into 1-inch thick slices
