German Sausage and Sauerkraut

Serves 4


Sausage is tucked into this seasoned sauerkraut and baked until the flavors are blended. Serve with pumpernickel bread and spicy applesauce, followed by ginger snaps for dessert.


1 jar (16 ounces) sauerkraut, rinsed and drained
1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup chopped red onion
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 tablespoon firmly packed brown sugar
1 pound smoked German sausage of your choice, sliced


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place all ingredients in a 2-1/2-quart casserole dish lightly coated with cooking spray or oil and mix well. Cover the sausage with sauerkraut.

Cover the dish and bake until heated through, 35 to 40 minutes.
