A buddy of mine comes from a Polish family and he told me that on holidays, his family sits down to a big steaming bowl of sauerkraut. JUST sauerkraut! I bet that house has a pungent odor!!! One recipe that was handed down through the German side of my family was a recipe of very thick garlic mashed potatos with sauerkraut mixed in, formed into hamburger sized patties and pan fried. I tried it once, it was surprisingly good! :)

kraut recipes

Here's a recipe. Fry some bacon and remove meat when done ,leaving grease. Pour in sauerkraut and heat to boiling. While at a boil, spoon in dumpling batter,your own recipe, or the one on the biscuit box. Cook dumplings till done.They're great.

Sushi,

Buy some spare ribs (I prefer the country style). Dump your sauerkraut into a baking pan or casserole. Arrange ribs on top. Salt and pepper. Cover tightly with foil (or lid). Check a cookbook for time and temp. (I'm thinking 350 degrees but it has been awhile, so check!). When it is almost done, remove foil and let finish uncovered to brown. This goes great with mashed potatoes (you can make the sour cream and chive potatoes I posted) and baby peas. This is one of the best meals around!!

:) Barbara

Pour it in pan large enough to place a couple pounds of Keilbasa or Smoked Sausage. Do not cut the sausage....just prick it with a knife or fork to keep it from bursting. Cook the kraut on medium lfor about five minutes then add the sausage. Turn the heat down to medium low and cook for about 30 minutes. Serve this with mashed potatoes. This is one ofmy families favorite meals and it is so easy.
