Sauerkraut, Bratwurst, Kartoffelbrei
Grey--this is german soul food.
Here's a twist on Kraut which you'll hopefully dig, Mutti thinks I'm a idiot for ruining good kraut, but see for yourself:
28 ounces Kraut
1.5 pounds andouille (cajun) saugsage--thinly sliced or cubed. About an 1/8 inch or cubed
1 large onion, yellow sliced
2 tlbs garlic minced
2 bay leafs
and believe it or not
1/4 to 1/2 cup brown sugar
sear sausage/onions till translucent. Mix with other ingredients and put in oven 325 degrees, for an hour and a half.
Serve with german potatoes.
My mom tried it for the second time, and my Dad tells me she makes it in secret--and doesn't share
I'm making this right now! I had too make this after seeing your recipe. It has another 35 minutes in the oven. The kitchen smells sooooooo good!
It's divine. Do enjoy! What sides are you making?
Since we've been eating a lot of potatoes as side dishes, I opted for just the dish itself with some marble rye (slathered in butter) and whole grain mustard on the side.
I really liked the subtle sweetness the brown sugar added. I added 1/4 cup. Will definitely make this again!
Now I want to make it!
Don't know if I can find any cajun saugsage though.
I couldn't find Andouille sausage so used kielbasa.
TM said to sear the sausage and cook the onions until translucent but since I was running low on time, and since the sausage was already fully cooked anyway, I just added all the ingredients into the baking dish. I put the sauerkraut in first (thoroughly squeezed all the water out in a strainer first), then rough diced one onion, minced 3 garlic cloves, cubed the sausage, and added 1/4 cup brown sugar and two bay leaves. I greased the baking pan before layering the ingredients in too and then covered the dish with foil. I stirred it halfway through the baking time and then took the foil off the last 30 minutes.
