This is actually a very light dinner, contrary to popular belief that sauerkraut with sausages is a fall or winter dish for hearty appetites. The tangy kraut is a very nice change of pace.
We used our homemade sauerkraut for this dish, and it was so delicious. I want to make more sauerkraut so we can make this dish again, it is that good!
Sauerkraut and Kielbasa
adapted from: Fix it and Forget It, New cookbook
5 slices bacon
1 medium onion, diced
2 pounds sauerkraut - drained
2-3 T brown sugar
1 pound kielbasa, cut on the diagonal into 3/4 inch slices
Saute the bacon until crisp, lay on paper toweling to drain. In the drippings, saute the onion. Remove from skillet and allow to drain off excess fat.
Crumble the bacon slices, and mix with the sauerkraut, onion, brown sugar and sliced kielbasa in a 5qt slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours.
