ingredients

2 pounds bratwurst (or other smoked sausage)
1 quart sauerkraut
1/2 cup brown sugar
ground black pepper to taste
hot mustard to taste

directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Layer sauerkraut in a 12 x 12 glass baking dish, and sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar. Score the sausages and place them on the sauerkraut. Bake for one hour.

cook's notes

On the infrequent occasions when I'm able to prepare this in my kitchen (usually when my wife is out of town) I serve it with a side of mashed potatoes and a dollop of hot mustard. Some folks drain the excess brine from their kraut prior to baking (but I don't), and some also add a sprinkle of caraway seeds (which I don't). One way or the other, this is a dish best eaten with close friends - friends who are appreciative of the gastrointestinally active, if you catch my drift...

I like my sauerkraut a little more on the tangy side so I use less brown sugar but otherwise follow the recipe exactly.

This recipe was great! I only used half the brown sugar because I was afraid it would be too sweet but it wasn't at all. I love this recipe and will make it again and again. I used turkey bratwurst and did include the caraway seeds. Utterly delicious and very satisfying on a cold night!

This was wonderful! It was very easy to prepare, and my family just loved it, even my small children. I highly recommend this. I prepared it as written with all ingredients except caraway seeds (didn't have any). Kevina's wife doesn't know what she's missing! Denise
