One-Pot Sausage and Sauerkraut Dinner Recipe
  • Prick the sausages in a few places and brown in a large heavy saucepan or skillet. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of fat. If there is no fat, add 1 tablespoon butter.
  • While the sausages are browning, scrub, core and slice or dice the apple. Chop the onion. Add to the sausage and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Rinse the sauerkraut, squeeze it dry, and add to the pan along with a bay leaf and a few grinds of pepper. Add the stock and wine (or beer).
  • Scrub the potatoes and cut into egg-sized pieces. Leave whole if they are small. Add potatoes to the pan, pushing them well down into the juice with the sausage on top. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 20 - 30 minutes.
  • Remove bay leaf and serve in shallow bowls. Good with corn bread or crusty rye bread.
