Brats with Sauerkraut

This is an excellent main dish. The bratwurst can be plain, smoked or cheese-flavored, served whole or cut in slices, with a bun or without. It would be popular at a party or potluck.


8 servings


8 uncooked bratwurst links
1 (14 ounces) can sauerkraut, rinsed and well drained
2 medium apples, peeled and finely chopped
3 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon ground mustard
8 brat buns, split


Place the bratwurst in a 5-quart slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the sauerkraut, apples, bacon, brown sugar, onion and mustard; spoon over bratwurst. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours or until sausage is no longer pink.

Place brats in buns; using a slotted spoon, top with sauerkraut mixture.
