“People say my sauerkraut tastes so good,” notes Debbi Barate of Dilltown, Pennsylvania. “To a package of prepared kraut, I add a diced sweet onion that’s been browned in butter and one to two peeled and sliced tart apples.”
Even people who claim not to like sauerkraut will enjoy this tangy side dish from Betsy Esley of Three Mile Bay in New York. She uses handy convenience products to make it as quick and easy as it is delicious. "It's also especially good served with ham or any pork dish," Betsy adds. "And the flavor is even better the next day—if you're lucky enough to have leftovers!"
This simple one-pan dish is a complete meal and takes little time to prepare . Whenever I served this to my family I felt they were getting a hearty meal. It became a favorite.

We often serve this hearty dish at family gatherings, and the men especially seem to enjoy it. My sister gave me this recipe about 15 years ago, and it has been a favorite ever since. The blend of ingredients is a pleasant surprise.
