Reviews for Brat Sauerkraut Supper
"This dish is delicious and easy. I browned the brats first and cooked for 4-3/4 hrs in the crock, which was a bit too long. Would add a bit more potato, sausage and apple juice next time. Johnsonville has very flavorful brats. Will definitely make again."
"made it half a dozen times, easy, and always a hit, i don't bother with the apple but everything else is the same..i use Johnsonville stadium brats, i like them best..i never liked sauerkraut til I had this..thanks!"
"This is sooooo good. Everyone in my family loves it, especially my husband. I make it often."
"I used smoked turkey sausage and turkey bacon to make it healthier."
"My family and friends have gotten to enjoy this dish many times. Its a great fall supper when the weather cools off, and its easy to make ahead for a crowd. Make too much, cause its even better as left-overs."
