Polish Kraut and Apples Recipe

Publisher Photo
My family loves this hearty, heartwarming meal on cold winter nights. The tender apples, brown sugar and smoked sausage gave this dish fantastic flavor. I like making it because the prep time is very short. #151;Caren Markee, Crystal Lake, Illinois

I made this with turkey bratwurst instead of Polish sausage, and Cranberry juice instead of apple juice. It came out wonderfully amazing.

This is FABULOUS. I used Turkey Polish sausage to make it a bit healthier.

I've made this many times as is the custom to eat sauerkraut on New Year's Day in my family! I'm not big on kraut but like this recipe.

Simple and surprisingly delicious. I was trying different recipes after picking 33 lbs of apples. I can't wait to make this one again!
