Sausage Sauerkraut Supper
With big, tender chunks of sausage, potatoes and carrots, this meal-in-one has old-world flavor that will satisfy the heartiest of appetites. "A co-worker often made a big pot of this for our office staff, and it always disappeared in a hurry," notes Joalyce Graham of St. Petersburg, Florida.
