I was hoping to have some leftovers of this dish, but my family enjoyed it so much it was gone at supper!I didn't find it dry because i used fresh diced potatoes that I sauteed in bacon fat until they were like hash browns. I also used chorizo instead of sausage, which added a lot of flavor.

This was really good, but after mixing it all together it seemed pretty dry, so added more vinegar/sugar/mustard. Will definitely make again with those tweaks.

Great flavor, I doubled the recipe and combined it all in a crock pot.

It's just okay and on the dry side: my preference would be to increase the cider/mustard sauce, definitely add more bacon (!), use a sausage with more flavor than a brat, and decrease the potatoes and sauerkraut somewhat.
