Loved this! Pretty much going to be what I measure other brats and kraut recipes against.

This was my first time trying this recipe and it's good. My husband enjoyed and it's a recipe we can make it again.. The only thing we notice is the sauerkraut was very dark in color after it was done nothing like the pic of recipe showing, why is that?

I'm making this today. I'm a little afraid that there's no liquid in it but I'm going with the recipe anyways but I did double up on the sugar cause I like it sweet so I'll let you know.I'm only giving it three stars cause I haven't tried it yet but it's super simple to make.

I make this once a week. My family loves it! I use 10 brats, and I add a half of cabbage quartered. Delicious!

This was delicious! I followed the recipe except used a jumbo onion and a little more brown sugar. Will make again for sure!

Family loved it! I made this in a slow cooker. It's summer so I substituted 1 cup of apple butter for the apples. Left out mustard & bacon and doubled sugar & onion. This was delicious! A keeper!
