Here is a dish my mom made while she was up here visiting a while back. Very different taste but in a good way. And the kids will like it for it being sweet. We had mash spuds on the side. Give it a shot it may surprise you ! Wink

• 1 jar sauerkraut drained
• 1 med. can of diced tomatoes
• 1 onion chopped
• 1 lb of bacon cooked and crumbled
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• mix together and bake @ 350* for 1 hr. Enjoy.

Nothing better than a bowl of hot sauerkraut on a cold day! Excellent recipe, Got1 and thanks for sharing it. So many good, belly-warming foods come out of Germany and Eastern Europe, just like your take on sauerkraut!. Definitely will make this, and I know my kids will love it!

With the sweet taking the bite out of the kraut makes it more appealing to the little ones...I asked my mom where it came from because I figured it was a american take but she said straight from Germany. Not what I thought but I have been wrong 2 times or maybe it was 4 .....hell I don't know..lol

Hey got1 I tried this recipe awhile back when you posted elsewhere. It is excellent. I have not met a sauerkraut dish I don't like.
 
Another hint if you want to take a little sharpness out of sauerkraut and give it a little more thicker consistency. Peel a few medium red potatos and let them sit on the counter until just getting a little brown. Put them in a blender and puree them into a thick consistency. you may want to add a few drops of water. Add this to your sauerkraut untill you reach the desired consistency.
 
Almost makes a saurkraut gravy if you will. Takes some of the sharpness out too. I do this when I make sauerkraut and pork roast.
