Very nice. I scaled back to serve two, but left the sauce amounts as is. :)

I took a couple of liberties - I cut the recipe back to one serving, used a smoked Portuguese very spicy sausage - It did not need ot be browned or simmered so I mixed the sauekraut, coarse grain German mustard, Caraway seed, Dill weed & brown sugar then placed this mixture in the bottom of a baking dish, placed the sausage on top covered with foil and baked in a 325 oven for almost 1 hour, opened the foil, place the cheese between the sausages and broiled for 5 minutes watching that the sausages did not burn, Wonderful flavor from he caraway/dill combination. Thanks Ocean Ivy for a very delicious dish

This was great! Rather than microwave, I just made it in the skillet. I cooked the sausage, then took it out for a minute, drained the sauerkraut and put all of the other ingredients in the bottom of the skillet, put the sausage back on top and covered it to heat for about 15 minutes. It turned out really good. Thanks!
