This recipe was one of my grand mama’s recipes that I found in my mom's recipe box when she passed away. I’m just "guesstimating" on the prep and cook times. This is a taste of my German heritage.

Super easy recipe and very healthy (especially if you use turkey smoked sausage). The only thing I would add is salt and pepper when cooking. As is, it is quite bland and so I used malt vinegar after I cooked it to add flavor.
